Refreshing Breakfast On A Stick
July 16, 2012 11 Comments
Are you hot? How would you like some steaming oatmeal?
Well, I have an alternative for those of you who are sweltering. Try this - a frozen banana with granola stuck to it.
This is the opposite of a bowl of cereal with a few slices of banana. You have a banana with a few slices of cereal!
Why does this work? First, it is cold which will feel good in this summer heat. Secondly, it is fun. Everything is more fun served on a popsicle stick (I am looking at you Filet Mignon). Finally, these are easy to make.
All you need is some popsicle sticks (which you can find at craft stores), bananas, yogurt, granola, and some optional raisins or chocolate chips.
The best part is you don’t have to fire up your oven to make these. Just put them on some parchment paper in your freezer and the next morning you are looking like “Super Mom” as you hand them to your children.
Yes, you can wear a cape (I do).
These also make a great snack or replacement for those traditional sugar filled multi-colored popsicles.
Other fun stuff to do to bananas, a popsicle stick, and a freezer:
- dip them in melted chocolate
- spread them with peanut butter and then cereal
- add Rice Krispies for added crunch
Have you tried a frozen banana treat?
