Banana Sushi

Breakfast for Gulten Free Champions

As a food enthusiast and a proud parent, I'm always on the lookout for delightful breakfast options that cater to my 13-year-old daughter's dietary needs. She happens to be a Celiac warrior, which means we're constantly exploring gluten-free alternatives that don't compromise on taste. Today, I'm excited to share with you her absolute favorite morning treat: Waffles and Banana Sushi.

The Ingredients

Before we dive into the recipe, let's gather our star players:

  1. Van's Frozen Gluten-Free Waffles: These waffles are a game-changer for anyone avoiding gluten. They're crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside, and perfect for our breakfast adventure.

  2. Bananas: Nature's sweet gift! Bananas add natural sweetness, potassium, and a touch of whimsy to our dish.

  3. Nutella: The hazelnut spread that dreams are made of. Creamy, chocolatey, and oh-so-indulgent.

  4. Sprinkles: Because life is too short for boring breakfasts. Sprinkles add a pop of color and a dash of joy.

The Recipe: Waffles and Banana Sushi

Step 1: Toast Those Waffles

  1. Pop two Van's Frozen Gluten-Free Waffles into the toaster. Watch them transform into golden perfection. The aroma alone will make your kitchen feel like a cozy breakfast haven.

Step 2: Banana Magic

  1. Slice a ripe banana into thin rounds. Imagine these as our sushi rolls--minus the seaweed and soy sauce.

Step 3: Nutella Drizzle

  1. Warm up a spoonful of Nutella (because warm Nutella is life). Drizzle it generously over your toasted waffles. Let it ooze into every nook and cranny.

Step 4: Sprinkle Extravaganza

  1. Now for the pi?ce de r?sistance: SPRINKLES! Shower your banana sushi with colorful sprinkles. They'll cling to the Nutella and bananas, creating a whimsical mosaic.

Step 5: Dive In!

  1. Grab your fork (or chopsticks, if you're feeling fancy) and dig into your Banana Sushi Waffles. The crispy waffle base, the creamy Nutella, the sweet bananas, and the playful sprinkles--it's a symphony of flavors.

Why We Love It

  • Gluten-Free Bliss: Thanks to Van's waffles, my daughter can enjoy a gluten-free breakfast without compromising on taste or texture.

  • Kid-Approved: The combination of waffles, bananas, Nutella, and sprinkles is like a party in her mouth. Plus, it's fun to eat--perfect for busy school mornings.

This series of posts will cover some tips and tricks that I have learned about my twelve-year-old daughter's gluten-free lifestyle in the Boston area. Gluten-free eating can be challenging in any big city, but especially in Boston due to the high number of restaurants and availability of options. I've been learning what I can to make sure my daughter can still enjoy eating out, and I want to share what I've learned so that other families in the same situation can benefit.
