Have you ever thought about how many peanut butter and something sandwiches you've made for your kids? I think I lost count about two years ago. To alleviate the monotony of day in, day out sammie making (for both me and my kids), I've started whipping up these Banana Dog Bites.
Kenya couldn't stop laughing when I asked him, "you wanna make banana dogs?" He just kept saying, "what's a banana dog? That's so silly!" But he loved spreading the nut butter on the tortilla, peeling the banana, laying it in it's "tortilla bed" (that got another big laugh) and rolling it up for the banana to "sleep tight" (still more giggles). Then I simply cut the Banana Dogs into half-inch sushi-style pieces (which looked adorable), and sent him off to school with them. But it wasn’t until his lunch box came home totally empty that I realized just how yummy they were!
2 Large, peeled
Peanut butter/Almond or sunflower butter
1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
1. On a flat surface, place one tortilla and spread peanut butter over it.
2. Place one banana near the edge of the tortilla and roll it up.
3. Slice into 1/2 inch rounds and serve.
If you are tired of making banana sandwiches, here is a recipe that will give you a break from sandwiches and the whole family will like it. Weelicious host is making easy banana dog bites and this time also she has her son for helping. She spreads peanut butter on one side of the tortilla and places a banana on one side and rolls up the tortilla. Cut off the ends and cut into rings. Maybe there is nothing more delicious than banana dog bites.
