Ingredients

  • FOR THE CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER SPREAD:
  • 1/2 cup Sprouts peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp Sprouts honey
  • OTHER INGREDIENTS:
  • 10-12 Sprouts Organic Brown Rice cakes
  • 1/3 cup Sprouts Peanut Butter
  • additional honey to drizzle if desired
  • 1 banana thinly sliced
  • 1 apple thinly sliced in circles, then cut in half
  • handful blueberries
  • handful baking chips of choice vegan if needed
  • handful cashews
  • dried fruit optional

Instructions

  • Mix your chocolate peanut butter spread by combing 1/2 cup Sprouts peanut butter, 2 tbsp cocoa powder and 2 tbsp Sprouts honey in a small bowl. Mix until a smooth consistency is reached and cocoa powder is all mixed in.
  • To assembly animal faces, line up rice cakes, then chose your base spread. I used the chocolate peanut butter spread for the monkeys and one fish, then used the regular peanut butter for the dogs and remaining fish.
  • FOR THE MONKEYS: Spread out your nut butter of choice, I made mine more an oval shape than completely round like the rice cake. Drizzle with a little extra honey, if desired. Then cut your banana to make the upper and lower part of the nose/snout. Finally add the cashews for ears.
  • FOR THE FISH: Spread out your nutter butter of choice over the whole rice cake, drizzle with a little extra honey, if desired. Then cut a small triangle out of a couple of the banana circles to make the back fin. Put that on the far side of the rice cake, slightly hanging off, then layer 3-4 round banana slices to create the scales. Finally select a small blueberry for the eye and a piece of dried from for the mouth or a little apple slice.
  • FOR THE DOG: Spread out your nutter butter of choice over the whole rice cake, again, drizzle extra honey if desired, then use the thinly sliced, half circle apples to create the dog ears. Use small blueberries for the eyes, then a banana slice and blueberry for the mouth/nose.
  • Now watch your little ones delight in their fun, tasty little snacks!

Notes

  • You can easily purchase chocolate peanut butter rather than making your own, or substitute with Nutella.
  • Store any remaining chocolate peanut butter spread in the refrigerator in air tight container. Allow to come to room temperature to spread.
