Summer can be crazier than the school year. We made a large calendar to hang in our TV room to display our commitments throughout the month so my kids understand I can’t be more than one place at the same time. With all the extra activities, my kids are starving and often have to skip meals or at least delay them a few hours. That is when portable nutritious snacks come in handy, and they just love these Frozen Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Bites.
You really don’t even need to keep them in the freezer. After I melt the chocolate, I put them in the freezer but once the chocolate hardens they can stay in the fridge. Make a double batch of these go to snacks, since my kids gobbled them up.
What you will need for these Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Bites:
- Jif To Go® creamy peanut butter
- Dark Chocolate for dipping (optional)
Simply cut your bananas in uniform slices. Add about a teaspoon of peanut butter in between two banana slices.
Secure the stack of bananas with a toothpick and roll in melted dark chocolate. (you can just freeze them after you secure them in toothpicks but my kids adore a little dark chocolate)
Allow the chocolate to set in the freezer or fridge and then gobble.
The kids can grab these whenever they need a little pick me up through out the day and it also makes a great alternative for dessert.
Other great snack options for busy kids:
Have you seen the JIF Creamy Peanut Butter Granola bars? They even have Peanut Butter Chocolate Flavored Granola Bars. These new bars from JIF combine both creamy peanut butter and a yummy chewy granola bar. Parents can feel confident knowing these bars are made with real Jif peanut butter providing 7g of protein per serving.
These will be joining us this summer on many road trips.
Jif To Go® are also convenient snacks for the road or lunch boxes. When I get bored of making sandwiches, I simply through a pack of the peanut butter with cut up apple or celery for a hearty snack.
Pretzels and Peanut Butter is also a great treat. With the left over peanut butter and chocolate I was very tempted to make peanut butter Chocolate Pretzels. The perfect road trip snack too.
Just dip the pretzel log into the peanut butter and then cover with dark chocolate.
Allow it to harden and even adults can not resist this fun road trip snack. We are doing all the driving, maybe we will keep these for ourselves.
