Breakfast Banana Pops

These easy-to-make breakfast banana pops are like summer on a popsicle stick!

Breakfast Banana Pops - Easy snack idea for summer, from @choccoveredkt... Ingredients: 4 peeled bananas, popsicle sticks, 3 tbsp chocolate chips, 1/2 cup... Full recipe: https://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2012/06/20/breakfast-banana-pops/

It’s a super-kid-friendly recipe as well.

When I was little, we’d make these “nana pops” weekly during the summer months, rolling the bananas in anything from cinnamon and sugar, to granola and raising, to crushed chocolate chip cookies! The recipe is also great for people who hate to cook – it’s pretty much foolproof!

If you’re anything like me, or if your weather is anything like the weather in Texas, you cringe at the thought of heating up the oven when it’s so hot outside. That’s why I’ve been focusing so much on the no-bake recipes lately. For more no-bake healthy snacks:

These banana pops are great for snack or as part of breakfast.

For a balanced breakfast, especially good for cooling off after a hot morning workout, I recommend serving with something savory, such as one of my favorite recipes: Eggless Breakfast Scramble.

Did you like helping out in the kitchen as a kid?

I especially liked doing dishes! 🙂

I also rolled cookies (and ate the dough), stirred ingredients, peeled carrots… and my sister and I would always fight over who got to mash potatoes. But mostly… I liked eating the cookie dough. Big help I was.

 pin-itBreakfast Banana Pops

(2 bananas makes 4 pops)

  • bananas (Or try this idea with strawberries, pineapple, etc.)
  • yogurt of choice (Wholesoy, Almond Dream, Silk, etc.)
  • granola of choice, or crushed cookies or Healthy Graham Crackers
  • add-on ideas: mini chocolate chips, coconut shreds, cinnamon sugar, raisins, etc.
  • popsicle sticks or silverware to insert in the bananas

Procedure: Pour granola into a very shallow dish or plate. Peel bananas, cut in half, and insert popsicle sticks. Dip into yogurt (or coat with a knife), then roll into granola and add-ons. (I stuck the chips on by hand, after rolling in the granola.) Place on a parchment or wax-lined tray and freeze. Keep uneaten pops in the freezer.

      Yes, someone else told me this yesterday. I didn’t know about her post when I posted mine. Sarah is a good friend of mine, so obviously I wouldn’t have taken her idea knowingly (especially since it’s a little embarrassing that I posted so soon after her!).

    Frozen bananas? Sounds yummy! Mango has the same creamy texture when you freeze them too…or maybe that’s peaches, haha

    I was the same when I was younger. Whenever my mom let me wash dishes I was always eager to do it. It was the same with eating the cake batter left in the bowl. Yum! My mother would be sure to scrape out as much as possible and then me and my brother would attack the bowl. 😀

  2. Kelly says

    Katie, thank you so much for this awesome idea! I coach swim team early in the mornings and I am always looking for convenient (and healthy) snacks to take with me for breakfast! I made these today and it was so much fun. I love them!

  3. Hazyy says

    Katie thank you for this idea!
    I modified it, I cut the banana into small pieces (1/2 – 2/3 inch each), dipped in acid soy yogurt, used homemade granola (bran, oats, sesame seeds & cereal). and then i covered them with the magic shell of hot chocolate butter artisana cacao bliss style 😉 i threw shredded coconut and sprinkles on top. then I kept them in the fridge. my 1 year old goddaughter loved them!

    I also used the hot chocolate butter for a mint-chocolate dessert I made with tofu and banana 🙂
    thanks again! I am happy I could give to my very good friend and her daughter (my goddaughter) completely vegan yummy food :)!

    Hey Katie,
    I just wanted to tell you that I am working at a weight loss camp for teenagers over the summer and culinary/nutrition classes are going to be offered to the campers. We are using the banana pop recipe as a dessert for the kids. They will be able to make the dessert and then enjoy them.
    Thank you for the great recipes. Keep them coming please!

  5. mamak says

    awesome! My boys love frozen nanas. Sometimes I coat w/ a little honey and roll in coconut, but I love the yogurt/granola idea. Great way to use up the little bit of leftover granola or cereal.

  6. Dallas says

    i LOVE this site!! i come on at least five times a week to check out your original, HEALTHY, fun recipes. i think i’m going to be in the kitchen EVERY DAY this summer, trying out all of these mouth watering foods.
    just one question – my mom doesnt really like me using the blender/food processor (it’s messy and hard to clean). is there any way to make your blender needed recipes without one?
    or am i gonna have to toughen up, make the delicious food and deal with cleaning my mess?
    😉 thanks again for sharing your talent!
    -Dallas

      I don’t think you can do a lot of the recipes without a blender or food processor, but if you use a Magic Bullet, I think the cups are dishwasher safe! A blender is definitely easier to clean than a food processor, if you have to choose… I usually run mine briefly with some water after making something and rinse right away to keep things from sticking and drying on before I can properly wash it. The recipes with all soft ingredients (nut butters, oatmeal pudding, fudge) you can usually get away with just mashing and stirring to combine. Hope that helps!

    I used to make banana pops for my kids when they were young, but I frozen them then dipped them in melted dark chocolate and sometimes chopped pecans. They were a real hit, and a healthy one, too. I think I’ll have to do that again soon…….thanks for the reminder!

  8. Alanna says

    I liked helping in the kitchen only when helping meant taste-testing, lol. My brother and I used to take turns doing the dishes, and I hated it because someone would always dump coffee grounds in the sink and they’d get all over the rest of the dishes. That and no one pre-rinsed! I don’t mind as much now because I’m kinda OCD and try to pre-clean as much as possible (and it’s just me, so not too many dishes unless I’m on a cooking/baking spree).

    These sound fun and yummy! I need to try once I have more yogurt on hand. I’m guessing it’d work better with bananas that are not fully ripe? Seems like if they’re too soft they might fall off the stick. I think I found an excuse to try your magic shell! 🙂

  9. Lynne says

    This idea would be great also using peanut butter or soy butter as the ” glue”. My little guy can’t have dairy so…

  10. Brenda says

    Hi, i would like to share and translate your banana idea on my blog, is that ok? Of course i will share your post as a link.
    Regards, Brenda (from Holland)

  11. Michelle says

    WOW what a great idea!! I am going to try these out today and share them on my blog if that’s ok 🙂
