This version of an American classic is sure to be a hit at any table: Grilled peanut butter and banana sandwich

Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches is a staple of most American diets and has even traveled across the pond as a lunchtime treat.

It’s a versatile snack that can be eaten any time of the day, from first thing in the morning to last thing at night.

But for many parents, eating peanut butter and sweet jelly sandwiches is not something they want their children to eat all the time due to the high sugar content.

Thankfully peanut butter and banana sandwiches are a healthier option and taste just as good. I found this recipe which takes the humble peanut butter and banana sandwich to a whole new level.

It’s too delicious not to share.
