  1. pb, banana and honey sandwiches were in my lunch box a lot in grade school, oh how I miss that lovely combo! But, the caramelized bananas are an even sweeter addition! So creative 🙂

  2. Do you think you could make ahead the caramelized banana slices and use the next morning for breakfast? If so how long do you think they would still be good?

    1. Hi Tina! Yes, just store them in a sealed container in the refrigerator and reheat on a microwave-safe plate for about a minute in the microwave. They’ll keep well for 2-3 days. Enjoy!
