Peanut Butter Banana Bread Recipe

I have always enjoyed an occasional peanut butter banana sandwich, but I'm craving them more and more with this pregnancy. I was going through old magazines last week and found this Peanut Butter Banana Bread recipe in last October's Cooking Light Magazine. Luckily, I had some bananas on hand that were starting to get really ripe. The recipe turned out to be fantastic and the whole family loves it.


1 1/2 cups mashed ripe banana
1/3 cup plain fat-free yogurt(I used fat free sour cream)
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons butter, melted
2 large eggs
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
6 3/4 ounces all-purpose flour (about 1 1/2 cups)
1/4 cup ground flaxseed(you can leave it out if you don't have this)
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
2 tablespoons chopped dry-roasted peanuts
Cooking spray
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon 1% low-fat milk
1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter

1. Preheat oven to 350°.
2. To prepare bread, combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed. Add granulated and brown sugars; beat until blended.
3. Weigh or lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 5 ingredients (through allspice) in a small bowl. Add flour mixture to banana mixture; beat just until blended. Stir in nuts. Pour batter into a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 1 hour and 5 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven; cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack. Remove bread from pan; cool.
4. To prepare glaze, combine powdered sugar, milk, and 1 tablespoon peanut butter in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Drizzle glaze over bread.

That sounds so good! I love that it has flaxseed in it! We usually spread peanut butter on our banana bread. Of course, we'd love this recipe!
