Oooey gooey chocolate amazingness. That should be the name of this sandwich. If you like desserts, then you have to drop what you are doing and go make this right now!
I consider this a breakfast sandwich. Sometimes I’m a “savory potatoes and veggies” kind of breakfast person… and sometimes I’m a “eat a whole box of donuts” kind of breakfast person. This sweet sandwich falls under the latter category. Although there is a banana in it, so it’s totally healthy. 😉
A long long time ago, I figured out that chocolate goes great with nuts… and fruit (and everything, really). So this is just a combination of those things. I was craving chocolate and hazelnuts, and happened to find this awesome Chocolate Hazelnut Butter Blend. That’s its name: Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter Blend. And it’s vegan. Booyah! It also has a little bit of almonds in it, which is my 2nd favorite nut to eat with chocolate. Justin, you are a genius.
So while coming up with this delicious decadent sandwich, I had to decide on a suitable bread. I will say, you could definitely make this on some plain white bread. But if you want to do it up right, put it on some cinnamon raisin bread. Oh yeah. Savageness accomplished. If you are vegan, it is easier to find this bread in the bakery section of your supermarket. For some reason, the prepackaged bread usually contains milk. But we want freshly baked bread anyway. Because QUALITY.
Oh… did I mention that I fried this bad boy up? Like you would a grilled cheese… slap some “butter” on each side (I use Earth Balance) and fry it up on the stove. That’s what makes it super melty. And super melty equals super good. I licked my fingers, like, 20 times. Don’t tell.
So without further ado, I give you the recipe for
Ooey Gooey Chocolate Amazingness Chocolate Hazelnut Banana Sandwich (on Cinnamon Raisin Bread).
Chocolate Hazelnut Banana Sandwich
Ooey Gooey Awesomeness between two slices. Put Chocolate Hazelnut butter mixed with banana on cinnamon raisin bread and fry it up to make the most delicious dessert or breakfast sandwich ever! And it's vegan.
- 2 slices cinnamon raisin bread
- 2-3 tbsp Justin's Chocolate Hazelnut Butter Blend
- 1 banana, sliced
- 1-2 tbsp buttery spread (Earth Balance)
Heat up a pan over medium high heat.
Spread the chocolate hazelnut butter on both slices of bread.
Layer the banana slices on one slice and then put the pieces together. So the sandwich should be bread, chocolate hazelnut, banana, chocolate hazelnut, bread.
Spread half the buttery spread on one side of sandwich. Put that side down onto the pan.
Once toasty, spread the buttery spread on the other side and flip.
Once both sides are toasty, take out of the pan and eat!
