Peanut butter is whipped into the basic recipe for a moist banana bread with a hint of nutty flavor. A small amount of chopped roasted peanuts offers delightfully surprising crunch.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

To prepare bread, combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed. Add granulated and brown sugars; beat until blended.

Step 3

Weigh or lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 5 ingredients (through allspice) in a small bowl. Add flour mixture to banana mixture; beat just until blended. Stir in nuts. Pour batter into a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 1 hour and 5 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven; cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack. Remove bread from pan; cool.

Step 4

To prepare glaze, combine powdered sugar, milk, and 1 tablespoon peanut butter in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Drizzle glaze over bread.

Flavor ok but there is No peanut butter flavor to it. I don't like nuts in my bread so I Didn't add the peanuts.

This was so good I ate a half of loaf. I used applesauce instead of butter as usual in my recipes andI had no flax.

Best Banana Bread Recipe Ever!

Perfect balance of moisture, sweetness and texture. Not oily, super sweet and spongy like other recipes. I substituted Almond butter for Peanut butter - my daughter is allergic, and substituted Chia seeds for ground flax. Also added a few dark choc. chips! and omitted glaze. This recipe is a keeper.

I have made this many times - very moist, not too crumbly, and great taste. I do not add the glaze.

This is a good way to change up banana bread. I didn't bother with the glaze. The only other changes I made were to use low-fat chunky peanut butter and since I was out of ground flax seed, I substituted ground millet instead. I needed a total of 65 minutes to completely bake this loaf. Will definitely make this from time to time.

I originally rated this one as 3 stars, but I made the recipe again recently with the following changes and the bread is now 5-star! 1) subsituted the flax seed for whole wheat flour; 2) Added lightly salted peanuts (not chopped) and 1/4 cup each of bittersweet & semi-sweet chocolate chips. 3) skipped the glaze. 4) used 2 large ripe bananas (I previously had only used 1) & 5) used Low-Fat Greek Yogurt (additional protein; bonus!) WOW is all I have to say; excellent banana bread. Super moist with nice texture from the big pieces of peanut and that little something extra in the chocolate chips to give you an afternoon "pick-me-up" at your desk. Will absolutely keep this one in mind for the extra bananas that are too ripe to enjoy, but great for baking. Enjoy!
