Monkey Treats: Healthy Crunchy Granola Banana and Chocolate Chips on a Stick Recipe

Monkeys' love them! How to make a healthy banana snack for kids.

We found this fun Monkey Treat or Banana on a stick recipe in an old, kid's cookbook from the 1970's, but they used Mayo as the glue and other yucky stuff. We prefer vanilla yogurt and granola for a healthy snack for kids.

  1. Yes! Just place them in individual baggies - Frozen Banana Pops - even better!

  2. I've seen those before. My kids like bananas, but I'm still not sure they would eat them like that.

  3. My son doesn't like bananas and he eats these. I found an old recipe from the 1970's that used mayo to attach granola cereal and searched fro alternative - he wouldn't eat a mayo covered banana for sure :-)

  4. This looks yummy. My son loves Curious George and I bet he would love this treat too.

  5. @JDaniel4's Mom - Yes, I forgot that part wasn't mentioned we read a pre-school book about Monkey's and counting. I'll go look it up and list the title here later - it is great for pre-schoolers. I did these at Summer Camp too. I bet my after-schoolers would have fun with this - I think I'll add that to the agenda!
