Peanut Butter Panini with Bananas & Honey

Peanut Butter Panini with Bananas & Honey
Peanut butter and banana fans will adore this grilled sandwich. We guarantee it will be a big hit with the kids, who will love to lend a hand with the preparations. The sandwich is made with home-ground peanut butter for optimum flavor.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups roasted unsalted peanuts
  • 1 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup peanut oil
  • 2 Tbs. plus 4 tsp. honey
  • 8 slices white sandwich bread
  • 3 Tbs. unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 bananas, peeled, halved crosswise and quartered lengthwise
  • Honey for serving (optional)

Directions:

Put the peanuts, salt, peanut oil and the 2 Tbs. honey in a mini food processor. Process until the desired consistency is reached, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. You will need 1/2 cup peanut butter for making the panini; reserve the remaining peanut butter for another use. (It will keep, covered and refrigerated, for up to 2 weeks.)

Preheat a panini press to 400°F according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Brush one side of each bread slice with the melted butter. Turn 4 of the slices over and spread each with 2 Tbs. peanut butter. Top each with 4 banana slices and drizzle with 1 tsp. honey. Top each with one of the remaining bread slices, buttered side up.

Place the sandwiches on the preheated panini press and cook until the bread is golden brown and toasted, about 2 minutes. Transfer the sandwiches to a cutting board and cut each in quarters. Repeat with the remaining sandwiches. Serve with honey for dipping. Serves 4.
