Sure, we just told you about this recipe in Wednesday's protein-packed recipe roundup, but we couldn't leave it out! This little cake does not have slice-of-cake stats.

Of course, it also makes an excellent late-night treat...

The King of Rock & Roll didn't have the healthiest habits, but we can't dispute the appeal of a grilled peanut butter and banana sandwich. What we can do is make it over, so it isn't a hunka-hunka fatty calories. More of a PB&J fan? This grilled take on a classic is ready and waiting.
