Peanut Butter Banana Pops


Happy Monday! We had a full and exciting weekend of seeing lots of old friends at our 10 year high school reunion. It is hard to believe that it has been that long ago! It was fun to see and meet spouses and children of those I grew up with. With Facebook these days of course made it much easier to keep up with where most people are and what they are doing, but to have face to face conversations with those I have not seen in a long time was well worth it.

Well on another note, of being busy and with children always wanting something new and exciting known as a "treat" which usually includes sugar and other icky stuff...we decided to get creative with the good ol' peanut butter/banana combo and turning it into a spectacular treat for my little guy...well to him it was like the best ever...We are always looking for creative but simple, healthy snacks with ingredients that we have on hand.

1. peel banana
2. spread it with peanut butter
3. roll into goodies!

Simple as that!

Fantastic Goody Ideas:
*nuts of any kind {walnuts, sliced almonds, chopped peanuts, etc.}
*seeds of all kinds {sunflower, chia, pumpkin, etc.}
*whole oats
*raisins or other dried fruit
*crispy rice cereal
*chocolate chips

Really you could roll it in whatever you want. You could even use almond butter or sunflower butter instead. We rolled ours in walnuts and mini chocolate chips for a special treat. So really it could be as healthy or not healthy as you make it. :)
