Banana Bread (With a Twist)

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Iron Bloomers

Grandma's recipe handed down over the years, with 1 minor alteration! Stranded without a car, a toddler under foot and half way through the recipe I realized I was out of the margarine the recipe called for..."Oh bother," what to do? Well, there was always peanut butter in the house, and with nothing to lose at that point, I SUBSTITUTED! The end result was this recipe.

It was very easy and quick to make, but we did not care for the taste. We prefer the bread made with shortening.
