This Peanut Butter Banana Bread is full of flavor, texture and a perfect treat.
Lets be honest for a minute, when am I not in the mood for nut butter? Fortunately I do not have any nut allergies so I am always finding ways to incorporate more nut butter into my life. If you or your children have a peanut allergy you can easily swap the peanut butter for cashew, walnut, pecan or almond butter.Jump to Recipe
What does this peanut butter banana bread taste like?
Well it taste like peanut butter banana toast in a sense. You can taste both flavors well so it’s a great combination if you like peanut butter with your banana. It is a bit sweet, but not overkill so you can easily have this for a breakfast treat, snack or dessert. I like to warm mine up a bit and spread some butter on it.
What you will need for this recipe
One Egg. Room temperature is preferred
Peanut Butter. Creamy or crunchy will work. I opted for crunchy because I love the texture. If you have allergies, opt for cashew butter or almond butter.
three over ripe bananas, mashed. If you don’t have over ripe bananas I suggest you sauté the bananas you do have in a pan with a tsp of oil to soften them up.
Sugar. Yes sugar, you can use any sugar you have on hand. I used coconut sugar. White sugar will work just fine.
Oil of butter. You can use vegan butter, regular butter or melted coconut butter.
Flour. I used regular all purpose flour but you can also use all purpose gluten free if you have allergies.
Vanilla extract, salt and baking soda.
You will want to mix your ingredients in two separate bowls. One for wet ingredients and one for dry.
