Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich!



My father, or Gumpa as he is known to my children, has taught my girls many a way to eat Peanut Butter. I do believe it is his favorite food. It wasn't until I was probably 10 that I learned not everyone eats Peanut Butter on their Pancakes, Banana's and breakfast cereal. Ahhh - there's nothing like a big bowl of dry Rice Crispy's in the morning with a gob of Peanut Butter sitting on top. Take a bite, dip the spoon, Take a bite, dip the spoon - that was my favorite morning "exercise" as a kid!

My girls have come to LOVE Gumpa's Peanut Butter and Banana "sandwich" (pictured above)! He, of course, will offer the Peanut Butter "Coin" option as well (where you slice the banana into little "coins" and plop a dollop of Peanut Butter on each one - but inevitably they always go for the "Sandwich"! Try one tomorrow morning with your child and make a memory that will last a lifetime!

My little one likes to create this one himself. We put 'ants' in there too (raisins).

A favorite combo in this house too. We like it in miklshake form though! Just pass the straw!

never, thought of the rice crispies with peanut butter. But I used to eat peanut butter and banana sandwiches as a kid, mine were on bread though. I am going to make a 'gumpa style' banana sandwich today.
Also... I love his tomato bean and frank soup combo. I have eaten it all winter. Love it.

I love peanut butter banana sandwiches but never thought of making one without the bread. This is a great idea. Your dad is a genius! Now, I wish I had a some Rice Crispies.
