Peanut Butternana

Peanut Butternana...

Yumm... a tantalizing cupcake. Organic old-fashioned peanut butter and baby bananas (not artificial banana flavor... which would be yuck!), and peanut butter buttercream frosting. Salty and sweet combinations are simply fabulous.

I used baby bananas as they're in season/available now, which makes the cake taste even better, since the baby banana is sweeter than the regular bananas you buy at the grocery store.

The baby banana is native to Columbia, and grows in bunches that contain ten to twelve "fingers," or bananas. The baby banana is loaded with nutrients. It's an excellent source of heart-healthy vitamin B6, and provides a good source of vitamin C, fiber, and potassium

I've always been fascinated by the use of peanuts and peanut butter... Peanuts are so versatile. The fact that they can be used as salty, savory, or sweet, makes it such a perfect little nut, and the protein and nutrition is good for you too! Well... as long as you're not overloading it with salt or sugar.
