Peanut Butter and Banana Dip | | Creamy peanut butter and banana  make a deliciously sweet dip | #peanut butter #fruit #recipe #appetizer

I’ve got some sort of dip thing obsession. As of late all I want to do is make dip.

On a side note: Dip baby dip, dip baby dip <— That’s the song that is in my head right now. That’s mah song! 1995 Foreva! ;-)

So, you know how sometimes you go to the store and find 4 jars of Peanut Butter on sale for 5 bucks and then you buy 12 of them because, well, they were on sale?! Yeah, you know what I’m talking about. I did that. That (super) lazy-susan of mine is on peanut butter duty now. That’s all she’s holding for me.

The fact that this delicious treat turned into a peanut butter banana dip is just pure circumstance.

I had one banana in the fruit bowl. She was dark and spotty. I also had 12 jars of peanut butter. Hmmm…Peanut Butter Banana Bread with Candied Bacon? Did that. Peanut Butter and Chocolate Ice Cream? Did that, too. Maybe I’ll just dip my banana in the peanut butter jar and call it a day.

Oh wait! Ding Ding Ding! Peanut Butter and Banana DIP! Dip Baby Dip! 

And that’s how it happened. Truthfully, that is how a lot of things happen in this kitchen. I go from one idea to the next, and then all these other ideas start jumping around until my brain starts to hurt.

    Brilliant idea!!! I can’t remember the last time I bought a box of Nila wafers-they sure look good on the plate with your dip;-)

    Kate, your PB & ‘Nana dip looks FAB! Reminds me of Koogle brand peanut butter growing up with their chocolate and banana peanut butter varieties. But, yours looks so much better and is all-natural and healthy! I’m with you on the salty-sweet thing…pretzels for dipping, baby! Pinning. xo

    I’ve never seen a peanut butter banana dip before. Fabulous idea! That sounds soooooo good. I bet some pretzels would be delicious dipped in there too. :) Although the Nilla wafers are genius!
