No More Bruised Bananas {Simple Solutions}

What the most perfect snack. It comes in its own wrapper, requires no silverware, and tastes oh so delish. 

Our family loves bananas. They are great on road trips (probably the cheapest gas station snack), in lunches, for breakfasts, and in banana bread. 

But how to tote it around without those nasty slimy bruises?

Well, when trying to throw together a healthy lunch this morning I had an idea... oven mit!

It's the perfect size, it's something we already have, and it is cushioned enough to keep the banana from getting banged up in my lunch sack. Yay! Problem solved. One of those "why have I never thought of that before?" moments!

Those brown spots on the banana aren't bruises, it's the freckles of a super sweetly ripe banana!! My favorite kind....mmmmm...
Now I think I might create quilted banana cozy's for Christmas gifts. I have so much sewing to do :)

      I've got all sorts of creative ideas rolling around in my head on how to make a cute quilted banana cozy now.

  2. What a great idea! You could patent it ;-) I may need to make a banana cozy or two myself as I like to throw one in the backpack for my son when we go out for the day but by afternoon nobody wants to eat it!

    1. The same happens to us all the time! Good intentions to eat healthy, but yuck, no one likes banana mush (well, except for the baby!)
      Thanks for stopping by :)
