When we were little we had the same routine after school. You got home, washed your hands, then jumped on a barstool to see what Mom had in store for an after school snack. I always loved her snacks that she prepared. Now that I have kids of my own I love making fun treats for them while they watch on the barstools.
Back to school season really is coming up fast and these BaNilla Wafer Bites are perfect for a fun after school snack. It only takes 5 ingredients and a few minutes to throw together!
I first tried spreading the peanut butter on the bananas and realized it is SO much easier to spread them on the vanilla wafers!
This recipe is a perfect one for kids to help!
If you are using large bananas you can use normal Vanilla Wafer cookies. If your bananas are medium or small bananas, use Mini Vanilla Wafer cookies instead.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 10 hours. They are best right after you make them. If you go longer than 10 hours, your bananas will start to go brown and the cookies will go soft.
Sometimes the banana would move a little bit when I would dip it in the chocolate. All you need to do is move it back into place after you dip it in chocolate so it will harden exactly where you want it!
If you have little kids, I would suggest getting the mini wafers and a smaller banana. That way, they are easier to eat.
My kids gave this recipe two thumbs up. In other words, they LOVED it!
