Nutella & Peanut Butter Banana Panini

Switzerlandmonth2 031edit

If you are needing a snack, you should make this. If you are needing some breakfast, make this. If you are just needing a pick me up, make this. Whatever you are needing….make this. You will lick the knife, lick your fingers and probably even lick the plate…and you will wish you had ten more in front of you. I don’t even lie.

I try to eat as healthy as I can for the most part. You know, no processed foods. Lots of veggies. Lots of fruit. Good sources of protein. And I love it…..but once in awhile I get a craving. And sometimes it is good to give into those cravings simply because it puts a smile on your face.

Enter this lovely, ooey gooey sandwich.

The hubs and I made it on Sunday when we cooked brunch together. So much fun, by the way. He whipped up the healthy portion of the meal. Sweet potato hash and fried eggs, and I took on the wonderful duty (or privilege) of making these bad boys. They are easy peasy, and you will love them! The key to making these is to be generous. With everything. Peanut butter. Nutella. Bananas. Butter. All of it. There are no measurements needed. I will leave that up to you :)

First, preheat your oven to 400 degrees (if you don’t have a panini maker).

Then place in the panini maker, or in the oven for about 7-10 minutes.
