Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Sandwiches

I’m assuming that just about everyone enjoys eating chocolate and peanut butter together as much as I do. Unless, of course, you are allergic to one or the other. In which case I apologize now because you are not going to be able to enjoy my new favorite sandwich.

I’m thankful I don’t have any nut allergies. Because I really like eating this stuff, and so do my kids.

I mean what could be better than chocolate, peanut butter, and bananas for lunch anyway?

Well, maybe bananas ON the peanut butter like this…

And maybe that piece of bread slathered with Nutella slapped on top of the peanut butter and bananas like this…

Okay, yep. This chocolate peanut butter banana sandwich is good. Actually it is delicious.

I ought to know. Because by the time I dropped Ethan and Kayli off at their parks & recreation afternoon activities, and I put my other two sick little girls down for naps, I was hungry. I made one of these sandwiches for lunch.

When I finished off the last bite I was seriously depressed. Because I am trying to be disciplined about what and how much I eat. As I sat in my chair reading the news on my iPad all I kept thinking about is how much I really just wanted to eat another one of these sandwiches. Talk about being tempted!

But I resisted. Until Peter called to let me know he was going to be working late and would not be home for dinner. Then just guess what I fixed the kids for dinner?! Let’s just say I got my share of “Thanks, Mom!” and kisses tonight! My kids enjoyed their dinners. Even if Inga DID end up wearing most of it!

If you haven’t tried the peanut butter, Nutella combo you totally should. And while you’re at it, throw in some bananas. I’m thinking you’re  going to like it!

You may even want to try making grilled sandwiches.

The only thing better than Nutella, peanut butter & banana sandwiches may be GRILLED Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Sandwiches.

I mean, come on. Look at that melted, ooey, gooey, peanut butter and melted chocolate over bananas. If that doesn’t make you want to fire up your panini grill, grab those jars of Nutella and peanut butter, and start peeling a banana then I don’t know what will!

Seriously, give them a try and let me know what you think.

    For breakfast, I had a peanut butter, raisin and honey sandwich. I know I like PB and banana sandwiches, but I need to try a grilled one. Sounds delicious!
