I hope you have a jar of peanut butter nearby. Today is the last day of November – a month best known for Thanksgiving and runaway beards. But somewhere, some genius decided to make November National Peanut Butter Month. So holster that peanut butter jar and get ready for one of my most infamous recipes. Over 4 years ago, I awoke and ventured to the kitchen to make some oatmeal. Along my way, I remembered there were some eggs I needed to use. An omelet (also spelled “omelette”, did you know that?) was the obvious solution but I had nothing to put in it. My breakfast always contains peanut butter so I needed to incorporate it into the omelet somehow. The obvious next ingredient was banana. So I sliced some banana into the eggs and lathered peanut butter inside – a culinary masterpiece!


2-3 eggs (1/2 – 3/4 cup egg substitute)
1 banana, in slices
2T chunky or creamy natural peanut butter
pinch of sugar


1. Place a medium sized skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Spray with cooking spray and pour in the eggs.

2. Sprinkle some sugar into the eggs and place sliced bananas into pan as demonstrated below:

3. Lift the sides of the omelet up to allow the still-liquid eggs to flow underneath and cook. After a few minutes, flip the omelet over with a large spatula.

4. Spread a generous coating of peanut butter onto one half of the omelet as shown below. Fold the omelet over and allow to cook for another minute. Flip it onto the other side for one last minute and serve!

Additional Info:

This is probably a very different flavor combo than you’re used to. But it’s also surprisingly good! I always use ketchup with my eggs but I don’t think it makes sense in this situation. But a nice strawberry or apricot jelly might work well as a dipping sauce.

    If you want to start baking bread, id first try out a recipe with out alterations. In the bread bible, you could try the cracked wheat loaf, ten-grain torpedo, or possibly the sourdough wheat bread. Which all sound pretty healthy.

    Hi! This is our first time here and it’s awesome! What a fun site and all your peanut butter recipes rock! We’ll have to keep your recipes in mind when we decide to do a peanut butter video! Thanks!

    Hi– thanks for your comment on my blog about the chocolate bread! I’m not sure about using whole wheat flour, especially since the bread is already quite dense to begin with. I’d suggest using white whole wheat flour with some bread flour. But again, I haven’t tried that, it’s just a suggestion. Let me know how it goes if you do try! That bread was really good, I need to make it again soon.

  4. ChocolateCoveredVegan says:

    Wow, a blog all about peanut butter?! I can’t think of anything better– I love peanut butter :o). Peanut butter and bananas, peanut butter and chocolate, peanut butter and jelly… the list goes on and on!

    Thanks for the sweet comments on my blog. Yes, purple cauliflower tastes the same as regular, and it looks so much prettier too!

  5. Simply...Gluten-free says:

    Love your blog! How cool is it to have a whole blog on peanut butter! You should call this the Elvis Omelette!

  6. Nick says:

    Thanks for all the great comments. I hope you enjoy and benefit from my addiction to peanut butter =). My goal is to keep the peanut butter content of this blog to at least 75%. Overall it’s a blog for healthy eating but by peanut butter is by far the shining glory of my culinary crafts.

    The Elvis Omelette is an excellent name for it!

  7. aforkfulofspaghetti says:

    As a die-hard PB fan, I’m going to have to give this a try!

  8. Nick says:

    I urge you to try it! It is a different experience but quite a tasty one!

  9. Sera says:

    Wow, this looks so yummy! Keep the awesome recipes coming! :)

  10. A. Grace says:

    i’ll be honest, i was totally skeptical of this recipe and had pretty much decided that i’d be wasting my perfectly brown-spotted banana, a bit of peanut butter, and a couple of eggs in making this.

    i was wrong, so very wrong. i practically licked my plate clean and contemplated making another. thanks for the stellar idea–i’ll never doubt you again!

  11. Anonymous says:

    yeah nick, you should name this after elvis, and serve it on jan 8th and aug 16th! but jan 8th has passed. so aug 16 is comming up!

  12. Gregg Taliercio says:

    Just made this over the weekend and all I can say is what a treat. Who said omelete’s have to be boring. I didn’t have any honey so I used some Agave Nectar. Worked out great.

  13. Simply...Gluten-free says:

    All I can say is YUM, YUM, YUM!

  14. Anonymous says:

    This was FANTASTIC …. not sure how I ended up at this blog, but so glad I did. Only wished I had some jelly around, as it would have made a great condiment. Try it!

