PB & ‘nanner Spread

For the full story on this backpacking recipe, see the blog.


PB & ‘nanner Spread


  • 1 large banana, ripe
  • 1 packet peanut butter or nut/seed butter of choice (2 Tbsp worth)
  • ½ cup Grape-Nuts cereal, bagged in snack-size bag
  • 1 Tbsp raisins
  • 2 English muffins, bagels or tortillas


Peel banana, mash up in a new snack-size bag. Add in peanut or other butter, stir well, then stir in cereal. Spread on bread of choice (if using English muffins or bagels, split first). Sprinkle raisins on top.

Serves 2.


Sunbutter spread is also nice for those avoiding peanuts and nuts.

If you like breakfast a bit sweeter, consider a packet of honey or jam to add on top.

Yes, you can mash the mix up in a bowl, it is messy though. So take my hint, use a small bag to do it in!
