Crunchy Banana Bites by Jodie Fitz
This fun treat can become a crunchy caterpillar too….
¾ cup Price Chopper Nutty Nut Cereal
1/3 cup Price Chopper reduced fat peanut butter
1 tablespoon Price Chopper honey
½ teaspoon Price Chopper cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon Price Chopper vanilla extract
Place the peanut butter in a glass bowl and microwave it for at 30 seconds on high. Stir the honey, cinnamon and vanilla extract into the peanut butter. Peel and slice the banana. Fold the banana pieces into the peanut butter mixture so that they are fully covered with the peanut butter mixture, but still banana rounds. Roll the peanut butter covered banana slices in the Grape-Nut cereal so that they are fully coated. Place the banana rounds on a plate and let them set in the refrigerator.
Note: 1 medium sized banana should yield approximately 8 – 10 slices of banana.
Make Ahead: This is a great recipe to make the night before and have ready to serve in the morning.
Caterpillar Crunch: All that you need to create a Caterpillar Crunch is pretzel sticks and four chilled crunchy Banana Bites. Using the pretzel sticks connect three of the crunch banana bites to create the body. Then using half of a pretzel stick, attach a head to the top of one end of the three pieces that are already connected. Break a pretzel stick in half to add antennae to the top of the head. It’s optional, but you can use 2 mini chocolate chip morsels for eyes or a cut piece of raisin.
