Monkey Boy Bread

November 11, 2009

Bananas and peanut butter were made for each other. Since the dawn of time, children and adults alike have enjoyed this combination. The Elvis era brought a renaissance to the peanut butter banana combination and years later Saratoga Peanut Butter Company made it even more convenient: fitting the flavors of natural roasted peanuts, plump juicy raisins and the essence of banana into individual jars. Other than spreading it on everything imaginable, “Monkey Boy” doubles as a fantastic baking ingredient.

Featuring Monkey Boy peanut butter, this moist banana bread is full of flavor and makes the perfect snack for anyone “Ape” for this classic combination
