Mum’s NumNums- Snack Attack

Okay, really, let’s be honest. How often do you find yourself running around the house, frantically late for a playdate, trying to get out the door, get the kid’s socks on (or find one that matches…), and you still haven’t brushed your own hair??

Well, if your days are anything like mine, the answer is “Why, all the time!”.

Sometimes busy days don’t always go according to plan. Which is why this quick yet healthy snack is always my Plan B, and everything is portable if you have to take this snack on the road!

Peanut Butter & Banana Graham Sandwiches

PB and B

Now by the photo, I’m sure you have figured out how to throw this together. But in case there is any need for clarification, here is my “recipe”

1) Break Graham Crackers into quarters. I used honey, but I am sure the chocolate ones would be yummy too.
2) Spread Peanut Butter across the Grahams. Almond Honey Butter is also quite good.
3) Top with sliced banana. We have also used diced apples, sliced strawberries, or diced pears to switch it up.
4) For younger kiddos, like Chazz, I top it with another Graham to keep it all together. Well, mostly.

Now doesn’t that sound great?! Peanut butter is a good source of calories, just one Tablespoon has about 90 calories, it packs quite a protien punch, and is an excellent source of Potassium, Phosphorous and Magnesium. Top that with the Potassium, Iron, and Vitamin C from the banana slices, and you have one kid-friendly (and mom approved!) snack.
