I’m still trying to come up with easy breakfast options for my kids that I can make really quickly in the morning. Although they love cereal even they get bored with it. Croissants are certainly yummy on their own but I like to add a little something to them so that they are a little more hardy.

Now I’ve mentioned before like with the Banana Cranberry Muffins how only half my family likes banana but everyone here loves peanut butter! These whip up super fast because there’s really no prep work other than slicing the bananas.

Some other tasty peanut butter breakfast options are these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Sheet Pan Pancakes or this Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oatmeal.

Ingredients

  • Canned crescent rolls
  • Peanut butter
  • Banana

Substitutions:

You could try making this with berries for a peanut butter and jelly feel. Make sure to allow a few minutes for the berries to cool because they will be very hot after baking.

Top Tips

I sliced the bananas down the middle first and then cut those halves into halves to give myself quarters that were just about perfect width for the croissants they were on. Honestly, I wouldn’t do an entire half of a banana because the first time I tried to make these doing it that way it was a lot of banana to everything else ratio. But if you REALLY love banana go for it and let me know how you like it.

Variations

My son was asking me if I could make these like I did the Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Croissants because his favorite smoothie is Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana. I’m sure it would be really yummy too and would be easy enough to add a square of chocolate on top of the peanut butter and before the banana.
