Healthy Breakfast Banana Split

Healthy Breakfast Banana Split | Mama Papa BubbaBased on my beginning Toddler Food posts, this breakfast is an old favourite, but for one reason or another, I haven’t made it in a very long time.  I guess I kind of forgot about it.  But the other day, when Miss G’s breakfast request involved only one stipulation – something with bananas – it was the first thing I thought of.  I made her her first breakfast banana split in a long time, and she absolutely gobbled it up.  When lunch time rolled around, she requested another and convinced me with a “But Mama, I looooooooved that banana split.  You made it soooo yummy.”  I finally drew the line at dinnertime when she requested a third, but she’s had it for breakfast several times since.  

Breakfast Banana Split Ingridents | Mama Papa BubbaIt’s such a simple morning meal, but it’s healthy, can be made a ton of different ways, and almost tastes like dessert for breakfast. ☺  They change from one time to another, but here’s our usual line up of ingredients…  1/2 a banana cut lengthwise, plain organic greek yogurt (you could use sweetened yogurt if that’s what you’re used to), some almond butter (any nut butter would be delicious), a strawberry sliced up, and something to serve as sprinkles (today we used unsweetened coconut, but we’ve also used chia seeds and hemp hearts).

  3. I always have a hard time finding the right almond butter, any suggestion on brands? Thanks.

    hi, I tried this with my girls and they both loved it. My eldest is fairly picky and would prefer toast with butter every day of the week, but after trying this she has requested it over and over. Thank you
