Breakfast Banana Split!

I am kinda stuck on breakfast these days.  Last week it was oatmeal...this week Banana Splits.  YUM!  This is a fast, YUMMY, and good for you breakfast, despite the name.  Actually, I really like these cause I feel like I am being "bad" when I eat them even though I'm not.  So this is how it goes.  This is for one serving...

You need:
banana (split length-wise as in a banana split)
peanut butter
yogurt (we use Dannon lowfat Vanilla)
grapenuts (opt)
other fresh fruit (opt)

So put your split banana in a bowl (I have to break them in half so they fit).  Smear each banana slice with peanut butter.*  Put your serving of yogurt on top of banana (we use vanilla but you could use any kind you like).  The kids like grape nuts on top for "crunchies" and sometimes we dump on fresh blueberries or sliced strawberries.  That's it.  Hardly a recipe really.  But it doesn't make it any less good. 

*Instead of smearing peanut butter on the banana which is, admittedly, a pain in the neck, you can stick the peanut butter in the microwave for a few seconds (watch it closely) and drizzle the melted peanut butter over the whole thing.  YUM!!!  If you are working on your momma of the year award, add some choc chips to the peanut butter before you melt it...I don't often do that.  At least not in the kids bowls.  :)
