Ingredients

For the peanut puree:

2 cups roasted unsalted peanuts

1/4 cup peanut oil

For the bread:

2 eggs, beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 cup heavy cream

8 slices banana bread

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

For the bananas:

2 ripe bananas

1 cup panko (Japanese) bread crumbs

1/4 cup peanut oil

4 teaspoons honey

Directions

  1. For the peanut puree: Place the peanuts in 1/4 cup of peanut oil in a small saute pan and heat for 3 minutes at low heat. Transfer to a blender and puree until smooth.
  2. For the bread: Mix eggs, vanilla and heavy cream together in a bowl. Dip banana bread into the mixture. Melt butter in a nonstick pan and cook banana bread for 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Place bread on a paper towel and reserve.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
