How to Make Banana Sushi Rolls

Banana Sushi Ingredients:

How to Make Banana Sushi:

  1. Peel Banana and spread with peanut butter. This step can be a little messy, so I placed the banana on non-stick foil (parchment paper would also work well) and spread the peanut butter on each side with a knife.

2. Place granola in a zippered baggie a crush with rolling pin (or any other hard kitchen object). You want to get the granola to a finer consistency so that it sticks to the peanut butter on the banana — large pieces of granola are too heavy to stick.

3. Roll banana into crushed granola, covering each side. I put the crushed granola into a container larger than the banana to make this easier.

3. Cut banana into sushi-sized pieces and serve immediately. For fun, try to eat banana sushi with chopsticks. My daughter is a chopsticks master so this was very easy for her, but this would be a great way to introduce younger children to chopsticks.

The end result of our banana sushi snack was incredibly delicious and super satisfying with the combination of carbs and protein. It was also very fun to make together!

The Member's Mark products I used were top quality, too. Member's Mark worked with product developers and food scientists who traveled the world to source best-in-class ingredients and processing methods. I can honestly say that the Member’s Mark items I've tried rival some top national brands— and the new packaging is very stylish!

In addition to pantry staples, fresh food options, tastes-like-homemade desserts, the Member's Mark line includes napkins, plates, and utensils, which makes for easy one-stop shopping.

How To Make Banana Sushi:

The banana sushi rolls are really easy to make and are sooo delicious! All you need is three bananas (or of course more if you like), peanut butter, dark chocolate, pistachios, coconut flakes, and chia and sesame seeds. First coat the bananas with peanut butter, then cover them with melted chocolate and sprinkle them with the above named toppings. Let the chocolate harden for a couple of minutes, this will take about 5-10 minutes depending on how warm it is in your kitchen.

On hot summer days, put them in the freezer for a few minutes. To avoid chocolatey fingers, I sticked toothpicks in both ends of the bananas, so it’s easier to hold them while you cover them with chocolate. Then cut them into bite-sized sushi pieces with a sharp knife and you’re done. I told you it was super easy, didn’t I?

Chopped nuts like almonds or peanuts are also great toppings. You can either eat the banana sushi right away or freeze it for an hour and two and enjoy it as easy vegan ice cream bites. I love having them wait for me in the freezer, so I can just get one once in a while (or every other hour) as a little treat. :-)

I hope you enjoy this recipe. If you make these banana sushi rolls I’d love to hear from you how you liked them. :-) Hope you all have a great weekend!

What is Banana Sushi

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that Ransom is the star of the show!

Whether he is out in the garden harvesting his own vegetables or in the kitchen whipping up his own version of Coconut Fried Shrimp, at three years old he shows us all that age is just a number.

Over time, I have found that the more I involve my him in the kitchen, and in the garden, the more interested he is in not only preparing healthy food, but actually eating it too.

Banana sushi is one of Ransom&rsquos favorite recipe and he thinks your little ones will like it too! Preparing this fun recipe together is a great way to get your little ones involved in the kitchen as well.

Cooking something together is one of the best ways that you can get them interested in health, nutrition, and food preparation from a young age and help them to develop the skills that they need to benefit them later in life.

    So I originally made this homemade sweet snack for the little ones, buuuut, it was so good I actually had it for myself! I mean it combines chocolate and sushi in one, how can it go wrong? I must admit though, it did take a little more work than I’d like for a snack but OMG they are so good! They serve as the perfect after school snack, a playdate kiddie icebreaker, or just a yummy dessert for kids (and adults too!)

    Keep in mind this recipe does contain peanuts and dairy so watch out for those food restrictions. An alternative would be to skip the peanut coating and chocolate. It taste delicious either way!



    Spread peanut butter generously onto the wholewheat tortilla.

    Place the banana on the outer edge and roll the tortilla and the banana together.

    Cut the roll into half and inch portions.

    Pour half a cup of chocolate chips and 1 tsp of coconut oil into a microwave safe bowl. Melt in the microwave for 1 minute.

    Dip the pieces into the chocolate and, later, the crushed peanuts.

    Tip: If you don’t have coconut oil, you may substitute with a little bit of butter.

    Try making this yummy snack recipe without eating it all before your little ones get to it! Ill be the first to admit I ate some myself! Let me know how it goes!

    Banana sushi is the best and easiest snack ever.

