Copy Desk Cookoff: Peanut Butter and ‘Nana Toast

Breakfast. It’s a meal we all know and love, some more intimately than others. I’m one of those people. You know, the person who orders breakfast at the diner at four in the morning. Or the poor bloke who kicks themselves when they sleep in too late on the weekend and miss the breakfast sandwich hours at the local bagel shop. That’s me.

I’m here with a solution for my fellow weekend nappers and breakfast connoisseurs. It’s a delicious, nutritious breakfast I miss sorely in my dorm-living daze. It’s so simple that you can’t mess it up, and it’s so delicious that you’ll kick yourself for not thinking of it before.

Ready for this?

I call it peanut butter and ‘nana toast.

You’ll need:

Two slices of your favorite toast (I like whole wheat)

Two spoonfuls of your favorite peanut butter (none of that Skippy stuff here … I go for the good, chunky natural kind)

One whole banana, cut into small slices

Honey to drizzle

Cinnamon to top

Toast your bread to crunchy, browned perfection. Spread two spoonfuls of peanut butter on each half — no more, no less. Use one half of your sliced banana on one piece of toast, and the other half on the next. Drizzle a generous layer of honey on top and sprinkle with cinnamon to garnish.

Wham bam. Simple but satisfying. You’re welcome.
