You know how some people substitute applesauce for oil in recipes?
I’m clearly not one of those people.
I took a perfectly good, healthful-ish banana bread recipe and I did all sorts of crazy things to it. Things that are quite possibly illegal.
I got it in my head to make a Hot Fudge and Peanut Butter Banana Bread. Sounds good, right? Then I reached for the peanut butter and my hand knocked into the jar of Fluff and sent it flying out of the cabinet.
It was a sign, you guys. Probably from Jesus himself.
I slathered my bread slices in extra peanut butter, but I think some warm hot fudge sauce would make a great topping.
