    Wonderful peanut butter banana bread! And so easy to make. This is my new “best banana bread” recipe. THANK YOU.

  2. I made this tonight doubled the recipe but misread the butter I put in a cup instead of a half a cup. Batter was nice and thick so figured let’s give it a shot. Husband usually waits till after 7 for a snack he could not make it to 6:30. He said the only thing that would have made it better is if it had chocolate chips in it. Told I would put them in next time.
