  • 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


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.
