Peanut butter banana rolls

These peanut butter and banana rolls make a great, filling breakfast or tasty snack.  Megan had them today for her lunch because she wasn’t feeling well and I knew she was more likely to eat something sweet.  They were really quick and easy to make, tasty and healthy… what’s not to love?!

Ingredients

  • 1 banana
  • 1 slice of bread
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Method

  • With a rolling pin, roll the bread out as flat and thin as you can then cut off the crusts.
  • Spread the peanut butter evenly over the bread.
  • Place the banana at one end of the bread and roll the bread tightly around it like a sausage roll.
  • Crack the egg into a bowl and whisk, you can add a little milk if you like but it’s not essential.  Sprinkle the cinnamon into the egg and mix well.
  • Dip the banana roll into the egg mixture and coat well.
  • In a good non stick pan on a medium heat cook the roll until golden, turning so it cooks evenly.
  • Remove from the heat and cut into slices.
  • Serve and enjoy!

We served ours with fruit and Megan loved them!

These are great for baby led weaning, fussy toddlers or just as a treat for bigger kids or adults too!

If your child has a nut allergy you can use nut free chocolate spread or other alternatives instead of the peanut butter.  These are also really tasty with Biscoff spread! (The kids didn’t get a look in with those ones!)
