Healthy and Filling Sandwich *kid approved*

16 Apr

This seems to becoming a food blog, but I thought about it and realized that I’m in a house with 4 boys who eat

ALL. DAY. LONG.

I came across this recipe a little over a year ago, I think it came from Paula Deen, but this is how I do it.   I have never had more than a quarter of one of these, it is sooo fattening.  Little Jeremy has never had much interest in food (until recently)  Around 1 yr of age he went through the “failure to thrive” thing, or as I like to call it “he’s just little!”  thing.  I’m always trying to get something that can fill them up and put on some pounds.Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich

Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana

Mix together:

2 tbs natural peanut butter (enough for a good slathering)

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp honey

Spread on your bread ( I use whole wheat)

Slice up half a banana

Top with the other slice of bread and butter each of the outsides

Put a little butter in your pan and grill the sandwich

I have a cinnamon/sugar shaker I shake on each side when it’s done, or you could mix some cinnamon and sugar and coat the sandwich.

This is a couple of times a month sandwich and my boys are very active.  Made with whole grain bread, raw honey, cinnamon, it is high calorie and good for them!  Better than the dr’s suggestions of adding more butter and oil to their foods.. ugggh.

Enjoy!
