As you know, we spent last weekend cruising. If you would like to catch up on my cruise posts, you can click on the links below to take a peek! I still have one more day to blog about, but I thought I would interrupt my cruise posts for a quick snack/breakfast/dessert idea.
While we were away on the cruise, I realized that I forgot to hold our mail service. OOPS! Luckily, we were only gone a few days, so the mailbox wasn’t TOO full. But there was one fun surprise waiting for me:
Two full-size jars of Planters Peanut Butter to play with and sample! (Note: I received these items for free as a part of the Foodbuzz Tastemakers Program with National Peanut Board.)
I don’t know about you, but we definitely put away some peanut butter in this household. It’s great on oats, apples, bananas, in smoothies, and of course on bread! I honestly think that my child could exist solely on PB&J sandwiches and be perfectly happy.
Meet the Peanut Butter-Banana Waffle Pizza.
As I was creating this snack, I was thinking about what just about everyone has in their pantry/freezer most of the time. We almost always have the following items: waffles, peanut butter, bananas, and chocolate syrup.
That’s all I used. This isn’t the most creative recipe, but it is something that is truly filling, has protein, and has a little bit of sweetness.Every day when we come home from school and work, we’re both hungry. I thought this would make a great after-school snack… although I will admit that I ate them for dessert tonight! The waffle is the perfect canvas to make a pizza because all the peanut butter just filled all those little waffle nooks!
Peanut Butter Banana Waffle Pizzas
(makes one serving)
- 1 frozen waffle (whole wheat is more filling and nutritious, but any waffle will work)
- 1 Tbsp. Peanut Butter
- 1/4 banana, thinly sliced
- Quick drizzle of chocolate syrup (optional—but why would you skip it???)
Preparation: Pop the waffle in the toaster oven. Spread PB over the waffle when it is finished. Top with sliced bananas and syrup. Serve with milk in a hippopotamus cup. :)
Thanks, FoodBuzz and Planters for the samples!
