Prep time: 20 mins
Cook time: 8 mins
Total time: 28 mins
  • 1 apple
  • 4 tablespoon unsalted butter, divided
  • 1½ tablespoons sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup thick cut oats
  • 4 slices of thick cut bread
  • peanut butter
  • 1 banana, sliced in half and then lengthwise into four pieces
  1. Cut the apple into medium size pieces. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a small saucepan. Sauté the apple with sugar and cinnamon. Cover and cook until the apple pieces are soft, 8-10 minutes. Uncover and cook until the juice has evaporated. Set aside to cool.
  2. Beat the eggs on a plate that has a lip. Set aside.
  3. Spread the oats out onto a plate that has a lip and set aside.
  4. Spread peanut butter over one slice of bread. Place half of the cooled apples over the peanut butter. Top with half of the sliced bananas.
  5. Top with the other slice of bread. Dredge the sandwich in the eggs and then coat with the oats.
  6. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a pan large enough to hold the sandwich. Place the sandwich in the pan and cook over medium heat, covered, until the oats are toasty brown. Use two spatulas to flip the sandwich but add 1 tablespoon butter to the pan before placing the flipped sandwich back into the pan. Cover and cook until the oats are toasty brown.
  7. Remove from the pan, cut in half and serve.
Additional time is needed for the apples to cool.
