Introducing the Banana Bite

Banana Bites

September 10, 2015   8 Comments

I am always looking for a way to have a little fun with my snack.

My inspiration for starting Snack Girl was to guide people away from Fritos and Hawaiian Punch to the delicious land of healthy snacks.

Sometimes I fail, and sometimes I succeed. I do it by taking things you (hopefully) already have in the house and I innovate.

This is a whole-wheat tortilla, a banana, and a teaspoon of peanut butter and now you have a “Banana Bite”. Woohoo!

Perhaps this is the most obvious thing in the world to do with these three ingredients or maybe (for some of you) it may inspire you to put the Fritos down. I don’t know what will work but I do know that my kids think these are cool.

My husband doesn’t like them (but you can’t please everyone as anyone who runs a blog for 6 years can tell you).

What is your favorite obvious snack?

Can't wait to try this. If you used the Ole Extreme tortilla shells (+1) and 2 tsp on the Jif Reduced fat peanut butter (+2). The whole snack would be 3 pts. yum!

I like to warm up the tortilla a few secs and then spread the PB on it....yum!

Adding to Melissa's comment, heating up the banana (less than 30 seconds) makes it taste sweeter. When I want something quick and yummy, I heat up a banana, add a big spoonful of almond butter, sprinkle some cinnamon on top, and stir. Easy peasy... :)

This is a great idea! I am curious, what size is the whole wheat tortilla - 10 inches?

@Michelle - 10 inch diameter sounds about right. Thanks for your question!
