Banana Jungle Pops

Quincy L. Cheek, Bollich, Patricia A.

Banana pops are nice nutritional snacks for kids and grown-ups alike.

6 whole bananas
¾ cup peanut butter (creamy or chunky)
¾ cup chocolate chips
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 cups crushed crisp rice cereal


1. Peel and cut bananas in half, crosswise. Insert wooden skewer or popsicle stick in cut ends. On a baking sheet lined with waxed paper, place bananas and freeze until firm (about 2 hours).

2. Melt peanut butter, chips and oil in a tall, narrow glass in microwave (1 to 2 minutes), stirring after each minute of cooking. Spread crushed cereal on waxed paper.

3. Dip each frozen banana in chocolate mixture, coating evenly, and immediately roll in crushed cereal. Freeze again for about 30 minutes before eating. For longer storage, wrap each banana in aluminum foil.
