Chocolate Banana Pops
This was another internet find. So simple, yet worth fighting over. Gotta love kids. In addition to bananas, you could make pops out of kiwi, strawberries, mango, and more. Whatever your kids (or adults) will eat with chocolate will do.

Banana Walnut Chocolate Chip Muffins
It was late one night, and I didn’t have a plan for breakfast. I know, that’s totally out of character for me. It’s just that, things have been so busy around here lately. So rather than get sleep, I decided to prepare a quick muffin batter. Back when we were getting ready for the Maker Faire, I wanted to have a banana muffin to sell at the event, but I wasn’t able to nail down time to create anything. Now that I needed to have a breakfast for the kdis, this was my golden opportunity.
A little note. I baked a test muffin and had The Papa try it, yes, in the middle of the night. The baking time was 18 minutes, but it was a little dry, and 15 – 17 minutes may have done the trick. I put the batter in the fridge, and went to bed. However, the baking time changed once the batter was being cooked from cold. I share this with you so you’ll know why there’s variation, and you’ll know how to plan your baking.

A Fun Banana Topping
I’ve been wanting to create something fun like a “semi-fried” banana for a while now. I started with Fried Banana Balls, a recipe that’s now in the try again pile. Then I tried straight banana, and hit the mark. These came together quick, and the kids really liked them. Kid Three wanted to keep eating them, and didn’t want to share them with his siblings.
