4). Roll bread up starting from the long side.
Tightly roll in a foil / wet muslin cloth and refrigerate it for 15minutes.
5). Use a sharp knife to slice the roll into bite-sized pieces perfect for a pouty mouth. 
Pinwheel is ready !! Serve Chill !! Enjoy !! Kids will love the way it looks !! 
Method - 2 (single slice):-

1). Mix peanut butter with the banana mixture, spread over the single bread slice.
2). Roll bread up starting from the long side.

Method - 3 :-

1). Spread peanut butter over both the bread slices.
2). Instead of mashed banana, you can just place the banana (without mashing) on peanut butter spread and roll away.

Notes :-

1. You can use either (two slices of the same bread)  or (one white bread and one wholemeal bread). It's just to make it look pretty and healthy for kids.
2. Choose crunchy or creamy Peanut butter of your choice.
3. You can add any kind of nuts.
4. Pinwheels can be made sweet or savory with different filling.
