My absolute favorite sandwich as a kid was banana slices and crunchy peanut butter on toasted bread – to be honest it is still a favorite today. Recently I was thinking about how delicious it would be to make a banana bread that incorporated peanut butter both because I love that combination and since it would amp up the protein to give it a little more staying power. I used a basic banana bread recipe, adding in the peanut butter, and the results was great – definitely will be making this again soon.

Instructions

1

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

2

Place the bananas, with the peels on, in the oven for about 10 minutes until the skins become completely black. This will caramelize the banana and add more intense flavor to the bread, and also is a great trick if your bananas aren’t completely ripe. Let them cool.

3

Combine all of the dry ingredients – flour, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and salt in a large mixing bowl.

4

Mash the bananas using a fork and then whisk together with the egg, egg whites, yogurt, and peanut butter.

5

Pour the banana and egg mixture into the dry ingredients and fold together.

6

Pour everything into a bread pan, sprayed with non fat cooking spray, and cook for around 35 minutes or until bread has risen and a toothpick comes out clean.

This recipe seemed to be lacking in liquid. After everything was mixed together it was like crumbs but yet it said to "pour" into pan. I ended up adding milk to it, but bread came out very crumbly.
