Peanut Butter Exhibition #5---My Banana Bread Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich

Banana Bread Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich--The Peanut Butter Boy's Great Peanut Butter Exhibition #5-Sandwich



This sandwich is heaven to me. First you need banana bread--I just made up a recipe for this and it's pretty good--you can use any recipe for banana bread you'd like. Take two slices and slather each generously with your favorite peanut butter. I used Skippy Natural for this one. After putting peanut butter on both slices of bread, slice fresh banana on top and drizzle with some honey. Put slices together and oh. my. goodness. Did I say this is a great sandwich?

I'm telling you--HEAVEN! (And just as a note, I normally would put mini chocolate chips in the banana bread, but I'm at my parents house and my mom doesn't eat chocolate, so I left it out just for her.) Go get a glass of milk, you're gonna need it with this amazing sandwich. Ooh and we'd thought it would also be divine in a panini press!)

Here's the recipe I made up for the banana bread!

Katrina's Last Minute Banana Bread

1/2 cup plain yogurt

2 tablespoons canola oil

2/3 cup granulated sugar

1 large egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1  1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1  1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 cup overripe mashed banana, (about 3 medium bananas)

3/4 cup toasted walnuts, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray an 8x4 inch bread pan with cooking spray, set aside.  Combine yogurt, oil and sugar in medium sized bowl.  Blend together well.  Add vanilla and egg and whisk together.  Add the baking powder, baking soda, salt and flour and stir with a wooden spoon, just until combined.  In another bowl, mash banana with a fork until well mashed.   Fold in banana and chopped walnuts just until combined.  Spread batter in baking pan and bake for 35-45 minutes.  Test with toothpick inserted in center.  It should come out clean.  Cool in pan on wire rack for 5-10 minutes, remove from pan and let cool to room temperature.

Oh man, oh man. This sounds divine! I totally love the idea of putting this sandwich in a panini press. PB and honey are one of the best combinations EVER, and eating this combo on banana bread, well, that's just heavenly! Great creation!

Never mind the panini press, or the glass of milk - just give me the sandwich!

I love everything about that combination - especially the honey.
