Too Tired to Try Tuesday: Banana Dog Bites


I don’t know about you, but I’m always looking for snacks other than crackers, crackers, or more crackers to feed the kidlets. (Seriously, what is up with the cracker obsession?) And today while poking around online, I found a simple, yet absolutely brilliant snack idea from Catherine at Weelicious that I’m sure my kids will enjoy making and eating: Banana Dog Bites.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Tortillas
  • Bananas
  • Peanut butter (or any other nut [e.g., almond butter] or non-nut butter [e.g., soy or sunflower seed butter])

Then it’s as simple as spreading the peanut butter on the tortillas, rolling it all up, and cutting it into sushi-style pieces. I bet these would even be good heated up a little and with a drizzle of honey added.

To see the complete post with step-by-step instructions from Catherine at Weelicious, please click here.

And if you’d like to find even more kid-friendly recipes, please be sure to check out Catherine’s new book — Weelicious Lunches: Think Outside the Lunch Box with More Than 160 Happier Meals — set to hit shelves September 3rd.

As always, if you try it, let us know how it turns out. And send some pics!

I’m no cooking or crafting guru, so I started these Too Tired to Try Tuesday posts to share craft and recipe ideas that I’ve come across and would really like to try but am just too damned tired (that sounds better than lazy, right?) to get around to. In addition to ideas that I find, I am open to submissions from you–either something tried and true or something you want to try but haven’t had the time to. Just send me an email at raisingwildthingsblog@gmail.com with your ideas, and I may share them here. (And by “may” I mean “will definitely”! I just confessed how lazy tired I am, so if you take the time to send me something to share, I’m going to share it!)
