“Hey, Will, are you hungry?”
“Hungry? Yes, I hungry. What am I going to eat?”
“How about Monkey Breakfast?”
“Monkey Breakfast! Yes! I eat Monkey Breakfast!”
K, so truth be told, I didn’t really know what Monkey Breakfast was before I started making it. It just came to me as I was racking my brain for something new, different, exciting, innovative . . . that’s not too much to ask is it?
As anyone with kids can tell you, sometimes all it takes is a fun name and a different twist on things to get kids excited about eating breakfast.
Why Monkey Breakfast? Because Will is a devoted Curious George fan. Plain and simple. Toss in a few ingredients that he loves and that really go well together and presto! An easy, kid-pleasing meal.
Directions: Take one English muffin, and fork split. Toast. Spread each half with a hearty amount of peanut butter and slice one banana onto the two halves. Serve warm.
Have you made a super easy, but kid pleasing breakfast? Share!
PS This also happens to be a favorite midnight snack for Sweetnicks.
