Our daughter, Abby (nine years old) has been reading through a book we have on one of our bookshelves, The Busy Book for Toddlers. With Abraham now two, she has been looking for fun activities to engage him.
The book also includes some fun recipes and she has made two recipes that involve bananas.
Bananas are the only foreign fruit we buy year round. Otherwise, we buy seasonally and avoid buying oranges except for at Christmas and lemons just on special occasions for lemonade on a hot summer day or to make a loaf of lemon tea bread.
Back to bananas - here are two wonderful snacks to make with bananas that we made over the last week.
Slice bananas into circles and roll in crushed graham crackers
Bananas, Honey and Wheat Germ
(They gobbled these up so fast that I didn't get the camera quickly enough.)
Mix some honey with a little milk in a small bowl if it is very thick. Put a small amount of wheat germ in a second bowl. Cut a banana in half and cut into smaller "stick" pieces. Dip in honey first and then wheat germ.
Warm wishes, Tonya
