Two Treats That are Fun to Eat!

Four-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies


1 cup peanut butter

1 cup sugar

1 large egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1.Be sure to have an adult help you while in the kitchen. This recipe is easy for you to do, but working around hot surfaces like ovens can be dangerous.

2.Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

3. Stir together all your

   ingredients until a nice dough is formed.

4. Scoop out dough and form into 1-inch balls.

5. Place on ungreased baking sheets, one inch apart, and flatten gently with a fork two directions to get a crosshatch pattern.

5.Bake for 15 minutes or until golden. 

 Allow to cool before you eat them!


Banana "Nice" Cream

(an Allergy-Friendly Treat)


4 very ripe bananas (the more spots, the better).



A food processor or high-speed blender (Remember to always have an adult help you in the kitchen.)


1.Cut the bananas into coin shapes and place on a baking sheet or in large plastic freezer bag. If using the bag, spread out the coins so they aren’t clumping together and seal the bag so it’s flat.

2.Freeze overnight.

3. Set up your food processer and place your frozen bananas in it. Close it up carefully and turn it on. Whiz the banana (stopping to scrape down the sides), until it makes a soft-serve ice-cream consistency. When it’s smooth and creamy, you can eat it! Or if you’d prefer to have it set up a bit more, scoop it into a freezer-safe container and freeze for a few hours. Use it just like any other kind of ice cream—in a sundae, with toppings, or plain!
