Peanut Butter Banana Caterpillar

My little dude is really into bugs and everything creepy crawly. Over the weekend he was on a play date and his buddy’s mom served the most adorable treat: a peanut butter banana caterpillar. Since then it’s all he can talk about; he shares about it every day at school during circle time, and every afternoon he asks to make one, but I keep forgetting to buy bananas. Today I finally bought some bananas and I’m going to surprise him with this fun and healthy snack. I think he’s gonna freak.

    I made about half inch thick slices.

    It's like brick mortar, just spread it on with a knife and place it onto another banana slice.

    I keep mini chocolate chips around the house for moments like these. You know, when your worm needs eyes. Still missing something...

    Giant caterpillar on it's way to get into your mouth. I think it's still missing something.

    Yes, this dude needs some fuzzy hair and shredded coconut was the perfect ingredient.

    It's cute and creepy and delicious all in one.

All you need is…

A banana

some pretzels

2 mini chocolate chips

Slice the banana and spread peanut butter between each slice. Break pretzel stick in half and stick into each banana slice. Place mini chips onto the head for eyes and sprinkle with coconut. Serve!
