This Monkey Bread was an experiment for me.  My family loves peanut butter and bananas! I added some chocolate chips to this and it was even better.  This is a great breakfast treat for children and adults alike.  We love it with coffee and children will love it with a tall glass of milk.

2 (7.5 ounce cans) biscuits
2 medium bananas
Chocolate chips (I used 2 in each biscuit)
Peanut Butter (I used extra crunchy. You can use whatever you like)
6 tablespoons butter or margarine
3/4 cup brown sugar
Spray a 9 inch round cake pan.  Roll biscuits out with rolling pin.  Spread with peanut butter and add 2 banana slices plus 2 chocolate chips.  Fold biscuits in half and place in cake pan.  Heat butter and brown sugar until melted and pour over the biscuits.  Bake in preheated 375 degree oven 25 to 30 minutes or until biscuits are done and bread is brown.  Let cool about 10 minutes and turn out onto serving plate. Can top with nuts and banana slices. Makes about 8 servings.  Enjoy!
