Well I think Elvis would have been mighty happy with this healthy cereal as peanut butter and bananas was one of his favorite sandwiches. This Nutty Banana Crunch Cereal really fits the flavor profile.
I love the combination of peanut butter and bananas myself and this cereal packs a great flavor combination as well as curbs that crunchy cereal craving I get oh so often.
I’ve been restocking my cereal supply because I will be making a trip to the Louisville Kentucky area to see my mom. Many of the ladies from the Trim Healthy Mama community are aware that she is in end of life after battling type 1 diabetes for over 50 years (also strokes and dementia). I need to go say my good bye, as painful as that may be. I want to say thank you to all that have been holding us in prayer, this is far more difficult than I could have ever imagined.
Having something on plan to take with me is important. These cereals are a good treat and they work for busy days as well.
l use this cereal as a snack when I am traveling. They shouldn’t take the place of your other S or E meals every morning, but they do allow a chance to change things up a bit.
Quiet mornings without the blender running or a quick snack in the afternoon this cereal hits the spot. For other ladies following the Trim Healthy Mama Lifestyle this is an S cereal which means that it is satisfying in oh so many ways. It is sugar free and low carb.
I combined a full batch of Peanut Butter Crunch with the Nutty Banana Crunch listed below. Baking them separately and allowing them to cool before combining.
I love to eat these as a cold cereal with almond milk or to mix them into greek yogurt, a Fat Stripping Frappe or the Choco Pudding from the Trim Healthy Mama book. They add a wonderful texture and makes a great snack/meal even better. You can eat them with a side of berries or even top your cereal with the berries.

- ½ tsp baking powder
- ¼ cup coconut oil
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
- Combine sweetener, ground almonds, protein powder, baking powder and extract in a small bowl. Cut in the coconut oil with a fork until mixture resembles coarse meal, like butter crumble.
- Place on a cookie sheet with defined edges or the coconut oil will leak off.
- Bake for 12-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and gently stir while still hot.
- Let cool on the cookie sheet (it will crisp up A LOT as it cools).
