Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 large banana, peeled and halved lengthwise
  • One 1 ½-ounce slice rye bread, toasted
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat peanut butter

Directions

Preheat the broiler with the rack 4 inches from the heat source.

Place the sugar on a plate and dip the cut sides of the banana in sugar. Arrange the banana cut side up on a baking sheet or in a broiler-proof baking dish and broil 3-5 minutes, rotating the sheet often, until the banana is browned. Spread the toast with peanut butter and top with the banana.

Banana Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Banana Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
