Banana Boats with Peanut Butter & Granola


Do you or your kids love bananas? Are bananas a go-to breakfast or snack? I have an idea for you. Bananas are great by themselves, but they are even better when you dress them up with additional ingredients.

My girls, Katie and Sophia, love bananas. Sometimes we’ll eat the bananas plain. Other times we’ll like to change things up.

One of the ways I like to dress up bananas is by making banana boats. They are very easy to make and taste great. I cut a banana in half and spread peanut butter on top of each half. Then I add ingredients on top such as granola, chocolate chips, sliced almonds, or shredded coconut.


Here is the recipe for my banana boats.
