Peanut Butter and Banana Sweet Toast

Here is a SWEET twist to the classic peanut butter and banana toast.  I decided to pack all my favorite things onto one piece of toast and it really was delicious. I am a huge fan of any toast: avocado toast, Nutella toast, buttery toast, and of course…Peanut butter and banana toast.
