oooh you discovered the elusive banana and peanut butter and sandwich, where ever did you come up with such a crazy idea?

But in all seriousness, bananas and peanut butter and jelly on whole wheat bread, food I can never get sick of. didn't even really like bananas at the start of this year. Now I feel a void when I don't eat one every day.
Have you tried smuckers "100%" jelly? No added sugar, just fruit.

On toast that concoction is fantastic.

My mom tricked me into thinking banana and peanut butter sandwiches were sweet treats comparable to candy as a kid. She added a little honey, but not too much. Ever since I've been hooked... I eat these whenever I have bananas and peanut butter.. which is all the time.

I've yet to try it with jelly also.

Also, I recommend trying Fluffernutters if you want a truly sweet treat.. not all the way healthy, but Jet-Puffed marshmallow cream isn't terrible for you:

Do creamy natural peanut butter and marshmallow cream on white bread... or wheat. But white bread is what really makes it taste like candy. xD Tasty treat!

You guys are really making me hungry! How do bananas stack up as far as sugar goes? I've heard that they are one of the fruits w/ the highest sugar content.

Seems there are some differences...
225g of banana = 28g sugar
126g of banana = 25g sugar

Bananas taste sweeter to me when they are ripe or over ripe (large brown spots) opposed to under (with a little green); I'm not sure what goes on inside the banana during the ripening stage, but perhaps the ratio of g(banana) to g(sugar) decreases?

Yeah that's pretty high in sugar - but BananaLand sounds like a fun place!

This was interesting:
A banana is one of the few fruits that also contains the complex carbohydrates found in grains, cereals and vegetables, which is why it's such a good source of energy.

If you use Light Wheat Bread you can drop the cals for those from 140 to 80.

That would take the whole thing to 330 cals.

YES! Nutella all the way! What I love to eat... spread nutella and peanut butter on a slice of bread, then evenly chop a banana into several little pieces, and place them all over that slice of bread. yum.

This is actually what happens. I don't know the details of the process but basically the complex carbs in a green banana are broken down into simple sugars as the banana ripens.
