Gluten-Free Vegan Raw Banana Hemp Seed Sushi Slices
Here’s why this recipe works – my top 3 reasons:
- Ready in under 5 minutes
- Made with only 3 clean, real food ingredients
Banana sushi is one of my boys’ favorite afternoon snacks.
It’s also 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.
These Vegan Banana Hemp Seed Sushi Slices are going to be one of the easiest snacks you’ll probably ever make.
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.
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.
