Kids won’t be able to resist this banana sushi recipe! It’s simple – roll up a wrap with peanut butter and a banana, slice and top with sliced strawberries and kiwi for added flair.

These banana sushi rolls are so fun to add to lunchboxes alongside your favorites. If your school is a nut-free zone, swap the peanut butter for soy butter or Sunbutter, or use chocolate hummus!

Nutrition Tip: Think of the fat in your diet as a balancing act. Balance a higher fat option [peanut butter] with low-fat options [like fruit] over time.

  1. Suggestion:
    Flat bread whole wheat (as opposed to tortilla better formed to cover banana)
    Spread peanut butter to cover flat bread
    Sprinkle coconut leaving 1/2″ edge free at 1 end
    Sprinkle with cinnamon
    Place banana at bottom edge and roll towards the coconut free edge. This edge since coated with peanut butter will self stick.
    Slice and serve as desired. My son takes these along for a snack after he exercises or running late for work.

      That’s another great way to make these!

  2. I have a question. Do those get a bit brown if you cut them in the morning and the little one eats them in the afternoon?
    They will be stored in the fridge in the meantime.

      Hi Hope, your best bet is to toss them in a little lemon juice to keep them from browning. Hope that helps!
