Watching What We Eat Wednesday #4

I have family in town, so this is short and sweet. Hopefully you all like this recipe. It seems to be a perfect treat to sit and munch on outside while on a picnic. It's really simple and so refreshing. The best part is it's guilt free! 

Banana Pops (2 WW pts)

2 medium bananas, peeled and halved crosswise

1/4 cup crisp rice cereal

1 tablespoon toasted chopped coconut

1 tablespoon finely chopped peanuts

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, ground cinnamon, or apple pie spice

2 teaspoons maple-flavored syrup

-Insert a wooden stick *into the cut end of each banana half. Place on a baking sheet. Freeze 1 hour or till bananas are firm.

-Meanwhile, in a shallow dish mix cereal, coconut, peanuts, and nutmeg. Brush frozen bananas with syrup, then roll in cereal mixture to coat.

-Wrap each pop individually in plastic wrap; return to freezer. Freeze 2 hours more or till completely frozen.  

-Serves 4.

*NOTE- If desired, substitute plastic forks or knives for the wooden sticks :)
