This simple 3 ingredient recipe is bound to keep the kids happy this week

These look delicious!

Having two small children I'm always on the lookout for quick and easy recipes that we can whip up together.

With my eldest back in school this week I thought it would be nice to make some treats over the weekend. Both of my kids love bananas so when I spotted this speedy snack I knew it would be very popular with the pair of them.

To recreate these banana bites shared by Mom Life all you have to do is follow these simple steps:

What you'll need - bananas, peanut butter and melting chocolate

1)Cut your banana into slices.

2)Spread a layer of peanut butter onto a slice of banana and sandwich it with another slice.

3)Melt chocolate either in the microwave or over a bowl of hot water


4)Dip your banana bites into the melted chocolate and then place on a tray covered in cooking paper

5)Place in freezer until the chocolate has set

6)Let stand till they are room temperature (or soft enough not to break any little teeth)

I don't know why, maybe it's because we always had nuts in the house around Halloween, but peanut butter always reminds me of autumn.

If your child has a nut allergy or simply doesn't like peanut butter it can be substituted with other fillings.

Try some pudding, jam or even another slice of fruit like strawberry to recreate the recipe to your liking.

Cooking with the kids is a great activity and can be a great way to bond over the weekend after a week of school runs and homework.

We've many simple recipes in our food section so why not take a peek and get making some delicious back to school treats!

You'll get to keep the kids occupied and have yummy food to eat at the end, win-win!
