Banana, Peanut Butter and Nutella Panini Sandwich

Banana, Peanut Butter and Nutella Panini Sandwich

Desperate times require desperate actions! To be more precise, when you need a quick dessert fix, you do whatever it takes… bow to sugar craving and fulfill it. I am not a fan of Nutella and I think there are just a few recipes on the blog with this ingredient, this rich Italian dessert a refreshing frappeNutella cupcakes with Nutella frosting etc but I have to admit it has very soothing and comforting properties… When you look at it sitting in the pantry you know it can be a friend in need, if not best friend.


The idea is simple yet pure pleasure, dab some Nutlella and peanut butter on a piece of bread, any bread for that matter, put some slices of banana, sprinkle any available chocolate chips followed by a hint of cinnamon to give a warm kick to the flavors, cover with bread and press in the panini machine or a sandwich maker or a grill pan.

Serve with cinnamon infused cream. Ah! Grilled to perfection, not-too-sweet, mix and match velvety flavors sandwiched in between crunchy bread.. Life is perfect, my friend! If you need a break from regular fall/winter halwas ( I say this with all my love and respect for our desi sweet treats), give it a go. It would be like a gentle, warm and comforting hug 🙂
