Starting the morning with chocolate? It sure sounds like a dream, but the idea is entirely viable with this chocolate almond toastie wedged with banana. Apply a sprinkle of cinnamon to the sourdough bread before serving for a hint of fragrance and extra sweetness, so you can have the perfect treat to go with a hot cup of tea of coffee.
- 4 square slices packaged sourdough bread (180 g)
- 10 g butter, softened
- 2 tbsps almond butter
- 1 tsp cacao powder
- 2 tsps rice malt syrup
- 1 medium banana (180 g), sliced thinly
- ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
Spread one side of each bread slice with butter.
Stir almond butter, cacao and syrup in a small bowl until smooth.
Place two slices of bread buttered-side-down on a board; spread half the almond butter mixture on each slice, then top with banana, leaving a 1 cm border. Top with remaining bread slices, buttered-side-up.
Cook sandwiches in jaffle maker for 5 mins or until golden. Serve cut in half, dusted with cinnamon.