  15. Nick says:

    All, I’m so glad you’re all enjoying it! This was a real spur-of-the-moment recipe that just worked out so well. So far at least 3 readers have tried and loved this. Thanks for the positive reviews guys!

  16. mac says:

    after finding this recipe, i ate pb and banana omelets for three mornings straight. YUMMY!

    Thanks for letting me know, that’s some positive feedback for this omelet! ~ Nick

  17. Amber Shea says:

    This is definitely an example of “don’t knock it till you’ve tried it!” I used to make something similar – I’d make an “egg pancake” (basically an unfolded omelette) that I sprinkled with cinnamon sugar before flipping it. Then I ate it with sugar-free syrup. Mmm! If I still ate eggs, I’d certainly give it a try with PB :]

    It’s true, several people have said how much they enjoy this recipe, I’ll have to try it with some cinnamon too, thanks! ~ Nick

  18. Justine says:

    This is an eggcellant idea for a low carb Pb and banana sammie. Thanx!!

    Haha thanks, hope you enjoy it =) ~ Nick

  19. Chuck says:

    I’ve done the bananas in the scrambled, but havent tried it with peanut butter yet–although it would obviously be awesome. The bananas really give a nice sweetness to an already delicious savory meal

  20. Camille says:

    My dad made something similar to this growing up, but I never knew how he did it.. I always lose the peanut butter because it gets so runny. I guess I should try a name brand ?

    • Nick says:

      Yes, a natural peanut butter will fall out easier, but an easy workaround is to just add the bananas to the omelet and when it’s done, transfer it to the plate. Then spread the peanut butter on top and fold it in half. The peanut butter will melt quickly and any peanut butter that squeezes out can be used to dip each bite into =). But alternatively, a Skippy or similar peanut butter will hold it’s shape better.

    Fellow health freak/dude/peanut butter addict here..You, my friend, are the man. Been experimenting with PB recipes ever since I fell in love with PB oatmeal after wrestling season ended.

  22. Matthew says:

    Dude…I grew up in LI too, seriously crazy. What town were you in?

  23. T says:

    it was gross lol

    • Nick says:

      Really? Did you put anything on it? Syrup? Ketchup? Both?

      • T says:

        I didn’t add anything except some olive oil. It got burned a bit for some reason though. I think it was the bananas…

        • Nick says:

          Hmm, well the bananas should get browned/blackened but that’s a delicious caramelization thing.

          Overall, it’s meant to be more sweet than savory so I suggest dipping it in a little syrup or strawberry jam next time!

        • Lovey says:

          Not sure how old these posts are but in case anyone else has this problem I’d like to suggest mashing the banana and blending it into the egg before cooking. I’ve always made mine this way and it has never blackened or burned. I also find that since the banana is even throughout the mixture, I have never needed any added sugar. Although I’m now very tempted to add a little maple syrup coated bacon to stuff it; sounds delicious! Thanks for the idea Mr. Maxx. Enjoy your omelettes everyone!

          • Nick says:

            Mashing the banana into the eggs? That’s an interesting idea…I still haven’t tried the maple syrup and bacon yet, I need to get on it soon!

  24. Kara says:

    This is amazing. I’m a swimmer so this had everything I needed, protein and bananas. I showed it so my coach and he loved it. It’s a team favorite.

    • Nick says:

      Wow, that’s great to hear! I’m so glad everyone enjoys it! When I first made it, I rememeber thinking how it was a perfect combination of ingredients – thankfully it tasted good too!

  25. Hilary says:

    omg i made this this morning and it was DELICIOUS!!! i’m really bad at omelets so mine didn’t look very pretty but the deliciousness made up for it. interesting combo but very very good

    • Nick says:

      Haha, thanks so much for leaving a comment on this – I still can’t get over how many people like this recipe! I’ve never gotten so many positive responses on any other recipe!

  26. Mr. Maxx says:

    To this Omelet I added a touch of Honey and Bacon Bits. I call it the ELVIS OMELET and it’s delicious! Try it you won’t be disappointed.

  27. Christian Rene Friborg says:

    My kids will surely love this new recipe. Thanks for this one.

  28. Shawn says:

    Awesome i just did a search online to see i have been doing peanut butter omelettes for some time but never thought to add banana. Just did and it was even better which i didnt think was possible.

  29. mada says:

    I tried it and it was really good! I just mixed everything… :P It’s the first time I bought some peanut butter and I wanted to mix it into a recipe.It happened that what I had in the house were exactly banana and eggs. :) Thanks!
