School has started back for many (us included!), and today's Kid's in the Kitchen recipe makes for a perfect breakfast or after-school snack. We made ours for an after-school snack the other day and my second grader loved it. We call this recipe Mini Banana Waffle Pies With Peanut Butter Dipping Sauce and we think your kids will love it.

We made Mini Banana Waffle Pies with Peanut Butter Dipping Sauce - and we made them with canned biscuits! Yes canned biscuits. Yes, we named them waffle pies. Yes, you'll love them!
My daughter named them "waffle pies" since she excitedly said they were like little pies. We paired two classics together, banana and peanut butter in these cute little mini biscuit waffles.
Mini Banana Waffle Pies
- Honey flavored biscuits in a can
- Peanut Butter
Special tools: waffle iron
- Cut each biscuit into 4 pieces.
- Cut each 1/4 in half horizontally.
- With your fingertips flatten the pieces until they are bigger than a slice of banana.
- Sandwich the banana in between the 2 flattened pieces and pinch well around the edges.
- Cook in lightly sprayed waffle iron for 2 minutes.
- Let cool and serve with peanut butter and honey dipping sauce.
How to Host a Gingerbread-House Decorating Playdate
Decorating a gingerbread house is one of my children's favorite holiday traditions. I, on the other hand, have never been a huge fan. First, there's all the sugar and candy and frosting and dye. Then there's the fact that the traditional kits are nearly impossible to complete. ...read more

For this after-school snack, I did most of the cutting and flattening of the biscuits. My little sous chef did the stuffing and pinching the bananas into the little pockets.
We used a fork to help crimp the sides together and then sort of smoothed them back out with our fingers before popping them in the waffle iron.
We worked together to create this quick and yummy snack. We have a mini (half) waffle maker so we only made 2 mini waffle pies at a time but if you have a bigger waffle maker it would be even faster.
We mixed in a little dollop of honey with our peanut butter just to make it easier for dipping and to add an extra layer of flavor in with the peanut butter. We used our favorite local honey from our last farmer's market trip.
These Mini Banana Waffle Pies were such a hit! A comforting after school snack on a rainy day. It's always great to think something up and have it work out well and taste delicious!
