Dessert sandwich

I don't buy bread that often because I end up throwing half the loaf away because I never eat it on a regular basis.  I'll get in the mood for a sandwich, go buy all the stuff, lunchmeat, veggies, etc., and make one or two sandwiches and end up tossing stuff.

So the other day I was flipping through Shape or Women's Health or Fitness and they had a great pre-post workout snack, a slice of whole wheat bread with peanut butter and sliced banana.

Hmmm...that sounded good, so after my workout I opened up the loaf of Pepperidge Farm Honey Flax bread I bought a week ago (yeah, it took a week to even open the loaf), but decided to improve on the tastiness (not necessarily the healthy part though) and wow, if you are craving sweets with a wicked case of PMS or just want to really indulge, try this.

  • 2 slices bread (any kind you like, I used the honey flax)
  • 1 TB peanut butter
  • 1 TB Nutella
  • sliced banana
  • handful of mini marshmallows
Spread peanut butter on one slice of bread, Nutella on the other, throw the bananas and marshmallows in and you've got yourself a crazy good (but not so good for you) sandwich.  But really, 1 TB of Nutella is like 100 calories, yeah it's got sugar, etc., but who doesn't love hazelnut?!


  1. Hey, that sounds great! What happens if you cook it like a grilled cheese so the bread gets crispy and the mallow gets gooey?

  2. I've always been curious as to how Nutella and Almond Butter tastes... with a nut allergy, I'll never know :(

  3. I'm the same with you on the bread. I wish they made a single person's half loaf size.

    My love for Nutella is ridiculous.
