Peanut Butter Cup Banana Bread Bars

It pains me to admit that this was my husband’s idea. No exaggerating, it little hurts.

He’s the one in our relationship that is always offering ideas but they are usually the WORST ideas in the history of life…. seriously. When building my desk (have you seen it yet? I’ll link the post here!), he suggested that I glue felt all over it… FELT?!? He might as well have suggested gluing shag carpet from the ’70s. The look I gave him made his eyes bug out and he quickly tried to remove that suggestion from the universe.

TOO LATE BAT WINGS! (That’s what I lovingly call him because his back hair looks ridiculous… he’s going to kill me for telling you, whoops!) THAT CRAP IS ALREADY OUT THERE TO BE REMEMBERED BY ALL! and by all I simply mean me… and now you!

So anyway, this recipe was completely his idea and now you can see why it pains me. I’m the one that’s suppose to have the good ideas! Not him.

Regardless, it will knock your socks off. Or your britches off. It’s gluten-free, vegan and has only a handful of ingredients. It can also be baked in muffin form which is equally as delicious.

I swirled the dough with peanut butter and topped it with some of Justin’s peanut butter cups to make it extra delicious… I can at least take credit for that mmk?

Please make this oogey gooey deliciousness so we can enjoy them together! Oh, and then tag me so that I can share it on instagram.com/ahealthyharmony/ and make everyone else jealous 😉
