I love doing something a little bit fun with food. It always amazes me that the minute I put something in bite or ball form the kiddies devour it. Mr 7 yr old hates bananas. He can sniff them out from a mile away and will very rarely eat something containing it. Now these Banana Bread Bites he loved. I don’t get it!?
These have been a huge hit in our house. So much so my partner even Facebooked a picture of them and mentioned how fab they were. Now when he posts something on Facebook it must be good!
I freeze these in lots of two for the kiddies lunchboxes. By doing them in ball form they go s much further than a traditional banana bread. I use a cake pop maker for these. I have noticed they go on special all the time for $10. We use our all the time and it has been a great purchase for us however I know not everyone will want to purchase one. You can use those little mini baby muffin cases in place of a cake pop maker.
