Peanut Butter and Banana Faux Sushi

I know this isn’t a “real” recipe but I saw the idea on Pinterest and I had to try it.  We spend so much of our lives trying to get Evan to eat.  He isn’t very picky but he eats like a bird.  It drives Dewey and I NUTS.  Sunday Dewey took Will and Nicole skiing so Evan and I had a Mommy & Evan day.  We were heading to the zoo so I wanted to feed him something before we left.  Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are one of his favorites (ish) but we still have to cajole him to eat it.  Enter the peanut butter and banana sushi!

First take two slices of bread and cut the crusts off.  Use a rolling pin to roll the bread flat (you have to do this or it will fall apart)!  Spread the entire slice with peanut butter (or the nut butter of your choice).  Either spread 2/3 with jam or add pencil sized pieces of banana.  I then drizzled the banana one with a bit of agave nectar.

Soon to be sushi

Roll it up and slice it. I found that it cut much better if you sawed back and forth with the knife instead of trying to go through in one slice.

Banana Peanut butter sushi and Peanut Butter and Jam sushi

The banana ones look MUCH better than the jam ones. Evan thought the idea of peanut butter and banana was the GROSSEST ever but I convinced him to try one. Soon there was nothing left but crumbs.

Oh…and don’t forget to let them use chopsticks!

Go chopsticks…GO!

Forget it! I’ll just use the ol’ “stab it” method!
