  • 1

    Tbsp softened butter or vegan buttery spread (such as Earth Balance), divided use

  • 1

    medium banana, peeled and sliced

  • 1

    tsp brown sugar

  • 1

    tsp honey

  • ½

    tsp ground cinnamon, divided use

  • 2

    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.
