Cooking time



You can grill this sandwich like a traditional grilled cheese, but we prefer using a pie iron over the campfire or on the grill. Whichever method you choose, we hope you enjoy the sweet, warm flavors of this grilled peanut butter and banana sandwich recipe.


  • cooking spray

  • 1 Tbsp 1 mayonnaise* (optional)

  • 2 Tbsp 2 peanut butter

  • 2 slices 2 bread

  • 1 1 medium banana, thinly sliced


  • Generously spray pie iron with cooking spray.
  • Spread 1 tablespoon of peanut butter on BOTH slices of bread. (Optional: Thinly spread mayonnaise on back sides of bread for better toasting.)
  • Place one slice of bread dry-side or mayonnaise-side down in pie iron.
  • Layer banana slices, leaving space along the edges for the pie iron to seal the sandwich.
  • Close the pie iron over the sandwich. Trim any excess bread and wipe away any excess peanut butter.
  • Cook your sandwich for 4 to 7 minutes, turning pie iron halfway, until the bread is golden brown. For best results, keep the pie iron in a hot area of coals, but not the hottest area. Otherwise, the bread might burn before the filling is warmed.
  • Carefully remove the sandwich from the pie iron.
  • Cook on Grill Alternative: Preheat the grill on medium heat (300 to 400 degrees). Place pie iron directly on the grill and cook for approximately 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until the bread is golden brown



  • Mayonnaise results in a better-toasted sandwich (even better than butter). It adds a bit more crispiness to balance out the soft PB & banana filling.
