If there’s one all time loved recipe on Weelicious it’s Banana Dog Bites. I think I first made these 6 or 7 years ago and they’re still an all time classic. What’s not to love about a recipe that only uses 3 ingredients, take 2 minutes or less to prepare and looks like such fun. If you’ve never tried them before you have to watch this Banana Dog Bites video. I promise it has all kinds of little tips for making the perfect lunch time treat every time!

Even though there are only three ingredients, there’s tons of variations you can use. I like using spelt or half whole wheat half corn tortillas I get at Trader Joes, but you can also use all white flour tortillas or something with seeds inside. The most important part is getting something that’s really flexible. Corn could work, but they would need to be really fresh. Using lavash is a fun idea too!

There’s also plenty of variations with nut butters. You can use peanut, almond, cashew, soy or sun butter. You could also use whipped cream cheese in a pinch. If you’re using large tortillas and bananas it makes about 8-10 pieces which look super cute in a bento style lunchbox. Serve these with some raw veggies and maybe a little snack like a Vegan Cowgirl Cookie or Heart Crispy Treat and you’ve got a vegetarian meal I’m betting your kids will love!

  1. I make these all the time for my own lunch. (I don’t slice them up, Just cut in half). I use chunky peanut butter and add chocolate chips. Sometimes I put it on the griddle to brown and melt the chips. Yummy and filling.

  2. I make these all the time! If you want to add some crunch to it, sunflower seeds (without the shell) make a great addition!
