Raw Vegan Banana Hemp Seed Sushi Slices

Banana Hemp Seed Sushi | thehealthyfamilyandhome.com

These Vegan Banana Hemp Seed Sushi Slices are going to be one of the easiest snacks you’ll probably ever make.

It’s also one of my boys favorite snacks and the kind of snack a mother thinks of in the spur of the moment when it’s snack time and you need to be creative.

A simple banana, peanut butter (or your favorite nut butter) and hemp seeds.

They love them because the are shaped like real sushi slices, which they also happen to absolutely love.

The first time I made them, one of my boys said, “Mom, these look like sushi”.

And…that’s how we started calling them “banana sushi”.

You can make them in a matter of minutes and they provide lots of nutrition and energy in a bite-sized snack.

I used organic peanut butter, and technically peanut butter isn’t “raw” or paleo, but you could also just use almond butter or your favorite nut butter.

Stay tuned because we also make them with almond butter and I’ll share that variety with you too!

We eat so many hemp seeds that I buy the Nutiva brand in bulk in a 3 pound bag.

I keep what we use on a daily basis in a glass mason jar with a BPA-free lid and store the rest in the freezer.

Hemps seeds are really amazing…they contain 11 g of raw vegan protein, 25% DV of zinc, 50% DV of magnesium, 50% DV of phosphorus and 15% DV of iron.

I love to add them to smoothies, raw desserts and try to sprinkle them on whatever I can, especially salads.

    I do a similar recipe to this one.
    Whole wheat wrap, spread sunflower seed butter on it (because peanut butter is not allowed at school), sprinkle with hemp seeds and additional sunflower seeds, one banana and roll it up! Great for a school lunch.

    • Karielyn says

      Hi Colleen! I love your idea of adding the additional sunflower seeds…we use those a lot too!

      My boys like tortilla wraps so I might try your version next time, I know they would love it.

      Thanks for sharing and stopping by :)

    Oh, yummy! I got all excited at “sushi” and was a bit disappointed when no rice appeared, and to find they’re just banana slices. The boys misled me 😉

    • Karielyn says

      Hi there…yes, I personally would have just called them “banana slices” but my boy’s call them “banana sushi” because they’re like the sushi slices we make at home…with rice, which they also love btw lol!

      Sorry to get your taste buds thinking of real sushi 😉

    • Karielyn says

      Hi Lauren! Yes, they are a big hit in my house. And with me too because they are so easy to make 😉

    • Karielyn says

      Hi Casey! Thanks! Yes, these are too easy to not give them a try.

      I love the recipes on your site and I have your Honey Harvest Quinoa on my “to-make” list..it looks delish!

      Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the banana slices 😉

    • Karielyn says

      Hi Rose! Thank you! Oh my…if you haven’t tried hemp seeds yet, you must! They are so good for you and very versatile.

      You have to let me know once you try them 😉

    • Karielyn says

      Hi there Andy! That would be organic hemp seeds that I added for extra nutrition. You can omit them if you’d like and/or add another topping that you prefer.

      Thanks for your question 😉
