RECIPE

Crunchy Monkey Peanut Butter-Banana Sticks

Serve with Apple-Maple Chicken Sausage Breakfast Sammies.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chunky-style peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey (a couple of drizzles)
  • 1 cup fancy granola with nuts and raisins
  • 2 large bananas
  • 4 ice cream sticks or chopsticks

Preparation

Heat the peanut butter in the microwave on high for 20 seconds to loosen it, then stir the honey into it.


Place the granola into a food processor and lightly process to crush up the granola, nuts and raisins.


Peel and cut each banana in half across the middle. Insert a popsicle or chopstick into the cut end of each half-banana. Spread one side of each banana stick with 1/4 of the peanut sauce, then coat liberally with spoonfuls of granola, gently pressing it into the peanut butter.


Eat the bananas right off the sticks, but serve on a plate to catch the crumbs!
