For the bananas:

Cut bananas into quarters and dip into the same egg mixture as above, then roll the bananas in the bread crumbs until well covered. In a nonstick pan, heat 1/4 cup of peanut oil until nearly smoking and fry bananas until golden brown, remove from oil and place on a paper towel as well.

For assembly:

Spread both sides of banana bread with peanut puree and layer with the fried bananas. Drizzle with 1 teaspoon of honey. Close the sandwich and slice.
