If you have never considered putting chocolate and banana together, I highly recommend it. There is something about that sweet banana flavor mixed with decadent chocolate that makes these cookies amazing. The best part is that they are not only delicious, but they are healthy and packed full of nutrients. So go ahead, make a batch, and try to eat just one!
It’s true when they say that some sandwiches are just more fun to eat without the crust. Do they say that? I’ll say that! These three sandwiches are all different and all equally delicious. Perfect for children and adults alike. Create a sandwich bar and allow everyone to make their favorite version. I’ve given you three varieties to start with, but there are many more options that would also be fun to try. With whole wheat bread and all natural peanut butter these crustless sandwiches are a great lunch option any day of the week!
This Almond Cashew Butter Banana Bread is easy to make and is full of nutty and rich flavor. It is made with whole-wheat flour and is moist and delicious!
Banana bread is a classic dish that seems to disappear almost immediately every time that it is made. Everyone loves it from grandmas to moms and dads and even young children. There is something about a piece of fresh baked banana bread that is so delicious, it is hard to just have one piece.
This banana bread is made healthier with whole-wheat flour and uses less sugar that many traditional recipes. It also features Bestie Almond and Cashew Butter which is a delicious new product from Peanut Butter & Co. There are only three ingredients and has no added sugar. The nut butter adds a rich and creamy flavor to the banana bread. Drizzle extra nut butter on top and spread a warm piece of banana bread with it for the most delicious and indulgent taste while actually being quite nutritious.
When the weather is too hot to cook but you still want a delicious and filling breakfast, these banana split overnight oats are an awesome option. Made to taste like your favorite dessert, you will wonder whether you are eating breakfast or dessert.
Oats are packed with fiber and nutrients and help keep you full. The milk and yogurt have calcium and protein. The fruit has fiber and vitamins and the chocolate, well, that is just for fun! This overnight oats recipe is drizzled with Bestie Almond & Cashew Butter instead of hot fudge or caramel for a more nutritious, yet still delicious topping.
Rules are made to be broken, which is why I love this peanut butter-infused banana cream pie! Luscious and creamy as ever, this recipe shakes up the classic pie by adding a layer of The Bee’s Knees peanut butter beneath a traditional cream filling, creating a silky, sumptuous combo that’s bound to get heads turning! And with a buttery vanilla wafer crust, fat chunks of banana, and a mountain of whipped cream, this classic meets modern pie will be your new holiday favorite.
I’m not much of a morning person, so it’s not unusual for me to end up grabbing a quick breakfast on my way into work. The only problem with that approach is that most of the options available to me are pretty unhealthy – they’re either full of sodium, full of sugar, full of fat, or all of the above.
Which is why this make-ahead oatmeal is so fantastic. I just need to set aside a half-hour during the weekend to cook up a big batch of steel-cut oats and portion it out into heat-proof mason jars, and then it’s as easy as grabbing a jar as I’m dashing out to work in the morning.
I try to change up the flavors from one week to the next, just for the sake of variety, but this combo of banana and peanut butter shows up frequently in the rotation. I like the touch of sweetness and spice that the Cinnamon Raisin Swirl peanut butter adds, but feel free to switch up with your favorite Peanut Butter and Co flavor!
Eating healthy doesn’t have to mean going hungry, this breakfast parfait is gluten free, grain free, and packed with protein to keep you full until lunch. The creamy peanut butter layers are topped with blueberries, slices of banana, and sprinkled with crushed peanuts for an addictive crunch. It’s decadent, yet healthy and (most importantly when you’re stumbling around trying to figure out breakfast in the morning) it’s a snap to throw together.
This beautiful layer cake made up of peanut butter cakes layered together with peanut butter frosting, sliced bananas and caramel is a dessert Elvis Presley certainly would have approved of. And after one decadent bite I’m completely sold on the peanut butter and banana combination. The sweet and salty caramel certainly doesn’t hurt either.
The cake is easy to assemble, thanks to its unpolished presentation. Leaving the sides unfrosted allows you to see all of the fun layers, and lets the caramel drip down the sides. The caramel will keep on dripping, however, so it’s best served immediately or stored in the fridge.
This scrumptious banana bread gets a boost of sweetness and a hint of nutty flavor with the addition of our honey peanut butter. A generous sprinkle of coarsely chopped peanuts on top provides the moist bread an irresistible contrast of texture you’ll want to gobble up. This is one recipe you’ll want to save your overripe bananas for!
