    HokiesMom's Note:

    From Metropolitan Cookbook 1964...I love old cookbooks! I love the combination of peanut butter and bananas in this quick bread. (Edited to adjust the baking times to 35-45 minutes and not the original 1 hour. My oven it takes almost a complete 45 minutes where reviewers are baked in 35 minutes. Just check after 35 minutes so it does not get overbaked!)

      This bread is soooooooo good! It is moist, full of banana and pb flavour and has such a crunchy crust! Mmmm! We LOVED this and could not stop eating it. Its like a sinful dessert.
      I made some changes to make it a little healthier: I used half whole spelt flour, left out the shortening and used all natural pb. Also I felt that the bananas were sweet enough for my taste, so I only used 1/2 tbs of sugar, so that the bread had a nice fruity sweetness.
      THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this delish treat with us, Mel!
      Made and reviewed for Potluck Tag Game November 2010.

      This was wonderful! I only had 2 large bananas so the peanut butter kinda dominated but that's OK! I also had to cook mine for about 50 minutes. Very, very good! Made for Zaar I Recommend Tag Game 2011.

      Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwiches are my DH's all time favorite snack - so I new I couldn't go wrong with the combination. Should have known my peanut butter loving friend HL would have a wonderful recipe like this posted. This bread is moist and absolutely delicious!!! I did add two tablespoons of flax seed meal.... which helped to add to the nutty flavor - and this is wonderful with a little strawberry cream cheese too!!! Thank you GF, I know I'll be making this often when I have bananas to use up!!!
