In fact, did you know that a Grilled Peanut Butter Banana Sandwich was Elvis Presley’s favorite food?
It is very delicious, and my dad was a huge fan of plain old peanut butter banana sandwiches, not even toasted.
This is a kicked up version I quite enjoy making when I’m in the mood for this indulgence.
I add a drizzle of honey, which especially helps when you are using a banana that’s not completely ripe, or just isn’t that sweet.
Also, the bee pollen I add to this recipe is for health purposes, as well as flavor and some texture, but it’s an optional ingredient that you’re able to find at most health food stores, and even some organic sections in grocery stores.
