Banana Nut Crunch

Of all the meals that I have prepared for Bella, this is by far, her favorite. She learned to make it herself in a tasting class she took last year and STILL asks for it---like 5 out of 7 mornings! And if you don't have any kids, don't worry, I have been busted on several occasions sneaking some from her plate cuz even I can't resist. Enjoy!


1 banana
2 tbs peanut butter
1/2 cup Rice Krispies
(or something similiar)
1 Swiffer Sweeper


Put rice crispies in a food processor and blend into crumbs. Set aside. Peel banana and cut in half lengthwise. Spread peanut butter on banana. Cut into little pieces. Carefully carry plate to hungry, crabby little tot. Don't drop plate--avoid a morning meltdown. Watch as hungry, crabby little tot smiles, dips the banana in the "crunch" and grubs silently for a good ten minutes. Drink a cup of coffee.
Relish the silence.

Take a deep breath. Try not to lose your shit as your happy, satisfied tot spills "crunch" all over the newly swept floors.
