    White Rose Child's Note:

    No title can do justice to the wonder of this delicious sandwich. I always think of it as panini, though I'm sure that's not technically correct! Anyway, it's grilled with peanut butter and banana and if you're in doubt, try it, you'll never want cold Pb&b again.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 1



    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 slice whole wheat bread (any bread of your choice, actually I can imagine it being tasty on cinnamon-raisin) or 1 small pita bread
    • 22.18-29.58 ml natural-style peanut butter
    • 1 medium banana (I like mine a little bit green)
    • 7.39 ml raisins
    • 7.39 ml dried cranberries (see note)
    • 0.25 ml cinnamon (can omit, but it's really tasty!) (optional)
    • margarine (optional)


    1. 1
      Preheat a small nonstick pan on medium, or a regular pan if you plan to coat the bread with margarine. I never use margarine. A nonstick pan alone will make you a lovely crispy sandwich.
    2. 2
      If using bread, spread the peanut butter on one slice. If using the pita, spread on half of one side so that it can be folded in half around the fillings.
    3. 3
      Sprinkle on the cinnamon, if using. Slice the banana and arrange in a layer on top of the peanut butter.
    4. 4
      Stick the dried fruit in the spaces between banana slices, and either place the other slice of bread on top or fold your pita in half.
    5. 5
      Fry on one side until preferred level of goldy brown-ness is reached. Flip and repeat- the second side never takes as long. By the way, grilling a pita may seem tricky at first. The key is to FIRST fry the side you folded over, and press the pita gently with a spatula, fork, etc. This will let the banana "melt" and stick to the folded-over side, so your pita's not trying to open on you.
    6. 6
      Note: experiment with different types of dried fruit, or just raisins. Almond butter is also great in this sandwich. Have fun!

      I loved this sandwich! It made a delicious and filling lunch for me today. I definitely added the cinnamon. I will be making this one again! I made this for the Australian/New Zealand Swap #15.

      Quick and satisfying. I used a very high quality multi-grain bread (reknowned local bakery), and dried blueberries (I live in Maine, after all!). I might even try slathering a tablespoon of cream cheese on the other half of bread! Also, the bread I used held everything together so nicely, that I'm thinking a bunch of these could be made ahead, cut into quarters, and served on a tray for an interesting finger food appetizer. Thanks, White Rose Child! Made for Newest Zaar Tag '08.

      This brought back some memories. My friend and I used to make grilled PB sandwiches after school in high school. I can't wait to try them again - especially with banana and raisins.
