Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Rice Krispie Squares

Time to celebrate back-to-school season with some kid-friendly, no-bake goodness. But since we couldn’t keep our busy hands alone with the just the classic Rice Krispie treats, we threw a few extra add-ins for a scaled-up version.

Don’t worry  — we didn’t get too complicated. What we did do was add was some peanut butter and chocolate, plus some bananas to cut through the richness, and because three is never a crowd when it comes to those flavors.

So yeah, sit back, have a few bites, and go ahead — wipe your mouth on your sleeve.

  1. This is exactly the kind of fun snack kids need to eat healthy. The PB choco banana combo is great! Can adults have a bite too? 😉

  2. My 3 favorite things in one dessert?!? These will be made very soon…thanks for the awesome recipe!

  3. How do you melt a banana? It says to add everything to the pan and melt at low heat. Is there a step left out? Should the banana be sliced, pureed, mashed, in pieces, or whole for this?
