23 before 24: Chocolate Peanut Butter Baked Bananas
I've been hardcore craving PB&J sandwiches lately. Back in the day I used to make so many peanut butter sandwich varieties, like peanut butter and banana; peanut butter, jelly, and banana; peanut butter, banana, and melted chocolate; and the ultimate sandwich, peanut butter, jelly, banana, and melted chocolate. OMGosh, I'll stop, this is making me hungry.
Moving on, as much as I'd like to make a PB&J sandwich, I've been neglecting to buy bread for the past couple of months and trying to get my whole grains elsewhere. So when I saw this post on Chalk White Arrow, I knew I had to have it in my mouth ASAP.
If you like lots of pictures like myself, here are the steps picture by picture.
One banana, a tablespoon of PB and small handful of chocolate chips.
Cut the banana in half.
Spread the peanut butter (or any nut butter you'd like).
Top with chocolate chips. In this case I only wanted half with chocolate, because I'm not a huge chocolate fan.
Bake in the oven for 10 min at 350 degrees.
After I took them out, I decided to add cold strawberry jam to the other banana, because I love the dynamic of cold and warm together (kinda like a warm hamburger with cold lettuce and tomato.. mmm).
And then, I enjoyed every bite.. besides the last few. I get full really fast.
Teehee, this recipe makes me smile. I hope it makes you smile too!
