Peanut Butter, Banana and Chocolate Toast

Peanut Butter, Banana and Chocolate Toast

Here’s what I did with two slices of this bread: Peanut Butter, Banana and Chocolate Toast. All you need is two slices of homemade bread, two tablespoons of peanut butter, four thick slices of banana and two ounces of bittersweet chocolate. The trick is to roughly chop some of the chocolate and shave the rest very finely. The shaved chocolate melts completely and the large pieces remain solid, providing a nice crunch.

Speaking of crunch, a couple of days after I took the photo above, I had another great idea: To make it even more delicious and interesting, try brushing the top with some melted butter before toasting and sprinkle crunchy fleur de sel right after.

Feel free to do your own variation, but make sure to use a homemade loaf – it really is worth the time.

    I lived off a variation of this in college-chocolate was replaced with honey and i dusted the PB with cinnamon.
