Peanut butter owls

A cute snack!

Peanut butter owls

Method

Lay out rice cakes on a baking tray (this will keep the mess in one area).
Slice banana and set aside.
Spread peanut butter over each rice cake (warm it up slightly if it's hard to spread) and then place 2 slices of banana towards the upper part of each of the rice cakes. This will serve as your owl's eyes. Dab a small amount of peanut butter on the center of the owls eyes and add a blueberry for the pupil of the eye.
Slice apple in half and then slice the halves into very thin wedges (2-3mm thick). Place 2 onto each rice cake, (peel side outward) to serve as the owl's wings.
Peel carrot and slice thinly. Using 4 slices, cut into triangles for the nose.
Finally, use carrot triangles or banana semi-cricles for feathers between the wings.

Tips

Other ideas for the wings include: strawberries, peaches, kiwifruit (depending on what’s in season).

To make this recipe nut free, you could replace the peanut butter with cottage cheese.
