Trio of Tastiness: Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich

Lately, I’ve done a lot of labor-intensive chocolate items.  Cupcakes (with filling and frosting) and bagels aren’t the simplest things to whip up in a hurry.  Thus, I would like to present you with one of my favorites: chocolate, peanut butter and banana sandwiches.

These are transportable, easy, and require simple ingredients you’re likely to have on hand.

Ingredients:

2 slices of bread

Peanut butter (I’m a huge JIF fan!)

Cinnamon (optional)

Cocoa powder (if this was optional, I wouldn’t be a chocolatier!)

Powdered sugar (optional- for a little sweetness)

Banana

Directions:

Put the bread on the counter (a napkin underneath makes clean-up easier).  Spread the desired amount of peanut butter on one slice of bread.

Sprinkle desired amount of cinnamon, cocoa powder and powdered sugar.

Spread the powdered ingredients into the peanut butter.

Slice banana longways (in strips from top to bottom instead of side to side to keep the pieces from sliding out mid-bite).  Place on the peanut butter side of the bread.

Place the other piece of bread on top and wah-la!  Lunch is served.

Pack up, carry to the nearest couch or table, or eat standing at the counter.  A tall glass of cold milk+this sandwich=YUM.

Looking for something more substantial but still tasty and simple?  You’ll have to 86 the chocolate, but Casey has some creative and easy ideas for you.
