Packed with peanut butter, this Peanut Butter Bread is a decadent, slightly, sweet quick bread that’s perfect for breakfast, snacking, or dessert!
To clear up any confusion this doesn’t have bananas in it. Although the addition of bananas sounds wonderful, doesn’t it?
PEANUT BUTTER BREAD
Frankly, I love the simplicity of just the peanut butter flavor. Since children typically don’t like multiple combinations of flavors in their foods, it suits them well. However, if you’re serving adults, you can add other combinations of ingredients that pair well with peanut butter.
- Try adding 1/4 cup chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, white chocolate chips, or cinnamon chips to the batter.
- Additionally, 1/4 cup of coarsely chopped pecans, peanuts, or walnuts will add a nice texture to the bread.
- Try toasting the bread with a smear of butter.
- Make cinnamon toast using this bread instead of white bread.
- As well, you can make muffins using this batter. Evenly divide the dough in a 12-cup muffin tin. Bake for 20 to 22 minutes for regular size muffins. For mini-muffins, the cooking time is 10 to 12 minutes. (Cooking times for muffins depends on the muffin tin size and how much you put in them. Muffin tins don’t come in standard sizes.)
- Banana Bread Bananas Foster is a delicious way to enjoy this bread as a dessert!
To store, wrap tightly in plastic wrap or in an airtight container. It’ll stay fresh 3 days on the countertop.
As well, you can store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to one week.
This quick bread freezes wonderfully, simply wrapped tightly in plastic wrap then place in a freezer, ziptop bag. It’ll stay fresh up to three months in the freezer.
