Hazelnut Banana Bites: FREE Printable Recipe Guides for Children

Post image for Hazelnut Banana Bites: FREE Printable Recipe Guides for Children

My kiddos have a knack for waiting until I’m right in the middle of something to inform me, “I’m hungry! Can I have a snack?” My goal is to teach my children to head into the kitchen to whip up their own healthy snacks. Other than a few Kashi bars, we typically don’t have any prepackaged snacks in the house. Instead, I try to keep plenty of fruits and healthy snack ingredients on hand. The kiddos and I are compiling a little cookbook that they can use independently. The kiddos first made up this hazelnut snack recipe during an afternoon tea party. These recipes may not be fancy but they are kid friendly, simple and tasty!

Step 1:  Carefully slice banana.

  • I have taught my children knife safety and always supervise them when they are cutting.
  • This recipe only requires a butter knife so it is pretty safe.

Step 2:  Spread hazelnut spread on each cracker.

  • Just a little. If you lay it on too thick you’ll end up with a big mess.

I love the idea of a snack cookbook the kids can use independently. I let my kids fix their own snacks and like you it’s rare that we have pre packaged ones so a cookbook full of ideas sounds awesome. What name brand crackers are those? Thanks!

The crackers in the photo are actually Blue Diamond Natural Almond Nut-Thins. They are Wheat & Gluten Free and also low sodium. According to the package they are guilt free!
We also like Back to Nature Organic Stoneground Wheat Crackers. No artificial preservatives, flavors or colors. No hydrogenated Oils. Despite all of that, they are still very tasty! I love these hearty, flavorful crackers!

We created a simple cookbook using a 3 ring binder. I print all of the FREE recipe guides I post here at waddleeahchaa. We have the binder divided into sections: breakfast, lunch and snacks. The children follow the recipes when cooking their meals (I assist and supervise of needed).

Here is a sample of our binder:
