Open-Face Peanut Butter & Banana Sandwich

My morning snack usually consists of sliced apples, 1/2 tbsp. of peanut butter, and 3 graham crackers.  Since I was at home and I hadn’t prepped the meal, I chose to be a bit creative.  Staying within the fruit, fat, and starch pattern, I made a peanut butter and banana sandwich.  Keeping half my grains whole, I went for 100% whole wheat bread.

Banana & PBOnce you’ve portioned your banana and peanut butter, mash the two together with a fork.  You’ll want 70 grams of banana and 8 grams of peanut butter.  That’s “about half” and 1/2 tbsp, respectively.

PB Banana on ToastI decided to toast my bread.  It’s a snack that even Elvis would be proud of.

  1. Looks delicious! I’ve done a similar thing with PB, jelly, and bananas… But then I threw it on my panini grill! The texture of the toasted bread went really with the soft banana. Now I’m craving one of those sandwiches all over again!

    Love PB @ B Sandwiches. Keep Up The Hard Work!

  3. Similar to my breakfast yesterday – couple tablespoons of chunky peanut butter with a banana to dip in it. I’m trying to minimize my wheat, so no toast for me.

    • Peanut butter is crazy high in fat and calories when used as a protein. 2 tbsp, in the exchange system, is 2 servings of protein plus 2 servings of fat. A little goes a long way. I use peanut butter as a healthy source of fat, so I portion it 1/2 tbsp at a time.

      Have you looked at PB2? It’s a low cal alternative to peanut butter. 2 tbsp is 45 calories. It’s basically pulverized peanuts with the oils removed. Super tasty.
