Believe it or not it’s an actual thing!
In honor of the holiday I decided to create my very own animal-cracker including recipe! The combination of animal cracker + banana + chocolate chip will have you feeling like a kid again in no time!
Besides animal crackers, another thing I love are short ingredients list and this recipe has just that: animal crackers, banana, nuts, chocolate. That’s it!
STEP 1: Add 2 cups of animal crackers to a food processor and blend into crumbs.
STEP 2: Add 2 overly ripe bananas and mix thoroughly. Roll into balls (I had enough for 7).
STEP 3: Prepare coating by combining additional animal crackers with 1/4 cup pecans (or any other nut) and 1TBSP dark chocolate chips. Pulse to blend.
STEP 4: Roll balls into coating and place onto cookie sheet.
STEP 5: Bake at 375 for ~10-15 minutes. Let cool. Eat!
