This recipe couldn't be quicker or tastier, plus, it's easy to make and fun to eat! I usually dress it up by using cinnamon-raisin peanut butter.

This was lunch today. HUGE hit with the kids. I made one small change and I drizzled honey over the top of the banana. The kids went nuts for it. Great way to use overripe bananas and make a quick lunch on a busy day. I like to make these with almond butter or Nutella too. I'll try this with cinnamon swirl bread next time. Read More

Cute and creative! This was a really great snack for kids and kids of all ages. You can also use leftover hot dog rolls in a pinch. I love the combination of peanut butter and banana plus you can jazz this up by adding some raisins mini marshmallows or mini chocolate chips and drizzling with honey or chocolate syrup. Definitely have a tall glass of milk close by.... Read More

These are wonderful as breakfast snack or a light lunch. To make cinnamon-raisin peanut butter just stir 1/2 cup raisins 2T sugar and 3t cinnamon into a 16oz jar of peanut butter. Also make sure the bread is soft and bendable. Read More

I made this for the kids one hot spring afternoon. They were leary of the name...ha ha ha...but were pleasantly surprised at how good these were! It was very quick and easy to make; meanwhile fairly healthy. I used ALL organic ingredients and whole wheat gluten free bread. Delicious! Read More

I grew up on peanut butter and banana sandwiches but my oldest didn't like the idea of them. When I found this I thought it would be a perfect way to get him to try my favorite childhood sandwich. Needless to say he loved it! Thanks for such a cute idea. Read More

I also do this with hot dog buns (especially if some are left over). It is very easy for a little one to hold that way. Read More
