  • 4 whole wheat or regular English muffins, split in half
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 ripe bananas, sliced into ¼-inch-thick rounds
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • Cooking Directions

    Place the halved English muffins on a clean work surface, cut sides up. Spread 1 tablespoon of peanut butter over each piece. Divide the banana rounds equally among 4 of the halves, and drizzle 11/2 teaspoons of the honey over each banana-topped half. Top with the 4 remaining halves. Using half of the melted butter, brush one side of each sandwich.

    Heat a 12-inch sauté pan over medium-high heat. When it is hot, lower the temperature to medium. Place 2 sandwiches in the pan, buttered side down, and cook until crisp and browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Brush the tops of the sandwiches with some of the remaining melted butter. Turn the sandwiches over and cook the other side for another 1 to 2 minutes. Remove, and repeat with the remaining sandwiches. Slice the sandwiches in half diagonally, and serve immediately.
