Spicy Peanut Sauce used to dip dumplings being held with brown wooden chopsticks on a white background

I can’t get enough of this Spicy Peanut Sauce. Fresh ginger, garlic, and of course, JUSTIN’S® Honey Peanut Butter. It’s so good I could drink it right from the bowl. Of course, I’d never do that. Maybe.

Peanut Butter Apple Banana Bread slices topped with banana slices and peanut butter on white parchment on white background

Go bananas with this Peanut Butter Apple Banana Bread sure to delight your palate. Banana bread is one of my favorite baked goods. When I was putting this recipe together I thought, “How could I justify this recipe?”. The answer was simple, I’ve added JUSTIN’S® Honey Peanut Butter (that’s me, Justin), honey apples, apple sauce, bananas, and my not-so-secret ingredient, love, for a truly exquisite loaf of banana bread.
