    A Messy Cook's Note:

    A delicious, healthy (pretty much), easier-than-pie snack I invented one night when I had the munchies. Opportunities for variation are endless...

      DD1 (5 years old) rates this yummy.It is quite messy even with regular size organic bananas cut in half first. I found this a nice change from my usual apple paring with nut butter but I still prefer apples with it (I don`t love apples or bananas BTW). I used oalmond hazelnut butter (my favorite right now) by Nut`s to You, and Qia cereal by Nature`s Path as the granola, since we do not eat oats because of there similarity with gluten. Made for FEBRUARY'S SUN and SPICE EVENT, PRIME INGREDIENT CHALLENGE: Nut Butter.

      I tried the original recipe and several of your alternate variations. The dulce de leche was my favorite spread, so that is what I am rating this on (I liked the peanut butter the least). All of the toppings were good with the dulce de leche, including the granola, which gave it a nice crunch.
