  • 2 slices wholegrain sourdough bread
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 Tbsp. each party nut butter and chocolate nut butter (See below)
  • a little ghee, butter, or coconut oil
  • a pinch of sea salt
  • honey, to taste if desired


  • Spread your fat of choice on one side of each slice of bread. On the other side spread your choice of nut butter. Slice the banana and place on top of the nut butter, drizzle with honey and sprinkle with sea salt if desired. Place halves together.
  • In a preheated pan over low-medium heat, place the buttered side of bread down and cook until golden. Although it is tempting to blast the sandwich with heat to cook it faster, this will only result in burnt toast and a cold interior. Slow, low-heat cooking is the key to this sandwich.
  • When the bottom of the sandwich is golden, flip and repeat on the other side. The sandwich is ready when the middle of the sandwich should be gooey and warm
