Dark Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter


Dk Choc Banana Peanut Butter

We finally moved over the weekend!  So while I am trying like crazy to unpack boxes before my in-laws get here this weekend, I have one more guest post for you!  Another Erin :)  Erin from The Spiffy Cookie is a great blogger, who is super supportive.  She helped out with my bake sale, has done a couple bake sales of her own, and has helped me a couple times over email.  She is a grad student working on her PhD in Biomedical Sciences.  So, not only is she super smart, but she is very talented as well.  Go tell her I said Hi after you check out this fun recipe.


Thanks so much Erin for having me today, it is such a pleasure to be here! I am also Erin, over on The Spiffy Cookie, and I have come to spread my love of peanut butter – something I know Erin can relate to.

After seeing Erin’s homemade peanut butter, I knew I had to pull out my food processor and make some for myself. But it didn’t end there. I could not resist adding some melted dark chocolate and dried banana chips into the mix. You can blame the dark chocolate peanut butter banana cookies I recently made. Because what’s better than a cookie with those three ingredients? Turning it into something spreadable.

Just imagine this spread over a warm, toasted English muffin. Or added to plain Greek yogurt.  And while we’re at it, imagine eating it straight off the spoon. Yes please! You could also use semi-sweet or milk chocolate if you prefer those over dark chocolate. I bet white chocolate would taste delicious as well!

  1. Good luck with all of the final moving tasks!

  2. Congrats on the move Erin! Good luck getting settled in. :)

    Erin/spiffy, loving this recipe! Dried banana chips in PB is so creative.. I don’t think I ever would’ve added that to my homemade nut butters. I’m intrigued! The addition of dark chocolate is spot on. Love pb/banana/chocolate!

  3. Erin, for someone who just moved, you have done quite a lot for your blog! Guest posts, a fundraiser / bake auction, etc…I don’t know how you managed all that, Erin!

    Anyway, I just want to stick my finger in that jar and lick it! Yum!

  4. Glad the move went well and thanks so much for having me here today!

  5. Hope you are settling in well! You really hit on something here – SO delicious!!
