Sweet caramelized banana is stuffed into bread crisped up with cinnamon honey butter.
Tbsp softened butter or vegan buttery spread (such as Earth Balance), divided use
medium banana, peeled and sliced
tsp brown sugar
tsp ground cinnamon, divided use
slices whole wheat sandwich bread
powdered sugar for serving, optional
Melt 1 tsp butter in a small skillet set over medium-low heat. Add in the banana slices and sprinkle with brown sugar. Cook until caramelized, about 2-3 minutes per side, stirring occasionally. When done, stir in 1/4 tsp cinnamon. Transfer to a small bowl. Wipe out skillet (or replace with a clean one) and reduce stove heat to medium-low. Meanwhile, combine remaining 2 tsp butter, honey, and remaining 1/4 tsp cinnamon in a small bowl. Spread one side of each bread slice with the cinnamon honey butter. Lay one slice of bread, buttered side down, in the skillet over medium-low heat. Top with caramelized banana slices and remaining bread slice, buttered side up. Cook sandwich until golden brown and crisp, turning halfway through, about 2-3 minutes total. Slice sandwich diagonally in half and top with powdered sugar, if using.
