Peanut Butter Banana Bread


Welcome to my latest baking recipe for Peanut Butter Banana Bread. A twist on traditional banana bread with some peanut butter and chocolate chips added in.

I find I usually make banana bread when I have a couple of leftover ripe bananas at the end of the week. Funnily enough during the first lockdown when the nation went baking mad, banana bread was the most searched for recipe!

If you aren’t a fan of peanut butter then you can leave it out. You might want to try out one of this options instead:

  • Fresh raspberries
  • Add in some cocoa powder
  • Add in a swirl of cinnamon sugar
  • Strawberries
