The combination of honey and banana promotes great help with anemia (thanks for that info, Rita!). It also makes a great spread for a tea sandwich! You could use toasted white bread, but I have found that the combo spread on whole wheat bread or pumpernickel is WONDERFUL! It also gives a bit more nutritious value to what you're eating. I don't normally toast the wheat bread for these little treats, but you could. It's also a great recipe to serve to younger tea party guests.
- Cut the bread into decorative shapes with a knife or cookie cutter. If the bread is very crumbly, heat the honey just slightly to make it easier to spread.
- Spread both the top and bottom slices with honey and fill with the bananas.
- Trim the crust and cut into fourths.
Oh yum, what a great combination of flavours! The banana goes great with the honey and bread making this a truly delightful sandwich. I used a local creamy organic honey and organic bananas with local pumpernickel bread for a wholesome treat. Just great and also very pretty to look at! I didnt measure the honey, just spread it on there. :)
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing a keeper with us, Redneck Epicurean!
Made and reviewed for the Honey Tag Game in the Spain/Portugal Forum February 2012.
Simple and delicious. My little one loved them.
Your legacy lives on in this delightfully simple recipe packed with flavor. I like the idea of cutting them into shapes. This is in my keeper box.
