Recipe ingredients

Ingredients needed to make banana sushi.
  • Banana– any ripe large banana works. Make sure it is as ripe or as unripe as you prefer to eat them.
  • Almond butter– a creamy almond butter works best in this recipe.
  • Chia seeds– these help build a solid topping on top of the breakfast sushi. They are filled with omega-3s as well.
  • Cacao nibs– this superfood adds a nice crunch and chocolatey taste. I like the ones from Anthonys.
  • Hemp hearts– these are a good source of fiber and omega-3s.
