Banana Boat Snack


This snack is super easy to put together and you + your kids will love it! I first saw peanut butter and marsh mellows used on apples when I was volunteering in high school at Vacation Bible School. I know I loved the snack as much as the kids! So, the other day when I was jonesin’ for a little sweetness, I took out a banana and put together this little number.

Banana Boat Snack


  • 1 banana
  • a few knife-fulls of peanut butter
  • 12 mini marsh mellows


1. Cut banana in half. Then, section each half into the banana’s natural thirds. Did you know a banana naturally wants to go into thirds? No? Go grab a banana right now!


2. Using 2 sections each, create 3 little banana boats.

3. Slather on a bit of peanut butter between two of the section and then top with 4 marsh mellows.


4. Repeat until 3 boats are created.


Quick. Simple. Cute. Yummy. Kid-friendly.

Have you ever created some type of banana boat?

    I’ve done this before, but not with marshmellows–good idea!!

  2. 3

    Yum! This reminds me of ants on a log – pb smeared on top of celery and topped with raisins. My mom used to make this ALL the time for us as kids. To this day, I LOVE it as a snack. hehe

  3. 4

    I’ve done this before with chocolate instead of marshmallows, I think it would be delicious with both!

  4. 6

    I’ll never be too old for bananas with PB. I like Michelle’s idea of using chocolate chips, too!

    …and then microwave them!!! But that’s how I roll.
