Is there any better combination than bananas and peanut butter? Really, peanut butter and anything? If I could, I would eat peanut butter by the spoonfuls, that’s how much I love it. So when I set out to make a banana bread the other day, I thought it needed a peanut butter injection…because seriously.
I tried a couple of recipes but found myself using my regular banana bread recipe and tweaking it a bit, and I love how it turned out. I think the only thing I would do differently is maybe add more peanut butter. The peanut butter taste in this recipe is subtle, so next time I’m going to try 1/2 cup instead of 1/3 cup. Nonetheless, this Peanut Butter Banana Bread is so delicious.
Throw in some chocolate chips and you’re going to want to eat the entire loaf. You will.
So if you have a hankering for bananas and peanut butter, this easy to make bread will do the trick!
Peanut Butter Banana Bread
- 11/3 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 3 mashed bananas
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, cream together the butter, sugar and peanut butter.
Then beat the flour mix into the butter mix, until it has the consistency of brown sugar.
Beat in the eggs one at a time.
Fold in the mashed banana.
Bake for about 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the loaf comes out clean.
