Here is what you will need
Banana sushi rolls can be made in just minutes. All that has to be done is cut the bananas in half and slather them with peanut buter and set them aside. Chop the walnuts and chocolate and mix them together with the coconut shreds. Roll each banana in the nut mixture and cut them into slices.
- Spreading the peanut butter onto the banana can be messy, it helps to stand the banana up on the cut (flat end) to make spreading the peanut butter easier.
- Use a banana that is just turning ripe, an overly ripe banana will be too soft to work with when spreading on the peanut butter.
