Why Smash The Banana?

Not solely does smashing your banana make this toast barely simpler to eat (no extra bananas falling into your lap!) however the smashing breaks down the banana cells in such a method that (for my part) it’s sweeter and softer.

Or you would say “fluffier!”

How To smash banana on toast

Lots of people on the web put their peanut butter down first and put banana slices on high.

However I feel the peanut butter will get hidden in there!

So I begin my banana smash by actually mashing half a banana into my *very nicely* toasted toast with a knife.

(Clearly gentle bread may tear, however toasty toast stands up nicely to the smash knife.)

Subsequent comes the peanut butter on high – normally 1.5 tablespoons or so.

This fashion you get peanut butter taste to the max.

Subsequent I add one thing crunchy like chia seeds and coconut flakes. Granola works nicely too!

And eventually a drizzle of one thing candy. Honey is the apparent alternative, however I used my bourbon maple syrup from Nice Harvest and fell out of my chair.
