Greeny's Peanut Butter Banana Bread

READY IN: 1hr 19mins
Recipe by Greeny4444

A great twist on an classic favorite. I had planned to make Cooking Light's recipe from their October 2010 issue, but I had to substitute a bunch of ingredients. It still came out great!

This was a breeze to pull together. I used half unbleached white sugar and half brown sugar. Added 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, too. I cut the recipe in half and used a mini-tube pan to bake the bread. Took about 35 minutes to bake and covered the bread the last fifteen minutes. Delicious with a cup of freshly brewed coffee! Thanks for posting!
