GO BANANAS FOR BREAKFAST
Have a breakfast mini-celebration by serving these delicious and nutritious frozen banana pops.
Take 2 bananas and cut them in half, leaving the banana skins intact (horizontal cut, not vertical).
Slide a popsicle stick into each half and peel away the skin.  Freeze the bananas until they are hard, or at least 1 hour.
Pour your favorite granola, chopped nuts, or cereal (cheerios) onto a plate or small bowl.  
In a separate bowl, combine 1/2 cup of chocolate chips and 1 1/2 teaspoons of vegetable oil and microwave the mixture in 10 second bursts until its fully melted, stirring between bursts.
Transfer the mixture to a tall heat-safe glass.  Working quickly, dip a banana into the mixture, then roll it in the granola, nuts or cereal.  Repeat with the other bananas.  Then return them to the freezer until they are ready to eat.  Makes a great treat!
