Toasted Coconut Peanut Butter and Banana Breakfast Sandwich

I’ve been changing up my morning routines the past few weeks and that definitely includes breakfast. So naturally, I was pumped to share to my newest creation with you all.

It’s kinda like a grilled cheese but for breakfast… and without cheese. But still delicious. Plus, the coconut adds a little something tropical to your morning!

You’ll need:
2 slices multigrain bread (or other thick bread)
2 tablespoons of peanut butter
6-7 slices of banana
1 tablespoon of coconut oil

I have to admit I’ve been resisting the coconut oil train for quite sometime. Not sure why… maybe because the first time I tried to buy some I realized that it wasnt actually oil but a wax-y substance and that really creeped me out for some reason.

Not to fear though, I’ve gotten over that and today dove into my first jar. I decided to keep it simple, since I’m a first timer and all.

Scoop half a tablespoon of coconut oil on to a pan. Let it melt just a touch. It’s so fragrant!

Then place the bread over the oil. I smeared it around a little to make sure it was evenly coated.

Add another half tablespoon of coconut oil and the bread slice with the peanut butter and bananas to the pan. Let the coconut oil gently toast the bread.

Then put the sandwich together and serve! It’s a super quick breakfast. Pretty sure I made this sandwich and took pictures of it in less than 15 minutes.

The coconut oil adds a nice touch to the traditional peanut butter and banana sando.

    Looks like a sandwich I’d like. I haven’t tried that brand of coconut oil, but a couple months ago I started putting a spoonful of Artisana Organic Raw Extra Virgin Coconut Oil in my coffee. OX, Aunt Teri

    This looks so good. I love coconut oil, if I’m not using olive oil i’m most likely using coconut oil. In baked goods it’s amazing as well!

    Thanks for the idea. Instead of bananas I used raisins and toasted coconut along with the oil for a nice crust. my kids loved them.
