Peanut Butter-Plus Sandwiches

Yield 8 servings (serving size: 1/2 sandwich)
Half a sandwich makes a great post-exercise snack. Or enjoy a whole sandwich for lunch. Mix up a batch of the spread (it will keep in the refrigerator for several days), and make sandwiches as needed. The filling doubles as a tasty dip with apple wedges or strawberries.

  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 cup mashed banana (about 1 large)
  • 3 tablespoons golden raisins
