With September coming to a close our family is fully entrenched in our Fall schedule. As much as I tried to keep things low-key there are a few evenings of the week where we’re busy which means I have to be creative with healthy snack choices for after school and sports practices.
Anyone who knows me well has probably begun to smile now, you see cooking just isn’t my forte. I do cook a few things extremely well but that is probably because they’re my fail-safe recipes like my Prosciuto and Pesto Pizza Recipe. Generally speaking I’m not very creative, that’s why I’m thankful for the Life Made Delicious website. Today I headed over as I often do and I found a snack that is simple to make and very healthy for the girls.
The fine folks at General Mills Canada make it very simple to find recipes on their website; it’s organized by meal, ingredients, occasion, special diet or brand. You can even keep your own online recipe box there.
Here’s the recipe I tried, I chose it because I had all of the ingredients on hand and it looked delicious. You will see in my photos that I used half of the ingredients because I was short on bananas.
- 4 firm ripe bananas
- 8 wooden sticks with rounded ends
- 1-1 1/2 cups (250-375 mL) low-fat yogurt (any flavour)
- 3 cups (750 mL) Cheerios* cereal or Multi-Grain Cheerios* cereal
Cover baking sheet with waxed paper. Peel bananas; cut bananas crosswise in half. Insert wooden stick into cut end of each banana. Roll in yogurt, sprinkle with cereal.
Place on baking sheet.Freeze about 1 hour or until firm. Wrap each banana in plastic wrap or foil. Store in freezer.
Chelsea gave them two thumbs up and claims they’re the “Best after gymnastics snacks ever!!”
