I’m a banana fanatic. You might have noticed that I incorporate them into a LOT of my recipes because not only are they good for you, but kids usually love them too. They’re my favorite way to thicken up a smoothie and whenever I add banana slices to a PB & J sandwich, my kids act like I’ve just presented them with the world’s greatest culinary materpiece. Bananas are also a healthy alternative to butter in baked goods. Today I’m sharing a recipe that combines this family favorite ingredient with another favorite food – pizza. Whaaaat? That’s right! I’m going to show you how to make a Banana Breakfast Pizza. Not only will the kids love it, but it’s also super easy to make.

Banana Breakfast Pizza

I’ve learned a couple of tricks from my husband over the years. He somehow gets the kids to do things, not only without having to yell or reprimand, but also in a way that convinces them that they are having fun. It turns out, the key to manipulating raising children is all in the words you use. What I call “chores,” my husband calls “party.” Voila! Cleaning the house becomes fun. So, instead of presenting my kids with “fruit-topped waffles,” I created “banana pizza.”

I guess I could have just strewn a few banana slices on top of the waffle, but I really wanted to sell the “pizza” image (plus, I wanted to sneak in some protein and prevent them from dousing the entire thing in syrup) so I used natural peanut butter as the sauce and added honey as another topping. Also, in an effort to keep this dish as healthy (but also easy) as possible, I used frozen whole-wheat waffles. There are several brands to choose from, just remember to read the ingredients list since some “whole wheat” waffles can be made of mostly enriched flour with a side of whole wheat flour.

Banana pizza is equally good as a snack. It’s full of ingredients that fuel you AND stave off hunger for hours. I love the combination of sweet and salty. If you want to try another pizza recipe the kids will love, try my Air Fryer Margherita Pizza.
