Cooking With Kids in the Kitchen: Peanut Butter Banana Energy Bites

Alyssa is participating in the My Kid Made This Challenge. The older my daughter gets the more interested she is in learning how to cook and bake. I bought her a child's apron for Christmas so now we have matching aprons. I try to get her involved in the kitchen as much as possible. I started teaching her the basics many years ago.

Here are a few pictures of her making a no-bake recipe by herself this time. We found a Peanut Butter Banana Energy Bite recipe for Alyssa to try. Unfortunately, I can't find the original recipe. It is very familiar to the Energy Bite recipe we make all the time except this one adds in banana. We also had a few ripe bananas that needed to be used up. My daughter really liked them. I did notice that because SHE made them, she took pride in her work and ate them more often than the ones we make together.

Peanut Butter Banana Bite Recipe
1 Tablespoon Flaxseed
1 Ripe Banana
2 Cups Old Fashion Oats
1 Cup Smooth Peanut Butter
1/4 Cup Honey
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1/4 Cup Raisins

Note: She substituted mini chocolate chips for the raisins. She also used less vanilla (1/2 tsp), because our was double strength. They were placed in the refrigerator once rolled into 1" balls.
