I will never get tired of the peanut butter and banana combination. How about you?! But throw in the fact that it’s in a healthy way..and you really have a winner.

And biscottis? Another favorite of mine. I really don’t even like cookies all that much..but something about the crispiness of biscottis, I love them! Probably because I love anything crunchy. Toast? Extra toasted please. When friends want to throw away the best part of their pizza (aka their pizza crust)? GIMME.

So maybe that’s why I love biscottis so much. Every time I make them, I question myself as to why I don’t make them more often..

But this time I decided, why not make them protein packed? I mean, when I make them, I have ZERO self control. So why not at least add some good-for-you protein before I eat the whole batch?

Are you a fan of soft of crispy when it comes to baked goods and breads?

What is your favorite pairing with peanut butter?
