There are tons of peanuts in this banana bread. The batter has it in the form of peanut butter while crushed peanuts are present in the batter as well as on top in the form of a streusel. This bread will be a peanut butter lover’s heaven!
To make this nutritious peanut butter banana bread, the following ingredients are required:
All purpose flour - Any brand of flour can be used. If using whole wheat flour, check for the liquid content.
Banana - Ripe bananas sitting in your counter are the star of this bread along with peanut butter.
Peanut butter - This recipe uses creamy peanut butter, Any brand peanut butter could be used in this recipe.
Brown sugar - Sweetens the bread
Peanuts - Crushed peanuts give a texture bite that is simple out of the world. I have used roasted peanuts. Store bought or homemade roasted peanuts can be used.
Baking soda and baking powder - Leavening agents
Oil - neutral flavored oil works great.
Milk - It is used to gel the flaxseed powder.
Flaxseed powder - it is the egg replacer used in this recipe. These seeds also add to the omega acids and proteins.
Oats - star of the streusel topping giving the perfect texture and adding nutrition.
Salt - gives flavor.
Butter - The butter gives the classic finish for the streusel.
Vanilla - enhances the flavor and aroma.
This bread can be served for breakfast. I would love this as such with a cup of ginger chai. That makes my morning great. Of course this can be served along with a cup of coffee, and kids would prefer this for breakfast with milk for wholesome breakfast. A little jelly on top could elevate the comfort level, but it is great as such too.
The bread can be stored at room temperature for a couple of days. This can be stored in the fridge for 7 to 10 days. Warm in the microwave for 10 sec bursts to warm the bread or warm the slice in the oven.
Like this peanut butter banana bread, this whole wheat banana bread is yet another healthy version to start your day or for a snack. I would highly recommend Chocolatey Whole wheat Date Sugar Banana bread, as it is easier to sneak healthy ingredients like dates. Or proteins in the form of peanuts in this banana bread. Even picky eaters would love to have these tasty banana breads.
Every season calls for a banana bread with seasonal flair. Bake the Eggless Coconut Lime Ginger Banana Bread or Vegan Whole Wheat Carrot Banana Bread for Spring breakfast while the Peppermint Banana Bread is a great choice to enjoy during holidays. The mini loaves of Almond Gingerbread Banana Bread are great edible gifts to give to friends and family. Our family loves banana bread and the season of Fall.
