Ingredients:

  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 200 grams all-purpose flour
  • 100 grams granulated sugar
  • 100 grams brown sugar
  • 125 grams creamy peanut butter
  • 60 grams unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 50 grams chopped nuts (optional)

Preparation: Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C) and greasing a 9×5 inch loaf pan. In a large mixing bowl, combine the mashed bananas, granulated sugar, brown sugar, peanut butter, melted butter, eggs, and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth and well combined.

Mixing the Dry Ingredients: In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and ground cinnamon. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix. If desired, fold in the chopped nuts for added texture and flavor.

Baking the Bread: Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth the top. Bake for 60-70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let the bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.

Peanut butter banana bread offers a delicious combination of flavors that is both comforting and satisfying. It’s a perfect treat for any time of day and can be enjoyed warm or at room temperature.
