These tasty and toddler approved Banana Sushi Bites have been sponsored by Honey Bunches of Oats Chocolate as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I only write about products that I love and trust for my own family ♥
If you have a toddler, you know that encouraging them to eat healthy can be tricky (let alone eating anything at all some days!). Luckily for me, my sweet boy Ransom will eat anything on a stick, so I put my paper straws to use once again to create some Banana Sushi featuring Ransom’s favorite cereal, Chocolate Honey Bunches of Oats!
The Perfect HealthyTreat
It is no secret that I love my sweets, which is why I make so many healthy dessert recipes. But as we all know, living a healthy lifestyle means enjoying everything in moderation – even chocolate!! That is why I love these Chocolate Honey Bunches of Oats. They provide the perfect chocolate taste with the use of real cocoa plus a perfect texture from the crispy flakes and everyone’s beloved ‘bunches’.
I have always loved Honey Bunches of Oats and am so glad that I can share them with my little one with his sensitive tummy. Thankfully this chocolate cereal is also gluten-free. When my handsome devil decided that he no longer wanted to eat just a plain banana, I decided to get a little crafty. This banana sushi recipe is completely gluten-free and perfect for anyone who has adopted a gluten-free lifestyle, especially with little ones in the family. Luckily Honey Bunches of Oats has remained dedicated to being delicious, even for those who are gluten sensitive or intolerant.
This recipe is also a great way to get your little ones involved in the kitchen, which is one of the best ways that you can get them interested in health, nutrition, and food preparation! Ransom loved making this treat with me, and after I put him down for a nap, mama enjoyed eating these tasty treats all to herself 🙂

- 1 tablespoon of almond butter or your favorite kind of nut butter