Chex Mix is a super versatile ingredient, especially when it comes to party snacks. In this version, we added peanut butter, bacon, and banana chips for an Elvis-inspired array of flavors. The sweet honey and brown sugar syrup gets baked right into the cereal and complements the mix-ins perfectly!
Why should dinner get all the enchilada fun? These dessert enchiladas are stuffed with bananas and a cream cheese-peanut butter spread before being smothered in a rich peanut butter sauce. Top with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream for a fun and different dessert the whole family will love.
When I was a little girl every lunch ended with dessert — and that dessert was a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on white bread. These days lunch is typically Crunch Time peanut butter on whole wheat bread, but sometimes you just need something a bit on the sweeter side.
I’m not quite sure if this qualifies as a sandwich or dessert, but let’s just call it “lunch.” The filling for these quesadillas is so delicious that you will welcome the extra that it makes and use it as a dip for everything- fruit, cookies, crackers, or just straight from the bowl with a spoon.
Smooth cream cheese, bananas, peanut butter, and chocolate chips mix together for a melty creamy sweet concoction that is out of this world.
This decadent dessert is the love child of two southern favorites: a PB & Banana Sandwich and Banana Pudding. As if by magic, the rich homemade peanut butter pudding binds slices of pound cake and bananas together like a country-style tiramisu.
After a day in the fridge, all the elements meld together, with the cake absorbing moisture and flavor from the pudding, while the bananas become tender and ripe. Scooped into a bowl, it may look a mess, but with crunchy bits of peanut brittle on top it’s a heavenly dessert.
This peanut butter banana pudding is perfect for parties and cookouts because you can make it in one bowl and scoop it out at the table. Best of all, since it needs to be made a day in advance, it frees you up to enjoy dinner and dessert with your guests.
In memory of Elvis Presley who passed away on this day back in 1977, I’ve whipped up this decadent cake which brings together a few favorite peanut butter pairings like chocolate, caramel and bananas. It’s pretty enough for a party, and for sure one Elvis would have enjoyed!
Elvis Presley was inducted in the U.S. Army on March 24. To help celebrate this milestone with Peanut Butter & Co., I came up with this version of the Elvis cupcake.
Elvis is famously known for his penchant for butter fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches. If you’ve never had one, it’s an alluring combination of buttery caramelized bread sandwiching a gooey melted layer of peanut butter and fresh bananas. The melding of crispy fried carbs with the sweet tropical banana and nutty peanut butter is a match made in heaven and it’s no wonder that it was one of the King’s favorite foods.
In this updated homage, I made a batch of moist banana cupcakes, which are topped with a satiny smooth peanut butter buttercream that’s rich and creamy but not too sweet. Like the sandwich they’re based on, the sweet banana cupcake and nutty frosting complement each other perfectly. But I couldn’t just stop there. If you remember the sandwich, it’s fried in butter…
I briefly contemplated doing something crazy, like battering and frying the whole cupcake, but the angel in my head (also known as my cardiologist) overruled the devil and I ended up with something that kept truer to the sandwich this cupcake was based on. I fried some large white bread crumbs in butter, then sprinkled the crispy, golden brown morsels over the buttercream for a crispy finish.
Peanut butter, honey, bananas, bourbon and bacon, an unorthodox combination, sure, but it makes for a cake fit for a king, specifically the King of Rock and Roll. I’ve been a fan of the Elvis sandwich–bananas, honey, peanut butter and bacon grilled on a sandwich since college when I first tried it at Peanut Butter and Co.’s sandwich shop in Greenwich Village. A couple of years ago, I decided to whip up some Elvis-inspired cupcakes in honor of my friend and fellow blogger, Rachel of Cupcakes Take the Cake’s birthday. I created a moist banana cake and topped it with a nice peanut butter buttercream frosting and plenty of candied bacon “sprinkles.” Since then I’ve improved upon the recipe and adapted it into a truly decadent banana triple layer cake made with bourbon, fried bananas, plenty of those bacon sprinkles and chopped peanuts. Warning: this cake is habit forming. Serve with a glass of cold milk (or a shot of stiff bourbon) and enjoy with your favorite Elvis album. Happy Birthday to the King!
