The humble banana is a very diverse fruit indeed. You can cook it, chop it, eat it raw and even drink it! But for me the best way is always the dessert recipes you can make with it. So I have decided to find ten of the easiest and quickest (if not at all healthy) banana snack ideas…
Top 10 Recipes for Banana Snacks and Desserts
10 – PB Bites
Simple, tasty and they look amazing. This really is nothing more than a well piped blob of peanut butter onto a small slice of banana.
9 – Frozen Banana Bites
If you are looking for a simple, healthy summer snack idea why not try to make some of these frozen banana bites! Best of all is that they can be made and ready to eat in less than 30 mins!
8 – Pop goes the Banana!
With summer coming up kids are looking for a nice frozen treat, so why not give them the healthy option with these frozen banana pops.
7 – N&B Sandwich
While there isn’t much to making this, I have to admit that I have never tried it! But maybe I should because there is an expert making guide in the link to follow and after all if I am going to try it I want to make sure it is the best Banana sandwich ever made.
6 – Spice up your life!
It is rare for both bananas and spices to be in the same recipe, but that is exactly what this moist snack cake offers us. And just when you thought that sounds good enough you can top it all off with a cool cream cheese icing.
5 – Bananuts!
I have never even heard of banana bread before, let alone putting it into donut form! They might not have made it into my post “Top 10 Ring Donuts” but these ones with a browned butter glaze look well worth trying.
4 – Baconanas
I would love to make and indeed taste most of this top 10, but this one I am not so sure about. Bacon seems to get everywhere these days, but should it really be wrapped about a banana?
3 – Banana Cake
I am not a fan of banana cake, but this looks like the one that might well change my mind. With a tasty blog of Nutella to top it off, this will make for a fantastic snack with a nice cup of tea or coffee. Imagine this fresh from the oven, the smell, the warmth in the mouth, and then all those flavours knocking your taste buds for 6.
2 – Mixed up fruit
This is not a dessert, it is a work of art! With Vanilla Wafers, bananas, strawberries and a light rum sauce it is sure to go down a treat. But I for one will not be sharing it.
1 – Mini Splits
Maybe it is the hard chocolate bottom that has been dipped in hundreds and thousands, or maybe it is the vanilla ice cream center, or the whipped cream with a maraschino cherry on top! I have no idea which one of the amazing sounding things it is, but what I do know is when you put them together they make for a very serious banana snack indeed.
