  • 4 ripe but firm bananas
  • 4 tablespoons peanut butter (smooth or crunchy based on preference)
  • 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Butter or cooking spray for grilling
  • 4 brioche buns or sweet rolls

Optional Toppings:

  • Whipped cream
  • Chocolate shavings or chocolate syrup

  1. Preparing the Bananas: Peel the bananas and slice them in half lengthwise.
  2. Drizzle each banana half with honey or maple syrup and then sprinkle with cinnamon.
  3. Grilling the Bananas: Preheat the grill or a skillet over medium heat. Lightly grease with butter or cooking spray. Place the banana slices on the grill or skillet and cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until caramelized and slightly charred.
  4. Toasting the Buns: While the bananas are grilling, split the brioche buns and toast them lightly on the grill or in a toaster until golden brown.
  5. Assembling the Burgers: Spread a generous amount of peanut butter on the bottom half of each toasted bun. Place two grilled banana halves on top. If desired, add whipped cream, chocolate shavings, or chopped nuts for an extra layer of indulgence. Cap with the top half of the bun.
