How to Make Healthy and Moist Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Peanut Butter Banana Bread Sliced

Banana bread is delicious and a great way to use overly ripe bananas. However, peanut butter and a healthy oil to this banana bread recipe produce an incredible and moist loaf with a yummy underlying nutty twist. If you want to taste sensational nut-flavored banana bread, then let me tell you how to make it is also easy.

Canola oil in this recipe guarantee banana bread with a safer healthy form of fat to avoid the trans fat and saturated fat associated with shortening that is made with partially hydrogenated vegetable oil that can cause heart disease and butter with more saturated fat.

In addition, there is no sodium from salt in this healthy peanut butter banana bread. Of course, the only sodium in this recipe results from the baking powder and baking soda. Nonetheless, you can buy sodium free baking powder or a low-sodium baking powder as well as baking soda to reduce the content further.

For those that have a peanut allergy, you can always replace the peanut butter. According to the Australian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy, the proteins in tree nuts such as cashews, almonds, pecans, walnuts, pistachio or cashews are different from the ones from peanuts that are legumes with peanut allergens. Therefore, you always have the option of using an alternative nut butter as a substitute.

Put my banana loaf with peanut butter to the test and I know that you’re going to love it. If you do decide to use my recipe, please share it with your family and friends.

Peanut Butter Banana Bread Loaf

Peanut Butter Banana Bread

1-3/4 cups sifted flour
2 teaspoons of baking powder, leveled
1/4 teaspoons of baking soda, leveled
1/3 cup of canola oil
3/4 cup of creamy or crunchy peanut butter
2/3 cup of sugar
2 teaspoons of vanilla
2 large eggs
3 mashed medium ripe bananas (about 1 cup)

In your mixing bowl, sift together: flour, baking powder and baking soda.

In another mixing bowl, cream the oil with the peanut butter and gradually add the sugar until well combined before adding the eggs one at a time and creaming again until mixed thoroughly.

Add the dry ingredients alternately with the mashed bananas, beating well after each addition.

Pour into a well-greased 9 x 5-inch loaf pan.

Bake in a 350-degree oven for about 50 to 60 minutes, depending on how your oven is regulated.

Test with a cake tester or slender knife to see if anything sticks for determining doneness.

Allow this bread to remain in the pan for about five minutes before attempting to remove it.

Cool completely before slicing.
