Peanut Butter Banana Bread: Crunchy or Smooth?

Updated: Aug 20, 2023

Peanut Butter Banana Bread a new Fall favorite. It is like Banana Nut Bread with a twist.

Banana Nut bread is always a great breakfast treat for friends and family. I decided to elevate the bread by substituting Walnuts with Crunchy Jif Peanut butter. If you are thinking 'Can You Do That ?' The answer is, I did that ! :

The Peanut butter adds a creamy richness to the bread, while the peanuts provide the crunch-GTG

This bread recipe is easy to make. The prep time is short as well. A good tip to use when cooking this recipe is the heavy the seeds/nuts you use, add them to the batter last instead of mixing. Let me know in the comments section how it turns out. Happy cooking !
