Peanut Butter Banana Bread

One of my all time favorite things to eat is banana bread. So flavorful and moist. I will eat banana bread for breakfast dessert or a snack in the middle of the day. This is a very simple recipe, and best of all it is a quick recipe so you can enjoy this tasty treat shortly after you start making it.

Pre-heat your oven to 350F grease the inside of a 1 pound loaf pan with butter, and dust with sugar. Tap the pan making sure to cover the bottom and the sides are covered with the sugar tap out any extra sugar.

The key to all banana bread is very ripe bananas. You want them beyond the point where you would peel and eat them. They should be black or at the very least streaked with black and brown.

Take 3 extremely ripe bananas peel and place in a bowl and mash with a fork. Add 2 eggs, 1 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup and 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil and mix until combined. In a separate bowl whisk together 1-1/2 cups of all purpose flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix by hand just until incorporated, do not over mix or the bread will be too dense.

Fold in 1/2 cup of peanut butter chips. Then poor the batter into the greased loaf pan. Sprinkle the top with turbinado sugar.

Bake at 350F for 60-75 minutes, until a tooth pick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the loaf pan for 10 minutes, then remove from the loaf pan and allow to cool on a rack until completely cool before slicing.
