Things have been so busy lately hence the silence in these quarters. I don’t have anything decent to share with you as I haven’t had much time for cooking so here is my current comfort food obsession which can be thrown together in a few moments. I’m sure you are no stranger to the whole concept of a peanut butter and banana sandwich. You either love or hate the idea of this combination. My husband wouldn’t go near one. I however view this as the ultimate comfort food. I graduated a few years ago from peanut butter to almond butter as my favourite sandwich filling, not just for the taste but the health benefits too. Any kind of nut butter would work or chocolate spread would be amazing and totally indulgent. Since it’s a grey October day I felt like a toastie was in order so I made an almond butter and banana toasted sandwich and it was scrumptious. I probably could have gone a little more liberal with the almond butter, it should really be oozing out the sides of the sandwich but nevertheless, this was just what I wanted. If I had more time and was a better food blogger, I would have made the almond butter myself, it’s good to have something to aspire to. For now, shop bought will have to do.
I used a grill for this but I imagine you could also use a skillet. Toast your gluten free bread on one side then remove from the grill and top the toasted side liberally with nut butter of your choice. Place a layer of sliced banana on top then make a sandwich leaving the untoasted sides facing outwards. Return the sandwich to the grill and finish off toasting each side of the bread. Once golden brown remove from the grill and devour.
