Waffles with syrup are a classic breakfast option, but I think it’s time we move on from settling for just any old topping. Isn’t there more out there for a waffle than a life of endless sugary tree sap?
I set out on a mission to find out in Wake Forest’s very own dining hall, and thus the peanut butter and banana waffle panini was born. A much-needed spin on a childhood favorite, the marriage between waffles and paninis is nothing less than a college miracle.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
1 cup waffle batter
2 packets peanut butter
1 medium banana
1. Using your dining hall’s waffle maker, fill up a cup with waffle batter. Pour into waffle maker and let waffle cook until it’s done.
2. While the waffle is cooking, gather a banana and 2 packets of peanut butter and cut the banana into thin slices.
3. When your waffle is done, place it on a plate and spread peanut butter on one half.
4. Place banana slices on top of the peanut butter.
5. Fold in half and panini press your waffle sandwich to get the peanut butter deliciously melted and to make your sandwich a little less “bready.”
6. Voilà, your very own peanut butter and banana waffle sandwich.
