Kids won’t be able to resist this banana sushi! It’s simple – roll, cut and add sliced strawberries and kiwi for added flair. These sushi rolls will keep in lunchboxes until lunchtime. If your school is a nut-free zone, swap the peanut butter for soybutter or sunbutter instead!
I have started collecting back-to-school recipes for my kids so when I need to pack snacks or a lunch I have ideas ready. Today’s Banana Sushi Rolls are a fun, kid-friendly recipe that are the perfect addition to your child’s lunchbox or works as a nice after-school snack. My kids love to help make these Banana Sushi Rolls-it is a great way to get them involved.
These sushi rolls are also very customizable–if your school is nut-free you can use sunbutter. You can add a variety of fruits and berries. If you are serving these at home or your school isn’t nut-free try adding crushed peanuts or almonds to the rollups. This recipe uses one large tortilla that you roll up and can easily split the sushi into two lunchboxes or bento boxes. I like to make this and serve it with other goodies–vegetables, cheese, dried fruit and yogurt.
