The Munchies: Nutella Banana Melt

 Active time: 5 min Cook time: 3 min Serves: 1

 

No one ever kicked Nutella out of bread. This decadent marriage of salty and sweet is dangerously addictive. Enjoy as an indulgent, late-night snack or pair with coffee to get your day off to a sweet start. Fair warning: This is a favorite among the under-12 set. And we’re cool with that because … fruit! Just don’t expect them to sit still after they eat it.

Equipment

Ingredients:

  • 2 slices cinnamon swirl or any cinnamon raisin bread
  • 2 Tbsp. Nutella (or any chocolate hazelnut spread)
  • ½ banana, sliced 
  • 2 Tbs. chopped salted peanuts, plus more for serving
  • Whipped cream/caramel sauce for serving

Directions:

BUILD IT.

  • Place the slices of bread, side by side. Spread 1 Tbs. of Nutella on each slice of bread to the edges.
  • On one slice of bread, add the sliced banana in one layer.
  • Sprinkle with 2 Tbs. of chopped nuts. Place the remaining piece of bread on top with the Nutella on the inside.
  • Press the sandwich together.

     

TOAST IT.

  • Now place it in the panini press and close and lock the press. Wipe around the outside of the press to clean off any drips with a paper towel. 
  • Place the filled Panini Press into the right slot of your Revolution Toaster with the handles facing out.
Now make your next selection based on the model you have:

Introducing the Revolution Panini Press

Because big appliances are a big pain.

We’re going to assume we don’t need to sell you on the idea of a panini. Who doesn’t love the melty-deliciousness of a pressed sandwich, right? But big appliances are, well, a big pain. You need to lug them out, they can be hard to clean and they take up valuable counter space. This panini attachment is our solution: Simple, compact and super easy to use it gives you the sandwiches you love, minus the mess and hassle you don’t.

  • Heats up quickly: Deliver the panini of your dreams in seconds not minutes. (Learn more about our safe, eco-friendly InstaGLO technology here!)
  • Easy to clean: Wipe down with a sponge or pop it in the dishwasher.
  • Small footprint: Stash it with your coffee, in your bread box or just sit it in the toaster when not in use.

Faster. Smarter. Tastier.
