Banana Dog Bites

If there’s one all time loved recipe on Weelicious it’s Banana Dog Bites. I think I first made these 6 or 7 years ago and they’re still an all time classic. What’s not to love about a recipe that only uses 3 ingredients, take 2 minutes or less to prepare and looks like such fun. If you’ve never tried them before you have to watch this Banana Dog Bites video. I promise it has all kinds of little tips for making the perfect lunch time treat every time!

Even though there are only three ingredients, there’s tons of variations you can use. I like using spelt or half whole wheat half corn tortillas I get at Trader Joes, but you can also use all white flour tortillas or something with seeds inside. The most important part is getting something that’s really flexible. Corn could work, but they would need to be really fresh. Using lavash is a fun idea too!

There’s also plenty of variations with nut butters. You can use peanut, almond, cashew, soy or sun butter. You could also use whipped cream cheese in a pinch. If you’re using large tortillas and bananas it makes about 8-10 pieces which look super cute in a bento style lunchbox. Serve these with some raw veggies and maybe a little snack like a Vegan Cowgirl Cookie or Heart Crispy Treat and you’ve got a vegetarian meal I’m betting your kids will love!

      if you put a little lemon juice on it, it won't :)

      You can also dust them with some crushed Vitamin C tablets to add a little vitamin power AND prevent browning. =)

    I make these all the time for my kids. They love them. Sometimes I will use Nutella, cream cheese and jelly, but either way they love that they can just pick them up with their fingers and pop them in their mouth!

    I've been making these every day for my own lunch lately! Sometimes I use Nutella instead of peanut butter when I want a super yummy treat. I actually just tried Nutella for the first time last week and oh my am I in love. I haven't given any to my kids though because I'm afraid they'll never let me give them anything else again =).

    My friend's mom used to make these all the time when we were little - but she didn't cut them, and they were dubbed \"banana burritos.\" :)

    We do this a lot at my house. We LOVE peanut butter and banana. And if you don't have tortillas, just flatten a piece of bread with a rolling pin or glass. YUM!

    These are super cute, easy, and yummy. DD LOVED them. I used whole wheat and they are a bit hit. I am planning on making them as an appetizer for a brunch next week. I am going to make one set with Nutella, apple butter, and peanut.

    I just made these for my son today! He is 2 years old and he LOVES bananas, so I was grateful for a new way to serve them! We made the recipe as directed, but I heated the wrap up in a pan to get the tortilla a bit crunchy for him! He loved it! Thanks for all the wonderful creations!

      I have made these and left them out at room temperature for several hours and they held up well. I have not tried freezing them. They are super easy to make and I prefer making these in the morning if it is for school lunch instead of the night before.

    I make these all the time for my own lunch. (I don't slice them up, Just cut in half). I use chunky peanut butter and add chocolate chips. Sometimes I put it on the griddle to brown and melt the chips. Yummy and filling.
