Need something new to entertain the children this summer break? While this might not be the healthiest snack, it is certainly a delicious recipe that the kids can help you prepare. Have the children pick out their own ingredients, making sure they include organic bananas so they get as much potassium as they can. Have them use a cookie cutter to cut out their favorite shape or cartoon character for a more edible appearance.

This banana split panini can easily be cut in four to share amongst others. To get the most nutrients of this snack be sure to use whole grain bread, organic bananas and even organic strawberries.

Ingredients: Serves 4

  • 4 slices of whole grain bread
  • 1 tbsp. of butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp. of creamy peanut butter
  • ½ cup of thinly sliced strawberries
  • 1 tbsp. of natural honey
  • 1 tbsp. of chocolate syrup


  1. Brush one side of each bread slice with butter
  2. Place two slices on a work surface, buttered side down, and spread with peanut butter. Evenly layer with bananas and strawberries
  3. Drizzle with honey and chocolate syrup
  4. Cover with top halves, buttered side up, and press gently to pack
  5. Place sandwiches on grill, close the top plate and cook until golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes
  6. Serve immediately, topped with whipped cream and cherries

For a full banana split look add whipped cream and a maraschino cherry on top
