2 slice whole wheat bread (any bread of your choice, actually I can imagine it being tasty on cinnamon-raisin) or 1 small
natural-style peanut butter
( I like mine a little bit green)
( see note)
( can omit, but it's really tasty!)
- 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.
- 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.
- Sprinkle on the cinnamon, if using. Slice the banana and arrange in a layer on top of the peanut butter.
- 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.
- 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.
- Note: experiment with different types of dried fruit, or just raisins. Almond butter is also great in this sandwich. Have fun!
