Who would have thought combining a banana split with a grilled sandwich would lead to such a yummy, nutritious hybrid? Kids will have fun stacking banana slices, strawberries and chocolate chips, then smashing the bread down with their hands to ensure that the peanut butter seals the sandwich shut. This recipe comes to us from Alysa, Joe and Leila Bajenaru of Inspired RD.
Together: Spread the peanut butter on 2 of the slices of bread.
Place the banana and strawberry slices on the 2 plain slices of bread. Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top of the fruit, if using. Close the sandwich with the peanut butter covered bread, taking care to press each sandwich closed firmly with your hands.
Melt the butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the sandwiches and grill for 1 minute on each side, or until the bread is golden brown. Cut each sandwich in triangles and enjoy!
