Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat panini grill.

  • Spread peanut butter evenly over 2 bread slices. Cut each banana half lengthwise into 3 slices. Layer banana slices over peanut butter on bread slices. Top with remaining bread slices.

  • Coat outsides of sandwiches with cooking spray. Place sandwiches on panini grill; cook 1 minute or until golden. Cut each sandwich into 4 sticks. Drizzle sandwich sticks evenly with chocolate syrup. Serve with honey for dipping.

  • Tip: If you don't have a panini grill, use a grill pan or skillet. Add your sandwiches, and then top them with another heavy skillet.

  • Kids Can Help: Kids can spread the peanut butter on the bread, top it with the bananas, and place the bread on top. They can also drizzle the chocolate.
