Think about swapping out raw fish for bananas next time you think about making homemade sushi rolls. These Banana Sushi Rolls are aesthetically pleasing and can be customized to your liking.

Maybe they aren't totally in the sushi family, but the look of them fits right in! Perfect for snacking or for serving up as an appetizer to hold your crowd over until the main event. Thankfully, bananas dipped in a nut butter (peanut, almond, cashew butter), is a combination that will never get old. These little banana sushi-like bites are also rolled in rice crispy cereal, which gives them a texture similar to a crispy tempura roll. An entertaining activity in the kitchen and delish richness on your taste buds, what else could you ask for?
