Cinnamon Honey Walnut Butter & Caramelized Banana Sandwich


Do you love the classic pairing of peanut butter and jelly? This leveled-up sandwich is a fun new take, celebrating the delicious combination of nut butter and fruit.


  1. Wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Rinse fresh produce.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  4. Layer walnuts on a sheet pan and bake for 8 minutes or until they become fragrant. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Heat oven to broil.
  5. In a food processor, grind walnuts until they become sticky. Add salt.
  6. While pulsing, slowly add oil a little at a time, until walnut butter binds together. Add honey and cinnamon and pulse a few additional times to combine.
  7. Spread a thin layer of prepared walnut butter on one side of each slice of bread. Set aside.
  8. Peel banana and cut in half lengthwise. Cut each half crosswise to make four banana slices. Place banana slices on a small sheet pan lined with foil or parchment paper, cut sides up. Lightly sprinkle tops with sugar and cinnamon.
  9. Place bananas on top rack in oven and broil until sugar melts and bananas begin to brown, about 1-2 minutes. Watch closely to prevent burning.
  10. Carefully transfer bananas to one slice of bread and top with the second slice.
  11. Cut in half and enjoy!
