Stop monkeying around and try this banana nut spread


Wave goodbye to your jar of Nutella—as soon as you try this to-die-for spread you can whip up in your own kitchen, you’ll never go back. With fresh ingredients and super indulgent flavor, this blend will make you go, well...bananas. 


What youll need:

1 cup dried banana chips

2 cups (16 oz) honey roasted peanuts

½ tsp vanilla extract

3/4 cup dark chocolate chips

What youll do:

1. Blend the dried banana chips in a food processor for 3-5 minutes until they turn into a dry paste.

2. Add in the honey roasted peanuts and continue to blend for another five minutes, or longer if you’d like an extra-smooth spread. Don’t worry if the peanuts turn into crumbs--after a couple of minutes, they will begin to clump then turn into a grainy paste and smoothen out. If the mixture is getting too hot, turn off your blender for a minute or so to cool it down.

3. Add the vanilla extract and blend for a few seconds until combined.

4. Spoon out half of the peanut mixture into a medium-sized bowl.

5. Add chocolate chips into the remaining mixture in the food processor, blending until combined.

6. Get two, 8-oz. mason jars and begin alternately adding in the two mixtures. Start with a layer of peanut butter mixture, then put a layer of chocolate butter mixture, and continue until your two jars are filled.

7. Dip some strawberries or graham crackers into the blend, or spread it on some bread for a yummy afternoon snack!
