Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich

Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich

Note: This recipe is for anyone following a vegetarian (meat-free) diet.

This is a great sandwich for your lunchbox. It tastes even better with a glass of milk or soy milk.

Prep time: 5 minutes


  • 2 slices whole-wheat bread
  • 1/4 banana, sliced
  • 2 tbsp. peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp. cereal (natural wheat and barley cereal flakes)

  • measuring spoons


  1. Spread peanut butter one side of each slice of bread.
  2. Spread banana pieces on the peanut butter on one slice of bread.
  3. On the other slice of bread, sprinkle cereal so that it sticks to the peanut butter and covers the bread.
  4. Place the slices together and serve.
