Here is another variation of the always popular banana bread.


1 cup granulated sugar

1 stick butter

2 large eggs

2 cups all purpose flour

2 large or 3 small bananas, mashed

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 cup chopped peanuts, divided

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan (I use a paper loaf liner instead of greasing the pan).  Combine sugar and butter in a large bowl.  Beat with electric mixer set at medium-high speed until smooth and creamy.  Beat in eggs.  Add flour, bananas, peanut butter and baking soda to creamed mixture and mix well.  Add 6 tablespoons peanuts to peanut butter mixture and mix well.  Spoon batter into prepared loaf pan.  Sprinkle with the remaining peanuts.  Bake bread until a toothpick inserted in center of bread comes out clean, about 1 hour and 10 minutes.  Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

NOTE:  I have also used chucky peanut butter instead of creamy.


  1. ooh, peanut butter in banana bread would be ace 🙂


  2. Peanut butter is a great addition! Very tempted to try this… I have some manky old bananas in my fruit bowl just begging to be all used up


    • Never hurts to add peanut butter for protein, too!
