How to Make Breakfast Banana Skewers

Banana Skewer Ingredients: 

  • 1 banana, cut in half
  • 2 tablespoons Fruity Pebbles Cereal
  • 2 tablespoons honey yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons Nutella or chocolate sauce
  • 2 tablespoons caramel sauce
  • 2 Bamboo skewers

Banana Skewer Ingredients

My boys and I had so much fun making Omni Hotels & Resorts Banana Skewers Culinary Kids breakfast recipe. It was so easy to make, with less than 5 minutes prep, and is a perfect breakfast option for any day of the week.

I started cutting the bananas in half right in the peel. From there, my boys did the rest of the work, with a little help on my part telling them each step of the process. My 4 year old needed help with the skewers, but my 8, 10, and 12 year old boys wanted to do all the steps on their own. 

First, you’ll run a bamboo skewer through the center of your banana from the cut middle to the tip. 

After that, we brushed on a thin layer of yogurt to the outside of each banana skewer. We dipped our bananas in the yogurt, then used a butter knife to spread the yogurt coating evenly and make sure we didn’t have too much yogurt on the bananas. 

After that, it was time to put the banana skewers in a shallow bowl of Fruity Pebbles! This was their very favorite step. The rolled a little, but mostly just scooped up the Fruity Pebbles and sprinkled them all over the banana.

We pulled out Nutella to serve with the Banana Skewers, my boys favorite topping, and extra Fruity Pebbles and all that was left to do was enjoy! 

These Banana Skewers definitely made for a fun, and filling, breakfast that my kids are already asking for again!

Common Questions About Making Banana Skewers: 

 

Q: Can I freeze Banana Skewers? 

A: Yes, you can freeze banana skewers!

Bananas, yogurts, and even the fruity pebble outer shell will all freeze great. Keep in mind, bananas may discolor some while in the freezer, but will still taste fresh and delicious! Freezing your breakfast banana skewers can easily transform them into a healthy summertime dessert! Freeze in a lidded freezer-safe dish with the skewers spaced apart. After frozen, you can transfer the banana skewers to a freezer bag.

Q: What cereal do you use when making Banana Skewers? 

A: Fruity Pebbles is our first choice when making Banana Skewers.

We love using Fruity Pebbles because they are colorful, small which makes them easier to pack onto the bananas, and pack a lot of flavor! However, you could mix and match and try other cereal varieties to make your own custom Banana Skewers! Try Fruit Loops, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, or Cheerios for some variety, or youw own favorite cereal. 

You can also try a variety of other outer coatings such as granola, oatmeal, chocolate chips, graham cracker crumbs, or crushed cookie crumbles!

Q: What dipping sides are best with Banana Skewers? 

A: Try dipping your Banana Skewers in chocolate sauce, Nutella, or Caramel sauce!

For more fun variety, try dipping your Banana Skewers in peanut butter, your favorite jam or jelly, whipped topping, greek yogurt, or honey.

I love playing with food! Super cute idea, and really, what kid can resist food on a stick? I know mine can’t - even with an almost 14 year old in the house - if it’s on a stick she won’t complain!
