Why this recipe works
- It is EASY! It takes less than 5 minutes and you probably already have everything you need in your home.
- It is healthy. This recipe is full of healthy fats, potassium, and vitamins.
- It is versatile. You can use whatever toppings or nut butter that you want.
- It is kid friendly. My toddlers think this is so fun and love it.
- 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.
See recipe card below for a full list of ingredients and measurements.
- Instead of almond butter, you can use peanut butter, cashew butter, or sunflower butter.
- Instead of chia seeds, cacao nibs or hemp hearts, you can use flax seeds, mini chocolate chips, shredded coconut, pumpkin seeds, or any type of topping of choice.
