  • About This Recipe

    “An absolutely delicious done-in-a-snap snack, or breakfast treat (if you double/triple the recipe) that’s as much fun to make as it is to eat! You end up with a slice with pretty, circular patterns, that’s soft and sweet on the top, and crisp at the bottom!”


  • 1slicewhole wheat bread
  • 1/2 smallripe banana
  • 1/8 teaspooncinnamon( or, a pinch)
  • Directions

  • Heat a nonstick griddle over a low to medium flame, and place the bread slice on it.
  • Let it just lie there for about a minute (you can slice the banana now!).
  • Now carefully cover the bread with the sliced banana discs, overlapping if necessary, and sprinkle the cinnamon over this.
  • Using a flat spoon or ladle, gently press the bread slice with with back-to-front movements (you will see part of the banana slices sinking into the bread and the cinnamon merging with the bananas).
  • When the bottom of the bread slice is well browned, remove from the griddle and eat immediately!

  • “Oh yum! This was great. My only problem was that I used Potato bread and ended up burning the bottom a little (but it was still delicious!), so my suggestion for white bread users is: follow the instructions above, and when the bottom is brown take the sandwich off and if the bananas are still intact, microwave for a couple of secs. 🙂 Delicious! 2 thumbs up”

  • “Easy, tasty, and quick.”

  • “What a treat!. This is easy, quick, healthy, inexpensive and delicious so five stars from me. I used homemade wholegrain bread which is a bit more robust – the bananas didn’t smush in very much. I flipped my slices instead for about 20 seconds to soften the bananas — delicious!Thank you for posting.”

  • “This is an easy and fast snack to make.It may also have health benefits, as it may improve blood glucose and cholesterol levels in people with Type 2 diabetes.So I always give my cinnamon container an extra shake on my food.Made for *Zaar Cookbooks Tag 2009* game”

  • “When I don’t know what to have for breakfast, this is what I have!With some milky Chai tea, it makes a pretty satisfying meal.I usually shove a whole small banana on there…love bananas.If I need it done quicker than quick, I just use the toaster oven and smoosh the banana into the bread with the side of my knife.Yum.”

  • “Good diabetic breakfast element for DH, we just learned he is diabetic a week ago. Thanks.”

  • “So yummy!! I usually toast the bread, sprinkle with cinn/Splenda & cut up a banana to go on top, but this brought it to a whole new level. The bread was nice & crispy, the banana was warm & sweet-can’t say enough good things about it. Came together in a snap, too. Thank u for the good directions, too-always helps!”

  • “Fantastic!! This was really simple but delcious! I really like the way you prepare this. I almost just sliced the bananas and put cinnamon on them but then i ran back to my computer and I read the directions(not just the ingridents this time!)Thanks for the recipe!”

  • “This was REALLY YUMMY! I kind of combined this recipe with my Cottage Cheese Banana Breakfast Delight #17475 by adding cottage cheese and sugar substitute to the top after letting this cool just a bit. Thanks for a great new (and healthy) breakfast idea!~Manda”

  • “I’ve been doing this for years but not in a griddle. Thanks for the idea!I’ve always put it in the sandwich toaster, with some brown sugar sprinkled on top of the bananas and cinnamon.My kids love it!!”

  • “I was, frankly, surprised by how much I enjoyed this.When you push the bananas down into the bread like that they break up just a tad and get all warm and creamy.Along with the crunchy wheat bread this is excellent and very healthy!Thanks!”
