Chocolate-Banana Panini

Pin It




After I made those yummy potato-buttermilk rolls I decided to used them for a sweet treat as well. Bananas and chocolate are a great combo, so why not put them together in a bun? Super easy to make, this is a quick recipe that can be made at any time of the day. I used the rolls I had at home but brioche would be a good choice too.  Basically any bread that is plain (no olives, herbs).  Here it's how it's made:


Chocolate-Banana Panini Recipe:

makes 2 panini


1 banana

1 tablespoon of unsalted butter


chocolate chips

2 rolls


Peel the banana and slice it lengthwise then crosswise, making 4 pieces. Melt the butter in a skillet and sprinkle it with cinnamon. Add the bananas ad cook them just until they are browned but sill firm, turning once. Set aside, do not clean the skillet (just yet).

Split buns open and wipe the skillet's butter with them (now you can wash the skillet...).   Divide bananas into buns and top it with chocolate chips, as much as you want. Close sandwiches, butter outside of buns and place them on a hot panini maker. Grill them until chocolate has melted. Serve warm, it goes really nice with a glass of cold milk, yum!

Enjoy it!
