Breakfast Banana Splits
I’m partnering with Little Partners to bring you today’s recipe, all opinions are my own. Thank you for helping me work with companies I love!
Yogurt, fruit and granola make these breakfast banana splits a healthy and fun way to start your day!
For those of you who have followed along for quite some time now, you know I LOVE breakfast but struggle with finding the time to make something other than eggs or pancakes in the morning. I’m sure I’m not alone. Sometimes my kids get a bowl of Cheerios and a banana and we call it good. Today though, I wanted to share something extra special that we made recently: breakfast banana splits. They’re healthy, wholesome and perfect for packing up or eating in.
These were so fun to make! Not only that, but we had a blast eating them too. My kiddos giggled the entire time because they thought they were getting a “treat” for breakfast. We started by grabbing some yogurt (we really love using Stonyfield double cream or their flavored tubes), granola (sky’s the limit, you stick with one kind, or go crazy and do a mix of vanilla granola and chocolate granola), fresh fruit, mini chocolate chips, and of course, sprinkles.
Thanks to the Learning Tower, my sous chef was able to help me prep and assemble each individual bowl. Whenever I’m in the kitchen, he’s always eager to get in on the action. The Original Learning Tower from Little Partners allows him (and my youngest) to be independent AND safe, while I prep, bake and cook. They absolutely love using it, and I love that they’re entertained and happy- it makes time spent in the kitchen fun for everyone! He was a pro at cutting out those strawberry hearts!
The tower is strong, sturdy and stays in place. It’s unique design allows it to stand flush against the counter and allows toddlers to climb in and out of it easily. The adjustable height on it makes it perfect for kids as young as 18 months and all the way up to six years old. We use The Original Learning Tower every single day. When it’s not breakfast, lunch or dinner we tuck it into the corner and the kiddos play on it & under it. It makes the perfect tower for kings & princesses. ????????(use code: LMS10 = 10% off your Little Partners purchase ????)
If you’re packing this up to take on the go, you can use a rectangular container, and actually split your bananas in half, but since we were eating ours at home, we grabbed some bowls and sliced up the bananas (also so much easier for our little ones to eat). Layer them however you please, just don’t forget a pinch of sweetness on top, whether that’s coconut, chocolate chips, chocolate almonds, sprinkles or candy coated sunflower seeds.
These breakfast banana splits are a fun, healthy, and wholesome way to start the day, for both kids and adults alike! They only take a few minutes to prep and the options are endless. Enjoy!
