The Healthy Elvis

Fried peanut butter, banana, and bacon sandwiches, dubbed "The Elvis" after the famous singer’s penchant for the tasty concoctions, get a healthy remake in this easy recipe. For lunch, ditch the bacon and replace the PB with a more nutritious option like natural sunflower seed spread or unsalted almond butter (create your own gourmet nut butter here if you really want to impress your coworkers). Just be sure to choose one without hydrogenated oils, added sugars, or salts.

Ingredients:
2 slices whole grain bread
2 tablespoons nut butter
1 banana, sliced
1 tablespoon agave nectar

Directions:
Toast bread, then spread nut butter on both slices. Layer sliced bananas in between the bread and drizzle with agave nectar.
