Grilled Peanut Butter Banana Tortilla

What do you do when you have left over ripen bananas? Normally, I will bake a banana cake. But, since it’s summer, I would not want to heat up the home with the oven. Another of my favourite recipe with banana is Steamed Banana Cake but I don’t feel like having it this time round. So, I made something even simpler and sweet for lunch.


This Grilled Peanut Butter Banana Tortilla is great for snack or dessert. It is warm, gooey, sweet, nutty, crunchy and crisp. I love it so much that I had this three days in a row.

It can be messy eating this though because the filling will be squeezed out when you bite into it. At times, the natural syrup from the warm banana will dripped from the tortilla. I also find that the Nutella is more messy as it turns more liquid when heated.


  • 1 large tortilla
  • 1 ripe banana, peel and slice
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons crunchy peanut butter or Nutella

    I didn’t know where to put this comment / suggestion but I think it would make an interesting blog post for everyone here if you and Ben went to a local farmer(s) within 100 kms. (that localvore measure of sustainability) to see which places grow and sell Asian veggies (and fruits??). Surely there are producers that grow bok choy, gai lan, daikon locally in Metro Vancouver or near Abbotsford.

    Would make a great outing for your family too. 😉 Would jive with theme of “harvest” time for thanksgiving also.
