The Banana Hot Dog
Okay, not the best picture, but I had to snap this on my iPhone quickly before my tweener turned away (hence the blank stare look). Today, she made herself a banana hotdog for lunch. I couldn’t be prouder!
So if you’re kids are getting tired of PB&J or you just want something different for lunch or a snack–give this a try. Warning: it’s deceptively filling!
For each “hotdog” you’ll need
- a banana
- a piece of flatbread
- peanut butter
- jam (optional)
It couldn’t be easier to put it together–slather the flatbread (or pita bread or even a regular hot dog bun) with peanut butter and jam, put the whole, peeled banana in the center and roll-up. One banana hot dog that even picky eaters will like. Told you it was simple!
And if you have a kid who doesn’t like peanut butter–or is allergic–go ahead and use almond butter or yogurt instead.
