English Muffin with Bruleed Banana and Peanut Butter

IMG_2477

Bananas and peanut butter!  How can you go wrong?  What surprised me was how easy this is to make.  All you need is a banana, english muffin, peanut butter, and a little brown sugar.  This is supposed to be for breakfast, but I would eat it for a snack or even dessert!  I wish I could take all the credit for delectable concoction, but I can’t.  I have adapted this recipe from Chowhound.  Thank you @chow.

Ingredients

  • 1 English muffin
  • 1 small banana
  • 3 tablespoons natural peanut butter (no added sugar)
  • 2 teaspoons packed light or dark brown sugar

Directions

  1. Heat the broiler to high and arrange a rack in the highest position.
  2. Split the english muffin and toast it very lightly in the toaster
  3. Meanwhile slice banana and mix with the brown sugar
  4. When the english muffin is lightly toasted, spread with the peanut butter
  5. Top with the bananas
  6. Place the muffins on a baking sheet and broil until the sugar is browned and caramelized, about 3 to 5 minutes. (See my NOTE)
  7. Serve immediately.

NOTE:  Watch the muffins very carefully in the broiler.  I burned mine twice before I decided to watch them carefully!  I would say 3 minutes max.  Everyone’s oven/broiler heats differently.  I guess my is extra heavy duty.  LOL

Enjoy!
