I decided to make lunch a little more exciting today! The kids love having a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with a banana on the side. Even when I try to fix something else, they insist on the same ol’ thing. So I thought I’d have some fun and change it up at least a little bit, with a minion inspired idea!
So my kids have only seen Despicable Me once and have not yet seen the new Minions movie but they’re still obsessed with minions. We were at the doctor’s office last week and my 2 1/2 year old saw a commercial and yelled “Minions!” for everyone around to hear. It was adorable how excited he was. I can see it though – those little cute yellow guys are hard not to love!
So here’s the recipe! Try not to forget.. it’s a hard one to remember ;) No, but really, I know we all need ideas once in a while, so remember to Pin this for later!
What you’ll need:
- Banana – sliced
- Peanut Butter
- Fruity Pebble cereal or sprinkles
How to make it:
It’s pretty simple and only takes a couple of minutes. The kids could even make it themselves!
1) Spread peanut butter on flat side of crackers
2) Add 1 slice of banana per cracker
3) Sprinkle Fruity Pebbles on top
Add jelly between the peanut butter and banana
Skip the fruity pebbles and sprinkles and add chia seeds on top
Sandwich a cracker on top but keep the bananas separate
For those with peanut allergies, use yogurt instead of peanut butter
