I make peanut butter banana sandwiches all the time. I though, why not take it to the next level, and make peanut butter banana bread?
Peanut Butter Banana Bread Recipe
Here’s my creation, and it’s quite yummy, if I say so myself!
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
7 ripe bananas, fork mashed
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
4 eggs, slightly beaten
3 cups whole wheat flour
½ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup peanut butter chips
Makes two loaves or 2-3 dozen muffins.
- Cream the butter and sugar. Blend in the mashed bananas, vanilla and eggs.
- Whisk together the dry ingredients.
- Add dry ingredients to the banana mixture and mix until just combined. Pour into two greased 9 x 5 inch loaf pans.
- Bake at 350F. Check on the bread after 35 minutes (it may take up to 60 minutes). Check muffins after 15 minutes (they may take up to 18 minutes). Banana bread is done when a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool the banana bread in the pan for 10 minutes then cool completely on a wire rack.
Enjoy! P.S. I freeze the second loaf for another day.
