The Timeless Duo: Elevate Your Peanut Butter & Banana with Crunch and Cinnamon

Posted by Nick Sheridan on

There are some flavour combinations that simply transcend trends – peanut butter and banana is one such timeless classic. It's a marriage of creamy nuttiness and sweet fruitiness, a comforting duo that's been satisfying taste buds for generations. But here at 99th Monkey, we believe there's always room for a little flavour upgrade.

Today, we're taking your classic peanut butter and banana experience to a whole new level with the introduction of crunchy texture and a touch of warming cinnamon.

Why Crunchy Peanut Butter Makes All the Difference:

Let's face it, the smooth texture of peanut butter paired with banana is delicious, but adding a bit of crunch brings a whole new dimension to this classic combo. Our 99th Monkey Crunchy Peanut Butter is packed with delicious roasted peanuts, delivering delightful bursts of texture in every bite. It adds a playful contrast to the smooth banana and elevates the overall experience.

The Magic of Cinnamon:

Cinnamon, with its warm and aromatic notes, is the perfect partner for our peanut butter and banana combination. It adds a depth of flavour and a touch of sophistication, transforming this simple snack into something truly special.

Building Your Dream Toast:

Here's how to create your ultimate peanut butter and banana masterpiece:

  1. Toast Time: Start with a slice of freshly toasted sourdough bread. The slightly crisp texture provides a fantastic base for your toppings.
  2. Spread the Love: Slather your favourite 99th Monkey Crunchy Peanut Butter generously across the toasted bread.
  3. Banana Bonanza: Top it all off with slices of your favourite ripe banana.
  4. Cinnamon Sprinkle: Dust the toast with a touch of ground cinnamon. The warmth of the cinnamon will beautifully complement the peanut butter and banana flavours.

Beyond Toast:

The beauty of this combination lies in its versatility. While toast provides the perfect canvas, you can enjoy your peanut butter, banana, and cinnamon symphony on:

  • Rice cakes: A lighter option.
  • Biscuits: A delightful and portable snack option.
  • Crumpets: A more airy texture that soaks up the peanut butter oh so well.
  • Fresh bread: Any type of bread will work, from classic white to a flavourful multigrain.

Salted vs. Unsalted: The Power of Choice:

One of the best things about this recipe is its flexibility regarding the peanut butter. Both our Salted Crunchy Peanut Butter and Unsalted Crunchy Peanut Butter work beautifully with this combination. The salted variety offers a touch of savoury complexity, while the unsalted lets the natural sweetness of the banana shine through. Ultimately, the choice is yours – pick whichever suits your taste buds best!

Beyond the Basics:

While the core combination of peanut butter, banana, and cinnamon is a flavour bomb on its own, feel free to get creative with your toppings! Here are some ideas:

  • Granola: A sprinkle of granola adds extra texture and a touch of sweetness.
  • Chopped nuts: Walnuts, almonds, or even chopped peanuts add another layer of texture and nuttiness.
  • Honey drizzle: For an extra touch of sweetness, drizzle some honey over your toast.
  • Chia seeds: Sprinkle some chia seeds for a healthy boost of fibre.

The Final Bite:

The timeless duo of peanut butter and banana gets a delightful upgrade with the addition of crunchy texture and a touch of cinnamon. This simple yet satisfying snack is perfect for breakfast, a midday pick-me-up, or a sweet treat. So grab your favourite 99th Monkey nut butter, a ripe banana, and some ground cinnamon, and get ready to experience a flavour explosion that's anything but ordinary.
