When you got things between bread in your head… 

Recipe Inspiration

Eternal, unconditional love for peanut butter. And toasties. And bananas. OK, and honey. But really, it’s the peanut butter that stole our hearts. We will accept any excuse to make ourselves a comforting, delicious, easy, PB snack, lunch, breakfast, (dinner?). 

Why We Love It

Well, peanut butter… melted… Need we say more?

Equipment

Toasties require tools. For this toastie, here is the specific equipment that we used:

  • Tefal: Inicio Grill (Awesome for Toasties and All Grilling Needs)
  • Tefal: Ultracompact Sandwich (Dedicated Toastie Maker)

For this toastie, we recommend using a dedicated toastie maker because it helps keeps all of the gooey goodness locked inside. But really, any way you choose to make it will be equally delicious. 

We have spent many hours making, and eating, toasties in our Toastie Lab kitchen. We have some awesome equipment recommendations that you can use to make your very own toasties. Check it out on our Recommended Tools page. 

The Vegan Option

Exchange the honey for maple syrup, and butter for coconut oil. 

Make sure your bread is vegan and enjoy!

Peanut Butter Picks 

Finding the right peanut butter can be tricky, and it will definitely define your success on making this toastie. Here at the toastie-lab, we take PB very seriously. 

We have a profound love for this protein-rich delight and we will not let an opportunity go past without sharing our preferences with the world. 

Our advice: a crunchy, organic, palm-oil free, no added sugar, but with organic sea salt. Or make your own!  

It’s Bananas, B-A-YANA-YANA-YANAS

How much is there to it? Picking a banana might sound easier than it is, but don’t be fooled! You don’t want an unripe banana on this toastie, so we recommend either a ripe (yellow) banana, or very ripe (yellow with some brown spots). 

Got yourself a banana with a few more brown spots than you’d normally fancy? This recipe is perfect to use up your banananananana. Just mash ‘m up with a fork and spread the banana paste onto the bread. 

Honey

Honey, honey. Sugar, sugar. Maple syrup works fine, too! As long as there’s something to give this toastielicious beauty a little extra sweet kick. 

To Butter Or Not To Butter

For us, buttering your bread is a must-do! We love the shiny, crunchy crusts, and butter really is the way to go, to have this dessert toastie make you mouth-water even more! 

Now, there is an alternative if you’re trying to cut calories, and that is to use coconut oil for this one. Same techniques as the butter, but with coconut oil instead.

Description

Yes, yes, YES! You heard us right! PB goes bananas! This is one of our favorite toasties. Have it for breakfast, as a snack, for dessert… for dinner! It’s one of those recipes which you’ll always have the ingredients for in your kitchen. The perfect recipe no matter what you’re up to. 


Scale

Ingredients

  • 4 slices of white bread
  • 1 banana cut in slices
  • 1 big tablespoon of Peanut Butter
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • Butter

Instructions

  1. First, spread some butter on the outsides of the bread. 
  2. Cut the bananas into thin slices, either sideways or just regular. 
  3. Spread a thick layer of peanut butter on both sides of the toastie. Add the banana slices to them, and, if you’re a sweet tooth, go ahead and add some honey to it. 
  4. Squeeze together gently and place the toastie-to-be in either a panini-grill, or toastie-maker. If you’ve cut the banana thin enough, you should be able to use an old school toastie machine. If you’re going for the real deal and have piled up on your vitamin B friend, you might want to consider a panini-grill or sandwich-press. 
  5. Grill for about 5-7 minutes and carefully take out the toastie when nice and crispy. 
  6. Cut diagonally, squeeze some more honey on top or on the side and enjoy!
