Peanut Butter Banana Chips

In a bid to get my niece to enjoy bananas (she hates them), I created peanut butter banana chips. She loves nuts, but if your little one isn't keen on peanut butter, try almond or cashew butter, which are milder tasting butters which go down a treat.



I only use 'plain' peanut butter, as in pb which is sugar, salt, and oil-free. I don't want my niece eating any unnecessary additives, so I don't use any when I cook for her.

After dinner, these were gobbled up in a matter of minutes. I recommend three chips for 4 year olds, five chips for age 6 and up. Although these are a natural snack for adults, for kids they're a sugary dessert, so I try to limit how much my niece consumes, so I won't have my sister to deal with when she picks her up.

Preparation Time: 2 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 3 servings

Ingredients
1 banana
2 tblsp peanut butter
1 tblsp set honey
Tsp coconut oil

Method
Preheat the oven to 100 degrees/gas mark 2.

Slice the banana as evenly as possible to ensure an equal bake.



Place on a tray greased with the coconut oil and place in the oven for 30 minutes.



Remove the chips from the oven after 15 minutes and turn over. Place back in the oven, once turned.



Put the honey and peanut butter together in a bowl and place in the microwave for 20 seconds.



Remove from the microwave and mix together.



Remove the 'chips' from the oven and transfer to a plate immediately, before they harden and 'stick' to the tray.



Arrange the banana chips on a plate - I have arranged them in a heart shape.



Using a knife spread the peanut butter mix on to the banana chips, joining the 'heart' together.



These little banana chips are high in fibre, so they're perfect for both adults and grown ups. I am happy to divulge, my grandmother was suffering with constipation, and although I never thought these little bites were merely a healthy snack, after a handful of these she'd reportedly been to the toilet. Win for all then.
