Peanut butter and banana is one of the greatest combinations. And while the classic banana slathered with a little peanut butter is a reliable and scrumptious treat, sometimes we need to get a little ~wild~ and switch things up in our lives.

I’ve searched through the Spoon U archives for the best peanut butter and banana combinations so all of us PB&B lovers can explore our options and potentially find ourselves with a new favorite rendition on the great classic.

IT’S PEANUT BUTTER JELLY (and banana) TIME. This recipe puts a twist on the CLASSIC peanut butter and banana boat by adding jelly for a little extra sweetness and some granola for crunch in addition to baking it at the end. It’s basically a banana split without the banana.
