Two Peanut Butter Banana Sandwiches are ready on the chopping board | Hurry The Food Up

URRGH. If you’ve woken up on a Saturday morning with a rolling stomach, and a banging headache, then you know how essential a good hangover cure can be. Enter the peanut butter and banana sandwich.

We know that on those mornings all you wanna do is pass out again but we also know that getting some food in you can be pretty important.

We all know how hangovers are caused but we’ve been looking at various different ways of trying to reduce hangovers (without drinking less of course), through the medium of food.

Research has thrown up (haha) some interesting ideas but we believe this protein packed vegan sandwich is a true hangover cure.

Health Benefits – Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich

Very little scientific research has been conclusive but there are some nutrients which may help with a hangover. Sodium and potassium are involved in hydration, and both are important to help with rehydration after drinking alcohol – it’s thought that most of the symptoms of a hangover are due to dehydration. Although the evidence isn’t conclusive, cysteine, might help with a hangover too.

So we tried and tested our very own vegan peanut butter sandwich/hangover cure.

The banana takes care of the potassium, the peanut butter has salt in it (if it doesn’t, you can always add a pinch) and whole wheat bread contains cysteine, making this peanut butter banana sandwich the ideal choice.

On top of the hangover specific benefits, this banana breakfast recipe is full of protein. As the vegans out there probably know, peanut butter is a fantastic source of protein.

Packed with protein

What you might not know is that bread can also be a good protein source! This only goes for whole grain bread, but if you choose that type of bread it will really bump up the protein levels in this vegan peanut butter and banana sandwich.

So whether this is a hangover cure or not, you can thank us when you’re feeling better or at least a little stronger with some protein in you.

If this recipe doesn’t work for you (although we’re pretty sure it will), check out our other hangover breakfast, this delicious baked egg dish.

Make your own

And finally – don’t forget you can always make your own PB! We’ve got a natural 2-ingredient peanut butter recipe right here – forget all that extra stuff you don’t need!

Not just a Hangover Cure!

Of course, don’t let all this talk of a hangover dissuade you from trying this delicious vegan peanut butter breakfast recipe on a normal day. And if you want more options, why not try these vegan breakfast ideas.

In fact, this might be my favorite breakfast sandwich recipe ever, even on a busy weekday morning.

It’s just so easy and quick to make. The only real advice you need is to remember to toss this sandwich in a pan with a little oil, once it’s all put together to make it a grilled peanut butter sandwich.

The crispiness makes this basically peanut butter and banana toast, just with bread on both sides.

If you want to shake things up you can add a little jam (or jelly) and make it a pb&j with banana. (Just promise us it won’t be an Elvis Sandwich, because that’s DEFINITELY not vegan).

But before you go changing our recipe, scroll down for a taste of our protein packed peanut butter and banana sandwich recipe.

If you came here looking for a vegan sandwich but a sweet peanut butter sandwich isn’t really your style, why not try our savory (and delicious) Avocado Sandwich.

What Our Readers are Saying

I had a rough one. So I went to the store, got the ingredients, and just trusted the science behind this recipe. Banana and Peanut Butter? Well, at least it’s healthy – unlike fish’n chips.
after eating it, it ruined partying for me. I’m not even in it for the fun anymore. I don’t enjoy drinks no more. I just get wasted as quickly as possible … looking forward to this creamy, crunchy, fruity thing of beauty.
so, cheers (in every sense of the word)

    Well it looks like if anyone I know complains of a wild hangover…. I will serve them up some of this with some LIME juice! 😉

    I don’t drink, so I don’t need to worry! ha ha.

    • Ha! I’m sure many friends will need your help on the first of January. Will be interesting to see, if they can start off with their new years resolutions right after this snack 😀

  2. I haven’t drank enough alcohol this year to get a hangover. But I don’t need any excuse to make myself this fantastic sandwich!

  3. haha, this is great! I will have to try it on Thursday. People are always trying to tell me vitamins cure hangovers, vitamins do NOT cure hangovers! I love your blog name! I just found it, excited to read 😉

    THE ELVIS!!!

  7. PB and Banana are a staple of my weekly lunches at work. Easy to make and quick.

    In the South(where I’m from), some will add a smear of mayo, but I find that to be disgusting and a ruin of a perfect sandwich.

    I don’t fry mine….sometimes toast the bread first so the peanut butter will melt when applied.

    I work at a CCTV company, often have to go to work early, so I often skip breakfast. Reading this post by my friend I have had a delicious quick meal for my morning. Thank you so much for sharing it.
