I’m sure many of you have long stretches of taking the same food on each hike, swearing by a recipe, not able to understand why you ever ate anything else. Happens to me all the time. Then, a week or two later, you’ll find something totally different and have the same love affair. These past couple of weeks have been the good ol’ PBHB (judging the B’s ripeness and not smooshing it in your pack is a camping skill in itself, yeah?) because, really, there’s not much better. Period. Sure, if you’re home and the bananas are frozen, that’s better. And if you have the energy to toast up the bread a little near the fire, that’ll make it slightly better too. And, of course crunchy. Always crunchy. What do y’all got?

    Honey makes a trip, but gotta go with the open-face, evening routine:

    *Slice of bread-toasted
    *Peanut butter (quilty as charged, but I can’t do the organic) JIF melts well on hot toast
    *4 slices cheddar (not melted)
    *Sprinkled with raisens/Craisens

    Disgusting, yes. Delicious, yes.

    Peanut butter toast was an inspiration for me. Only recently was I introduced to the addition of honey and bananas. Live has been better ever since.

    My goto is mixing a bag of raisins and cashews together. That makes me happy.

    Oh, the same for sure. But I’m partial to dusting it with cinnamon too.

    Excellent post. Here’s our little ode to what we believe is the food of the Gods: The PB&J.

    Honey’s pretty tasty but it does attract bears :-)

    Gotta be strawberry jelly all the way!

    great combo.
    and on the sweeter side if need be, and a bit of Nutella.
    toasted Dave’s Killer Bread, nutella(for energy spike), bananas(or raspberries!)
    This is usually a go-to while on bicycle trips.

    Love PB&Js. I’ve been using that Johnny Cake recipe you posted on here a lot. Great stuff.

    You’ll never worry about the smooshed banana if you have a banana saver. They are, as you’ll see, great conversation starters, too.

    I’m a fan of PBM myself. Peanut butter and orange marmalade are always staples in my kitchen.

    trader joe’s flattened bananas make an awesome p.b.h. burrito. just don’t forget to fold the ends! it also helps to get the pb:h ratio dialed in beforehand.

    and good miso packets are hard to beat in the winter.

    Nivaldo’s a big fan of PBHB. I find it a bit rich and still prefer the PBJ combo.
