Banana what??? That’s right – banana sushi. And it was super simple and the kids thought it was delicious! All it took was to peruse a little Pinterest, come up with a few ideas, adjust it to what we needed and voila! A new treat for EJ’s kindergarten class.
I paired it up with sliced strawberries, sliced apples and sliced summer sausage, making it a healthy, hefty snack for a room full of little ones. Take that, new school food rules!
Here’s the simple recipe, along with photo instructions…fool proof, I promise you!
- bread (I used honey wheat…a whole grain, you know)
To start with, take two slices of bread and cut off the crust.
Flatten together with a rolling pin, to make one big, flat slice of bread.
Add a healthy dose of honey…or just a little, whatever your taste.
Peel a banana. If it’s too curved, you can always just use your hands to “straighten” it a bit. In fact, I found the bananas very easy to manipulate into a straight shape…it was just a tad messy.
Next, just roll your bread around the banana, pat the ends together to seal, and cut into slices. It’ll look a little “sushi”-ish. And taste yummy! (If you like bananas and honey.)
