Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 40 mins

A nice variation on a classic food. This recipe was inspired by Banana Bread (with a twist) #17180 posted by Barb Talkington. This does not take the place of regular banana bread, but I recommend it for a break from the beaten path. You can also successfully make this into muffins. Reduce the bake time accordingly.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease a 9x4-inch loaf pan.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, peanut butter and oil or shortening and mix until uniform.
  3. Add the mashed bananas and beat in the eggs.
  4. Stir in the milk and vanilla.
  5. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients and mix well.
  6. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and stir just until all dry ingredients are moistened.
  7. Turn into the greased loaf pan and bake for approximately 40 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the loaf comes out clean.

Sorry this didn't work for me-even tried using 1/4 cup red fat PB & the flavor still didn't come through. Thanks anyway!

I thought this was very very good. I agree, i added way more than 4tbs of peanut butter. Probably equaled to a 1/2 cup of peanut butter. Jif of course. It needed to cook a lot longer than suggested, i think cuz of the extra peanut butter i used, and i dont think it was completely done, but it was awesome. Very moist, not dry like most banana breads ive had.

This was a good healthy version of banana nut bread. I baked it as muffins (30 minutes), and added wheat germ and raisins. My kids loved them, so we definitely will have them again. I froze most of them, and hope they survive in the freezer.
