Recipe Thursday {Peanut Butter Banana Bread}

Bananas and peanut butter? A great combination! This recipe is a great snack or compliment to a breakfast. Here's the recipe:


  • 1 stick margarine or butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 large bananas or 2 small bananas 
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Blend the margarine, eggs and sugar.

"Mash" the bananas and peanut butter together with a food processor until the mixture is smooth. Add the banana mixture to the margarine mixture.

Sift together dry ingredients (salt, flour, baking powder & baking soda). Add to the banana and margarine mixture along with vanilla and lemon juice.

If you're using cupcake liners, put them in your pan. Otherwise, spray or grease the muffin cups really well. Fill muffin cups about 2/3 of the way full. Bake for 15-20 minutes (mine were done at 18 minutes). Makes 1 dozen muffins.

I'm having a blast at these lovely linking parties.
