Broiled Banana and Peanut Butter Toast

Broiled Banana and Peanut Butter Toast

There’s only one thing better than peanut butter & chocolate, and that’s the heavenly combination of warm banana, peanut butter & chocolate.

We are returning to our oven broiling tip (see our pear yogurt toast recipe from a couple of weeks ago for reference), but this time with bananas! We drizzle sliced bananas with honey and pop them under the broiler for a few minutes. The result: caramelized, tender and delicious pieces of warm fruit. Paired with creamy peanut butter and topped with dark chocolate shavings, this makes for a luxurious breakfast, dessert or mid-day treat. Zero added sugar, and one super tasty toast!

cooking time: 10 minutes inactive, 5 minutes active

For the Bananas
• 2 bananas, peeled & sliced vertically
• 1 tbsp honey

Set your oven to the broiler setting and place a rack in the middle of the oven. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper or foil and place the bananas on the pan (flat-side facing upwards). Drizzle evenly with honey. Place the sheet pan in the oven under the broiler and let caramelize for 8-10 minutes. Keep a vigilant eye so that the bananas don’t burn. Let broil until golden brown and then remove from the oven

To assemble and serve

  • 2 slices of For the Love of Bread organic whole wheat sourdough sandwich bread, toasted
  • peanut butter or your favorite nut butter
  • the broiled bananas
  • 10 grams of 70% dark chocolate shavings

Spread the peanut butter generously on each toast. Place the broiled bananas on top. Finish with dark chocolate shavings on top and enjoy!

Recipe Note

  • Try not to use overripe bananas as sometimes they can become mushy and fall apart.
