Breakfast Banana Split

Breakfast Banana Split- healthy and satisfying!
Growing up, we always had a family breakfast before school. My job was set the table for the family. My mom always made a variety of different breakfast options. Rarely did we ever have cold cereal for breakfast, maybe once a week at the most.

My mom always thought of something different to make: cream of wheat with peanut butter, eggs, toast with banana/peanut butter/honey, bagels, etc. etc. We ate quite a diverse diet in the mornings (as well as other meals).

For those who have children who are headed back to school, this recipe is for you. This is for the days when you have a few extra minutes to prep breakfast. For the days that you want to do something besides cereal or toast.

These healthy breakfast banana splits can even be made the night before. I made mine for the blog, took my photos, tasted it and then put the rest away for breakfast the next day. It was just as good as the afternoon before!

I am really excited about this recipe because it was extremely tasty and not hard to make. I think that it looks pretty impressive too. It would also make a great after school snack for your kids.

With the addition of Greek yogurt and milk, this recipe has a boost of protein to help keep you full through the morning along with calcium and vitamin D. The banana, strawberries and walnuts provide fiber, vitamins and minerals. The peanut butter and walnuts give a boost of protein and healthy fats.
