Submitted to the Penzey's spice catalog by Meredith Wittman. Posting here so I don't lose the recipe. Great banana bread, and healthier than most. Recipe says ground flax seed is optional but I thought it was a great addition. Penzey's Baking Spice contains cinnamon, anise, mace, and cardamon. If needed, I'd suggest subbing with cinnamon.

- 2 eggs
- 1⁄2 cup plain yogurt or 1⁄2 cup vanilla yogurt
- 1⁄2 cup creamy peanut butter
