Banana Sushi

Banana sushi makes SUCH a fun healthy kid snack! With only 4 ingredients, it's totally customizable – make it your own!

Kid approved, this fun “sushi” recipe will be a hit for the whole family! This recipe can be used for breakfast, snack or dessert and only has 4 ingredients.

A couple of quick tips: To make this nut free, use sunflower seed butter and instead of pistachios, you can substitute coconut flakes.

Banana “sushi” is perfectly kid friendly and easy for them to help make. Have some fun with it! Let your kids pick out their favorite toppings to create their own masterpiece. While I used nuts and cacoa nibs you could use nuts, seeds, mini chocolate chips, chopped strawberries or blueberries. You really can't mess this recipe up! So dig out the aprons and get your kids cooking with you!
