Peanut Butter Banana Bread
As I've mentioned before, the more varieties of banana bread you have to choose from, the better. At least in my opinion. And again, in my opinion, this is one of the best. Peanut butter and bananas? In a form that you can eat for breakfast? Yes, please.
You'll need your mixer for this, but it comes together quickly. Combine the bananas, yogurt,
butter, peanut butter,
and eggs in a large bowl. Beat until creamy. Add the sugar and brown sugar,
and mix until well combined. Then add the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon
and allspice. Beat just until all the ingredients are incorporated. Stir in the chopped peanuts.
Transfer the batter to a greased loaf pan and bake for an hour or so until the top is golden and a toothpick comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove and cool completely on a wire rack.
Now for the really good part - the peanut butter glaze!! In a small bowl, combine the powdered sugar, peanut butter
and milk. Whisk until smooth, then drizzle over the cooled bread.
This is a beautiful bread,
and it tastes as good (or better) than it looks. And the best part? It's a Cooking Light recipe. So you can eat several slices at a time...
