Ingredient Notes

Banana. It is a very versatile fruit packed with nutrients. Choose yellow bananas which are perfectly ripen but without brown spots and not too mushy.
Kiwi. To imitate the relish I have used kiwi that also gives the perfect acidic touch.
Whole Wheat Hot Dog Buns. I have opted for whole wheat hot dog buns because have more fiber.
Peanut Butter. I have used a smooth natural peanut butter but you can use the crunchy one too.
Roasted Peanuts. For a nice crunchy topping.
Raspberries, Sugar and Lemon Juice. Because raspberries are the perfect combination for peanut butter and why buying the raspberries jam when you can make it at home in 5 minutes.

Ingredient Substitutions

  • Banana. It is the main ingredient packed with nutrients but you may use any other fruit that you like.
  • Peanut Butter. Any other nut butter will be good as well.
  • Kiwi. It is packed with vitamin C but a good and similar substitute will be the strawberries drizzled with a splash of lemon juice.
  • Whole Wheat Hot Dog Buns. I think these work well but if needed you can substitute them with brioche buns.
  • Raspberries Jam. I like the acidity from the raspberries and are a great combo with the peanut butter and bananas but you may use any other jam that you like, preferably red.


Can I use a ready-made raspberries jam?

If you’re on the run you can use a ready-made raspberries jam but opt for a low sugar one.

Can I pack these peanut butter banana dogs?

The peanut butter and banana dogs are better consumed immediately but if you want to pack them in order to keep them from getting soggy make sure you pack the kiwi and the unpeeled banana separately.

Can I make it gluten free?

Yes, of course. To make it gluten free, you just need to use gluten-free buns.

  4. Place one peeled banana in the middle of the bun and fold the bun together. Top it up with the diced kiwi and drizzle with peanut butter and raspberries jam. And for the finishing touch add some chopped roasted peanuts.

  5. Now the only thing to do is to dive in and enjoy it!


• To drizzle the peanut butter and the raspberries jam on top of the hot dog buns you can fill and use small squeezing bottles, or zip lock bags cutting one tiny corner of the bag and squeezing out or simply using a spoon.

• As the base is a plain banana, I suggest being generous with the condiments and toppings.

• You should enjoy this dish immediately after making it because the fresh fruits will not keep well.
