These Raw Vegan Banana Hemp Seed Sushi Slices are going to be one of the easiest snacks you’ll probably ever make.

It’s also one of my boys' favorite snacks. A simple banana, peanut butter (or your favorite nut butter), and hemp seeds. They love them because they are shaped like real sushi slices, which they also happen to absolutely love. And…they are actually the ones who came up with the name “banana sushi." They are just so darn cute too! You can make them in a matter of minutes and they provide lots of nutrition and energy in a bite-sized snack. I used organic peanut butter, but you could also just use your favorite nut butter. We eat so many hemp seeds that I buy the Nutiva brand in bulk in a 3 pound bag. I keep what we use on a daily basis in a glass mason jar with a BPA-free lid and store the rest in the freezer. Hemp seeds are really amazing.

They contain 11 g of raw vegan protein, 25 percent DV of zinc, 50 percent DV of magnesium, 50 percent DV of phosphorus, and 15 percent DV of iron.

I add them to smoothies, raw desserts and try to sprinkle them on whatever I can, especially salads.

Banana Hemp Seed Sushi Slices [Vegan]


  • 1 organic banana
  • 1 – 2 tablespoon organic peanut butter (or other nut butter)
  • 1 – 2 tablespoon organic hemp seeds


  1. Peel banana and spread peanut butter over the top half of the banana.
  2. Sprinkle hemp seeds on top and slice into bite-sized pieces.
  3. Enjoy!

do you even know what "sushi" means?

20 Feb 2014

Hi there Wut! Why of course I know what sushi is ;) If you read my little story about how we came up with the name for this snack, you would see that my two young sons started calling them "sushi" because it reminded them of real sushi, and that's what we've been calling them ever since. It's just a fun little snack with a fun name ;) Enjoy!

Omg I JUST ate this, but with coconut instead of hemp hearts -- and I do have hemp hearts, too. :) Funny to see this post tight afterward.
