If your kid is obsessed with chocolate-covered frozen bananas, he'll love our healthful approach to this glorious duo. Easier to make than banana bread, these are addictive either hot or cold, for breakfast or dessert. Just don't forget to save one for the kids.
- Pat of butter
- One banana, thinly sliced
- Handful chocolate chips
- Two flour tortillas
- Powdered sugar for dusting (optional)
Melt butter in nonstick pan. Arrange banana slices over one tortilla and mash them in very lightly with a fork. Dot with chocolate chips and place second tortilla on top. Slide into frying pan and cook for a few minutes on each side, until brown and golden at the edges. Let cool for a minute or two, then slice into wedges and serve dusted with powdered sugar, if desired.
Kids can help: Peel banana, spread banana slices on tortilla, lightly mash bananas, arrange chocolate chips over fruit
