Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Peanut Butter Banana Bread

It’s time to use up some bananas again because I always end up buying more than I get around to actually eating. Always. This time … instead of the my chocolate marbled banana bread that I love so much … I’m going a little simpler with peanut butter mixed in the batter.

Peanut Butter Banana Bread Ingredients

This recipe uses basic ingredients which is always a plus when I have a last minute urge to bake something and hope that I already have everything I will need in the pantry.

Peanut Butter Banana Bread Steps

The steps are easy, too. And you don’t even need a mixer. This is a hand mixing mashup. Make the banana bread batter and then combine some of the batter with melted peanut butter.
