Banana Stacks for your Snack Attack!

banana stacks

Banana Stacks features two foods that, in my opinion, were designed to go together – bananas and peanut butter (or almond butter for those with peanut sensitivities). With this recipe, you get a little bit of protein mixed with carbohydrates for energy. It really is the perfect treat!

Banana Stacks

2 large ripe bananas
¼ cup almond butter or all-natural peanut butter

Peel bananas, and cut into ¼ to ½-inch slices (about 12 per banana). Spread about 1 teaspoon almond butter on half of the slices. Top with the remaining slices.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: about 4 stacks)

Recipe Notes

  • Great for an after school snack for your children.
  • Add a layer of Date Honey to each stack.
  • Sprinkle each stack with cinnamon.
  • Add chopped dates or raisins to tops of stacks.
  • Put in freezer until firm (3-4 hours) for a cool treat!

  1. Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the pictures on this blog loading?

    I’m trying to find out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.
    Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.

    • I’m not aware of anyone else having problems with the photos. Please let me know if it continues! I’m sorry you haven’t been able to see them!

    My church is going to try the Daniel Fast this month and I was trying to gather recipes to try and I came across this one which looks really good but I am having a problem finding surger free peanut butter. I read on another Daniel Fast website that you can’t have surger. I live in TN and just cannot find a name brand that has no surger. So if anyone knows any name brand that is surger free then please message me. Wish me look on the fast and Happy New year everyone.

    • Jack, Smuckers has an all-natural peanut butter that is sugar free. I’m thankful you are diving into this fast full force! God will help you. Remember Philippians 4:13! 🙂

      • Jack Stafford says:

        Okay thanks for the help and quick response. I am actually at the store now. Thanks again

    • Heather Santy says:

      Smart Balance all natural peanut butter has no sugar in it. That is what we use every year.

    And this is why I should read it before posting it. I meant to say Sugar. Sorry for the confusion

  4. Jack Stafford says:

    I found the Smuckers Natural peanut butter but it has 1G in it, is that the one you were referring to or is there another kind of Smucker’s your talking about?

  5. Jack Stafford says:

    Okay thanks.

  7. I bought some almond butter for my daniel fast for snacks. While eating and reviewing the label, it stated that it has cane sugar as an ingredient. Is this ok because its almond butter, or do I need to go get some more that has no sugar? Also, do you have any reccomendations? Today is day 1 for me, so Im starting small. Thanks!

    • Since you know it has sugar, I would set it aside until after the fast. You want to look for “raw” almond butter on the label. Maranatha sells a raw version. Also, health food stores often have a machine where you can grind your own raw almonds. That’s how I get mine. It’s also much cheaper than the jarred version. I hope that helps! May the Lord bless you abundantly as you seek Him on this fast!

  8. This is my first time on your website, I found it very exciting. My question can you use Cashews Butter instead of Amonds or Peanuts Butter?
