Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Taste of the SisterhoodBanana bread is such a versatile staple, and who doesn’t always have an overripe banana or two lying around? Plus, you can add all kinds of fun things to banana bread to change it up – like peanut butter! Who doesn’t love peanut butter, right?

I found this recipe for Peanut Butter Banana Bread in October 2010 issue of Cooking Light. I’ve already made it several times (with my kids!) and it’s a huge hit for breakfast, snack, and even dessert. I may have even had it for dinner a time or two. Shhhhh!

    Looks delicious, kids will like it especially with the glaze. Is is supposed to be 1/4 cup of flaxseed? Thanks. Keep the great recipes coming.

    I found this through pinterest. I’m making it now but I had to make due with using vanilla super fatty yogurt, no flax, subbing peanuts with chocolate chips, subbing cooking spray with butter, I left out the spices cause my kids think cinnamon is “too spicy”, and I sprinkled a little borwn sugar on top to forego the icing step afterwards cause I’m lazy. Fingers crossed it still turns out ok.

      I forgot to adjust for a glass pan, the cook time was too long and the edges got pretty dark. oops. It tastes alright but you can’t really taste the peanut butter though. Thanks for the inspiration :D