    The full (and easy) tutorial is below but a few things to keep in mind when you are making this:

    • Banana sushi is messy. I have yet to really make this and not spill granola on my counter and get peanut butter all over my hands but just go with it. If you don’t like a mess, I recommend using a fork to eat it and try to keep things as neat as possible when rolling the banana in the toppings.
    • The possibilities are endless for toppings and combinations. I always use a nut butter and honey mix as the base and first layer then roll it in whatever I have on hand. Sometimes its granola, coconut flakes, chocolate chips, anything!
    • I use Wedderspoon’s Manuka Honey, which you know is my go-to honey for everything non-baking related. It adds the perfect little touch of sweetness (and stickiness) to the banana to help the toppings keep.
    • This snack tastes best day of but you can also freeze it for a couple days and eat it as a frozen treat. I like doing this is if I cover the banana in some chocolate too!

    Always Order Dessert

    Hey guys! I'm so excited to share that throughout the month of May, I'll be teaming up with The Dr. Oz Show to create and share super fun snack and dessert recipes as part of their #28DayShrink challenge to trim down belly fat before summer.

    As you guys know, I'm ALL ABOUT indulgences, but I've also shared how balance is important to me, too (and not just because I have to go on TV every so often--though that's definitely a big part of it!).

    To me, true indulgences are things that are really luscious and worthwhile. And I mean really worthwhile.

    I don't want a handful of stale cookies or something from a vending machine I want a lush super ripe pile of strawberries dipped in dark chocolate, a runny and crispy-edged fried egg served over a bed of beautifully-dressed greens, or a perfectly juicy and well-seasoned roast chicken with herbed quinoa salad on the side.

    Basically it's the good stuff, which is why I LOVE this challenge.

    It's about skipping all that so-not-worth-it stuff, and replacing it with loads of yummy, real ingredients like avocados, eggs, whole grains, fresh seasonal fruit and veggies, and protein. It's super do-able and very easy to personalize.

    Even better? They've asked me and two other awesome food bloggers to take those ingredients and turn them into gorgeous, super Instagram and Pinterest-worthy recipes that you can eat and enjoy as you follow this program. Basically our job is to inspire you and keep you loving the food so you make it all the way through the challenge.

    I'm going to be sharing healthy snacks and desserts that feature MUFAs (like these Banana Dessert Sushi). MUFA stands for monounsaturated fatty acids, and are found in nuts, seeds, olives, avocados, and other fabulous ingredients. They're essential for keeping you full and helping cut down belly fat.

    Also, they are some of the most delicious things on earth!

    Beth from Blue Barn Kitchen is handling breakfast with all kinds of fun avocado and egg recipes (I'm kind of jealous that it's her job to make avocado recipes now--not gonna lie).

    Kate from Simply Savory by Kate is going to create awesome whole grain recipes for dinner featuring ancient grains like quinoa and farro. (The quinoa salad she shared on the show was all kinds of amazing.)

    We'll each be sharing recipes and quick ideas on our blogs and on, as well as on social media (if you're not following me on Instagram or Twitter, do it now! And follow Dr. Oz, too!)

    Everyone on the challenge will be taking pictures and sharing their ups and downs and successes and questions using the hashtag #28DayShrink.

    The fun starts May 1 and continues throughout the month, so be sure to join us!

    This is a version of the recipe that I shared on The Dr. Oz Show today. It's a Banana Dessert Sushi (aka MUFA Rolls!) that tastes as good as it looks. Super easy to make--it's simply a banana rolled in your favorite nut butter and a variety of seeds and nuts.

    You can get really creative, too!

    Add spices like cinnamon or nutmeg, or sprinkle on some raw cocoa nibs or cocoa powder.

    P.S. I recommend making a few in advance and keeping them in the freezer for a healthy snack or sweet treat to enjoy throughout the week!

    Banana Dessert Sushi (MUFA Rolls)
    Yields 2 servings (1/2 banana per serving)

    1 banana
    2 tablespoons unsweetened natural nut butter (such as cashew butter, peanut butter, or almond butter)
    1/3 cup TOTAL of your favorite crushed or chopped nuts and seeds (such as almonds, pistachios, sesame seeds, chia seeds, flax seeds, unsweetened coconut flakes, etc.)

    Optional additions: unsweetened cocoa powder, ground cinnamon, raw cacao nibs, sea salt

    Spread entire banana thinly with your choice of nut butter

    Spread chopped nuts and seeds on a shallow plate and roll banana over it, pressing lightly so that the nuts and seeds stick to the banana. Slice covered banana into 1" thick slices. Eat immediately OR place in the freezer until solid, then transfer to a zipped bag to store.

    Note: Each daily serving is 1/2 banana (or approximately 3-4 sushi pieces). I recommend making 2-3 whole bananas at a time, then storing in the freezer to enjoy a few bites at a time as a snack or healthy dessert.
