How to Make Peanut Butter Banana Toast

It’s laughably easy to make peanut butter banana toast, so the fun part comes in when you get to add the toppings!

To start, go ahead and grab your favorite sliced bread. I like to use Dave’s Killer Bread or Silver Hills sprouted wheat bread. Pop a slice into the toaster, toast to your desired toast level, then cool a bit and place on a plate.

Smear peanut butter onto the toast—you can use crunchy peanut butter, chocolate peanut butter, really anything you’d like. Then, follow one of my recipes for special toppings to create delicious peanut butter banana toast variations. Enjoy!

When Do I Know My Bananas Are Ready?

There are a few things to look for to tell that your bananas are nice and ripe:

  • Brown spots all over the bananas—the more you see, the riper they are
  • Soft when you gently squeeze them
  • A deep yellow, no green in sight
  • A heavy scent of sweet bananas

What Kind of Peanut Butter Should I Use?

You can use any kind you’d like. 🙂 If you’re a lover of salty peanut butter, go ahead and reach for the salted kind. But if you’re like me, you like to save your salt for a savory treat during a meal. As such, I end up using unsalted, natural creamy peanut butter for my peanut butter and banana toast.

You can also switch things up and use almond butter, pecan butter, or even make your own homemade cashew butter to use on your banana toast.

PBB Variations

Half and Half

  • 1 T peanut butter + 1 T nutella instead of 2T peanut butter

Reminiscent of an everything bagel, minus the salty onion-ness.

  • ½ teaspoon granulated monkfruit or organic cane sugar

Sweet and cozy, like a healthified version of cinnamon toast crunch!
