Writing about what feeds me.

Late-night Madness (Peanut Butter & Jelly Banana Split)

Simple story:  Arnel came home with some Breyer’s Vanilla Ice Cream.  We had just finished watching the David Fincher/Daniel Craig version of “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” and I was about to make a PB&J with my whole wheat English muffins (as tends to be my usual late-night snack these days).  I looked at our fruit basket and commented on how the bananas, although still slightly green, are fully ripe and ready to eat.  A few small wheels and cogs turned in my brain…

…I toasted my English muffin twice to make it extra crispy (it charred a little on one edge).

I spread peanut butter on one half and lots of whole-fruit raspberry jelly on the other, slapped the sides together and then, deciding that this experiment was far too interesting to not share, cut the mini sandwich in half.

I pulled the two sides of the half sandwiches apart and laid them across from each other, positioning a half of a banana in the middle.

A few small scoops of Breyer’s Vanilla to hug both sides and the top of the banana, and Voila!!

Arnel said he’d definitely eat it again!! =)

– Peanut Butter
– Whole-Fruit Jelly
– Breyer’s Vanilla Ice Cream
– (Whole wheat) English muffin
– Banana

– Chocolate sauce on top would be a nice addition, at least as far as aesthetics (to me) are concerned.
– The extra crispy, toastiness of the bread is key.  A Belgian waffle would be an AMAZING substitute!
– Whipped cream and some chopped nuts would of course set this off completely as a true “banana split”… well, then again, you could also split the banana in half too?
