For many years, I believed that a plain peanut butter and banana sandwich was the best thing ever invented. But that all changed during one creative hour in my kitchen…
Ladies and Gentlemen, without further ado, I present to you the Sandwich of Dreams– layers of gooey peanut butter goodness, sweet, ripe banana, and plump, pillow-y raisins snuggled up inside a warm bread blanket and grilled to perfection.
Katie’s Sandwich of Dreams
Two slices of whole wheat bread
1 ripe banana
3-4 tablespoons of peanut butter, or another nut butter
chocolate chips (optional)
Heat a skillet or griddle over medium heat and coat with cooking spray. Spread some peanut butter on one side of each slice of bread. Place banana slices and raisins onto the peanut buttered side of one slice, top with the other slice and press together firmly. Grill the sandwich until golden brown on each side, about 2 minutes per side.
There you have it– a healthy, delicious meal.
If you want to be really decadent, dip the sandwich slices in soymilk as you eat them :o)
… and to be even MORE decadent, substitute chocolate chips for the raisins. I’ve never tried this, but I don’t see how it could produce a sandwich that is anything less than spectacular!
