Grilled Banana Sandwich

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

I think I may have recreated the Grilled Banana Sandwich from Mike & Patty’s!! Welllll, I came pretty close. Theirs is still better! πŸ˜‰

Mike & Patty’s actually uses a cinnamon-sugar butter that they spread all over the bread (inside and out). Plus, they do something special to the banana slices that makes them all gooey and sweet. I guess mine is the Lazy (Wo)Man’s Grilled Banana Sandwich. πŸ˜‰


Grilled Banana Sandwich

Makes 1


  • 2 slices whole wheat bread
  • 1 banana, sliced
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon


  • Combine canola oil, brown sugar, vanilla extra, and about 1 tsp of cinnamon in a small bowl. Mix until it becomes a brown sugar paste.
  • Heat a fry pan on medium heat and coat with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Spread half of the brown sugar mixture on the outside of one piece of bread. Put the brown sugar side face down in the fry pan. Meanwhile, add the banana slices, a tiny bit of the brown sugar paste, and more cinnamon.
  • Take the second piece of bread and cover the outside with the remaining brown sugar paste. Then place it on top of the banana slices (brown sugar side facing up).
  • Press sandwich with a spatula and flip to cook the other side.
  • Cook until outside of sandwich is lightly browned and crispy.
  • Allow to cool and enjoy!


Ohmigod, this sandwich was delicious! The bread was amazing— soft yet sweet and crispy on the outside. It’s a MUST-TRY!

I also drank some iced coffee with breakfast.


Mid-morning, I snacked on a big ol’ pancake, which was leftover from Mal’s breakfast. (We did our own thing this morning.)


My hip is feeling a bit better lately, so I’m heading out for a short run now.

See ya! 😎



  1. I didn’t know you had a hip problem. That stinks πŸ™ I used to hate running in high school but had to, then I got a knee injury and my parents finally let me stop running after dealing with that for 2 years. A few years later, out of school, I started running and thought for sure the old knee injury would crop up but instead my hip started acting up. I guess our bodies don’t stop changing. I’m an expert on dealing with knee pain but what do you do about your hips??

  2. tried that grilled banana sandwich tonight, it’s the firs time i’ve ever heard of one, OH MY GOSH!!! definitely a new fav

  3. So I made the grilled banana sandwich this morning. I had already eat my oatmeal. So I asked the hubby to split it with me. His faced frowned lol – he doesn’t like trying new foods. I made it with the butter (no canola oil). It was DELICIOUS!!! The crust was the best thing ever! Even the hubby enjoyed his half of the sandwich. Thanks so much!

  4. Looks amazing, and I will try it someday, but yes, I calculated the calories, and it IS a 602 calorie treat, so go easy, y’all!

  5. I made this sandwich for breakfast today…omg so good!! And easy!! Loved the crispy outside of the bread with the soft insides! I cannot wait to make this again–I think next time I’ll make your version w/ half the oil and sugar for a taste comparison. Thanks for a great recipe!
