Grilled Caramelized Banana And Almond Butter Sandwich

I've been on a major nut butter kick lately- almond butter, peanut butter, cashew butter- I'll take them all. This afternoon, with a little help from a local grill master (my longtime friend, Andy), I combined my latest obsession with three of my other favorite things- bananas, hearty 7-grain bread, and a hot charcoal grill- to make one outstanding lunch. The instructions for assembling a grilled caramelized banana and almond butter sandwich are as follows: (1.) Cut one large banana in three slices from top to bottom and sprinkle each with a generous amount of brown sugar; (2.) On a preheated charcoal grill, heat banana, brown sugar side down, until caramelized at the same time as two pieces of 7-grain bread (grilling both sides of each piece); (3.) Once bread has achieved desired level of doneness, remove from heat and top with almond butter and caramelized banana slices- eat open faced, or stack to make one big, delicious sandwich.
