Done in 60 Seconds: Banana Bites

It’s official – this collection of 1 minute recipes is now called Express Eats. Welcome to the third installment. I can’t take full credit for this one since a buddy suggested I try peanut butter and granola on banana slices. I took the idea and ran with it! This is pretty straightforward (I guess all of the Express Eats are) but I’ve never thought of it before. It’s a perfect snack for kids and you can get really creative with it. To be honest, I had almost as much fun making it as I did eating it. That’s a lie, it was like 4 different parties in my mouth. Got an Express Eats idea? Send me some suggestions!


1 banana
1/4 cup natural peanut butter
toppings: granola, müesli, almonds, chocolate chips, sliced strawberries, marshmallows, coconut, graham crackers, flax seed or just more peanut butter


1. Break the banana into 1″ bite-sized chunks with your hands (don’t use a knife, or the peanut butter won’t stick to the banana).

2. Plop about 2 tsp peanut butter onto each bite.

3. Top with your favorite toppings.

4. (Optional) Pop in the freezer for 15 minutes before consumption.
