Easy Peasy Grilled PB&B

One of my favorite sandwiches of all time are peanut butter and banana sandwiches.  There is a small group out there that would totally cringe at the thought of this type of food fare.  No, I'm not pregnant and having odd cravings - actually, this was a favorite combination of the great "King of Rock n Roll" (Elvis, for those of you yung'uns reading this).  So, last Sunday, I tried making Grilled PB&B Sandwiches for the kids after church and they gave it a thumbs up!!  Have it for lunch, breakfast, dinner or a snack - it's just that good!

And so - here is Challenge #4 - not entirely creative, but delicious indeed!

Grilled PB&B's

2 slices of whole wheat toast
Peanut Butter - I used creamy, but who says you can't use chunky?? 

Spread peanut butter on one side of each slice of bread.  Thinly slice bananas and place them on one piece of bread over the peanut butter.  Place other slice of bread and put on top to make the sandwich.  Butter the outside of the sandwich, both top and bottom.

Heat griddle or skillet.  Use butter to coat.  Grill it to your liking. 

End Result: a piece of ooey-gooey peanut butter and banana goodness!

Enjoy and live with gusto!


  1. I am a peanut butter lover too. These sandwiches look so tasty and are perfect for breakfast or even school lunches.

    I like the name you gave them ... PB&B... it has a nice ring to it ;)

  2. You should totally try spreading some Nutella on there-Heaven!

  3. Oooo . . . Nutella . . . that stuff should be illegal, it's so good! Nutella makes everything better!!

  4. We always do grilled peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, but never thought to do the classic PB&B! Sounds great!

  5. I love a good PB&B, especially if the bread is well (and I mean VERY well) buttered. Nutella would take it to nirvana level.

  6. PB & B has always been a favorite of mine as well. My hubby makes what he calls "PB Splits" for the kids. You take a hotdog bun and slather both inside sides with peanut butter. Then lay a whole peeled banana inside the bun (or cut it in half lengthwise if you wish) and finish it off with some honey drizzled over the top. A table of smiles every time!
