Barlean’s Banana Chicks

Recipe and Post Created By: Danniel Davenport

***These can be made Vegan/Vegetarian if using Flax Based Omega Swirls.

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free

Banana Chicks

Recently, I have been seeing all of these really wonderful photos and posts of kiddo friendly foods. I love being able to create tidbits in my kitchen that are not only healthy but that my girls have fun making and eating! My oldest daughter loves doing art projects and crafts with me. In an effort to meld my love for food and her love for crafts these “Banana Chicks” were hatched!

Banana Chicks ingredients

These would be really wonderful to give to family and friends who may not be sold on the idea of fish oil or any omega-3 supplementation.  A variety of Barlean’s Omega Swirls were used to make these.  They could absolutely be geared for vegan or vegetarian diets.  These little loves are rolled in Barlean’s Flax-Chia-Coconut which is a wonderful source of fiber, micronutrients, and minerals.  I hope you all have as much fun making them as I had creating them!


  • 1 Banana cut into rounds
  • Mini Chocolate Chips (I used Vegan chocolate chips) as needed
  • Sunflower seeds (for the beaks) as needed
  • Barlean’s Flax-Chia-Coconut (enough to roll your banana in)
  • Barlean’s Flaxseed oil or Fish oil based Omega Swirl


1. Simply cut your banana into thick rounds.

step 1

2. Roll the banana rounds into Barlean’s Flax-Chia-Coconut Raw Energy- being sure to evenly coat the bottom, the sides, and 1/2 the front of the banana.

Take a Krill Pill

You probably already know whales eat Krill, but what you may not know is that Krill Oil is also a great supplement choice for humans. Why is that? Well, Krill Oil’s phospholipid Omega-3 provides maximum absorption, is easily digested and offers superior bioavailability. Krill oil is also naturally rich in Astaxanthin, one of nature’s strongest super-antioxidants. So, if it’s good enough for the whales, then it’s definitely good enough for us!

Barlean’s is proud to offer Wild & Whole Krill Oil as part of their line of award-winning, great tasting Omega-3 supplements. Barlean’s Wild & Whole Krill Oil softgels are made with 100% pure SUPERBA® krill oil, which is the only krill oil certified to the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) standards. The MSC has created the most demanding and rigorous standards to ensure that marine populations and the ecosystems in which they live remain healthy and productive for today’s and future generations.

Barlean’s Superba® Krill Oil is a pure and renewable nutrition source from the icy, pristine waters of Antarctica, and is 100% unfiltered and unrefined. Krill Oil provides optimal Essential Fatty Acid nutrition with phospholipid bound Omega-3s. Barlean’s Wild & Whole Krill Oil features a delicious natural berry flavor to make it easy on the palate, and encapsulated with Barlean’s FreshTech patented softgel technology to support product freshness.

Barlean’s Wild & Whole Krill Oil is the ultimate source of Omega-3s, Phospholipids and antioxidants. Wild & Whole Krill Oil is the perfect supplement that may help drive your health in the right direction. Visit your local health food store or Barlean’s online at to get your License to Krill with either a 60ct or 120ct bottle of Wild & Whole Krill Oil.
