Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich

I loved this recipe! I’m a fan of all things peanut butter and banana, and this was no exception, I used some yummy sourdough bread from the bakery and sliced the bananas lengthwise to get long strips that stayed on the bread better, I drizzled some honey over the peanut butter on the inside and they were delicious. Warm and gooey and definitely something I make a lot of.

You Americans have the best and sometimes weirdest combos for sandwiches I’ve ever seen, I’ve just got to love pb&j, but this is amazing. definitely a new favorite, I made it in my panini maker and it worked perfectly, had it with maple syrup drizzled over it for breakfast was lovely, I’ve also had a similar sandwich but with a nutty chocolate spread and banana, give that a go, all gooey and great.

I liked this as a kid, but never tried it grilled. Because my youngest has some food allergies, I tried this with spelled bread and almond butter, I tried grilling and using a toaster oven–grilling definitely works better for spelled bread because it’s so dense. This was a good breakfast idea, and got even higher reviews when I added a little maple syrup 🙂
