  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!
