Bananas and chunky peanut butter complement each other in this quick break, which bakes to a beautiful golden brown. It's a fun change of pace from typical banana breads.

I increased the peanut butter to 1 cup (I only had smooth) and made muffins instead of bread since I couldn't find my loaf pan. the recipe yielded 21 muffins (cooked at 350 for 25-32 minutes, they came out beautifully), and they disappeared in days. Read More

I just made this recipe with a few of the suggested modifications. (I used 1/2 c. brown sugar, 1/2 c. white sugar PLUS I added in vanilla, a little cinnamon, 2 TBSP of mayonnaise for moisture, and I added in some chocolate chips). OMG...it's awesome! Great recipe! mmmmmm Read More

OMG!!! This was the best! I used whole wheat flour and brown sugar, and substituted 2/3 cup applesauce for the butter and eggs. I tasted the batter and found that there was too much peanut butter flavor and not enough banana, so I chopped up another 1/2 of a banana in little pieces and added it into the batter. That went marvelously with the peanut chunks from the chunky pb! The predominant flavor in this bread is still peanut butter though, but only slightly. The batter is a little dry; I ended up adding a bit more water. I think next time I might try honey instead of sugar. But overall this was AWESOME. Thank you SO much for the post! Read More

Add a cup of sour cream to the batter at the end and it comes out moist and perfect. Also - be sure to really let it cool before eating it. I made this for 3 men and myself and we ate a half a loaf in less than a day. (It makes a HUGE loaf....) Read More

Delicious!!! I made this last night with 3 large bananas and about a cup of peanut butter. Used applesauce in place of the butter to reduce the fat and threw in about 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. I was going to add some vanilla but I forgot and it's fine anyway. Totally yummy today and you can really taste both flavours distinctly and they blend beautifully! Will most definitely make again and again! Read More

Loved the flavor of this bread! You can definately taste the banana, and the peanut butter. It did come out a tad dry. Very dense and filling. I had to use foil to cover about the last 30 minutes of cook time, because the top was turning way to brown. Read More

I made this tonight and my family loved it! I followed the recipe, but I added 1/2 c. chopped pecans, and I read that it was a little dry, so I also used 1/2 brown sugar, and 1/2 white sugar, and 3 tbsp of vanilla yogurt...not enough to change the flavor, but enough to moisten it just a bit. I added 4 across the top to dress it up. It turned out beautifully. Thank you. Read More

Good and easy! I added chocolate chips, vanilla, and cinnamon. I also used 1/2 c. brown sugar and 1/2 c. white sugar, instead of all white sugar. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
