Difficulty: Easy

Things You'll Need:

  • Banana
  • Peanut Butter
  • Bread
  • Knife
  • Rolling Pin
  1. Step1
    Take two slices of bread (whole wheat,whole grain, white) and remove the crusts completely.
  2. Step2
    Take the two slices of bread and overlap them slightly. While overlapped, take a rolling pin and roll the bread slices flat. This will also connect the two slices of bread at the point of overlap.
  3. Step3
    Take the peanut butter and spread a layer (thickness to your liking)evenly over the flattened slices of bread. Be sure that the bread is covered completely.
  4. Step4
    Take a medium sized ripe banana and remove the peel completely. Lay the banana on the bread. Be sure the banana is placed at one end of the bread so that you can roll it up.
  5. Step5
    With your knife, slice "sushi" sized pieces(about 1 inch thick) and arrange on a plate. You are now ready to enjoy your sushi!
    Tips & Warnings
    • Creamy peanut butter works best
    • If the banana is curved, straighten it slightly with your hands so that it rolls well in the bread.
    • Use whole grain or whole wheat bread for optimum nutritional value.
