Banana Sushi

Okay, so this is the cutest snack ever!  I had some bananas on hand that needed to be used or frozen, so I remembered this fun and yummy snack that I had at a get together before.  Bananas are the main ingredient in these bites of delight, and that’s great, because they are SO great for you!

So, as I was saying, I remembered this snack that I had at a friend’s get together a while back – banana sushi!  This stuff is great.  It looks kinda fancy, but really it’s so easy to throw together, and it’s up to you what to top it with!  I used almond butter as my base, then I topped that with chia seeds, finely chopped apple, crushed walnuts and some unsweetened shredded coconut.  SOme other possibilities could be any nut butter as a base, mini chocolate chips, nuts, seeds, dried or fresh fruit, and granola.  Really, you can top it with anything, which is what makes these so fun!

Directions

1.) Peel your bananas, and place them on a baking sheet.  Evenly spread your nut butter on the bananas, then sprinkle your bananas with your toppings.  Gently press your toppings into your nut butter so they will stick better.
