I’ve had a few bananas on my counter for about a week now, and of course they’re turning browner every day. Last night I decided Banana Bread was in order. I found this recipe on allrecipes, but it called for nuts. I’ve never really cared for nuts in my food, so I left those out. The peanut butter is not very noticeable in the bread, but does give it a mild nutty flavor without the actual chunks of nuts.
Preheat oven to 325. Lightly grease a 5×9 inch loaf pan.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs; beat well. Stir in peanut butter, bananas, flour and baking soda until blended. Pour into prepared pan.
Bake at 325 for 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
This bread came together very quickly, though it does bake for a long time. It smelled great while it was baking, I kept hearing “is it ready yet?”. It came out moist and full of banana flavor. Well worth the wait! 🙂
