Grilled PB & Banana Sandwich

Now that Lent is in full swing, I figure a meat-free Friday post is appropriate. This little twist on a classic is the perfect way to cap off my work week. Comfort food, book, bed. Looking forward to my quiet, relaxing evening.


  • two slices of bread (I used a loaf of oatmeal-honey wheat)
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon honey butter
  • 2 tablespoons of peanut butter
  • 1 small banana, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon good honey (optional)
Cinnamon Honey Butter
  • 1/4 pound unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons good honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. 
  2. Spread cinnamon honey butter on one side of each slice of bread.
  3. On the other side of each slice of bread, spread the peanut better.
  4. Drizzle with honey (optional).
  5. Arrange the sliced bananas evenly on the peanut butter side of one slice of bread, then top with the other slice of bread (cinnamon honey butter side out).
  6. Note: I prefer creamy PB with sliced banana, but crunch PB with mashed banana would work well too. I wouldn't go with creamy PB and mashed bananas, though. The sandwich would lack a bit in texture.
  7. Grill the sandwich on medium heat until the peanut butter is slightly melted and gooey and the bread is golden brown, about 2 minutes per side.
Cinnamon Honey Butter
  1. Combine the butter, honey, cinnamon, and salt in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.
  2. Refrigerate after initial use.
