I can’t wait for you guys to try this Peanut Butter Banana Bread with Peanut Butter Glaze. It is so good! As I have said many times, I make a lot of banana bread throughout the year. Really, it’s almost a staple at our house.
Sure there are a lot of great banana bread recipes out there; but I especially like this one because it has all of my favorite elements in it. I took my favorite parts of numerous recipes, put them all together, added a little glaze and I’m happy to say, this is what you get!
Just like any other recipe, you certainly change out any of the ingrdients and these banana mini loaves will turn out just fine.
These also freeze very nicely! Although, if you freeze them, I urge you to wait with the glaze until you thaw them again. That’s one thing I really like about banana bread; it freezes well. These also make a great gift.
PEANUT BUTTER BANANA MINI LOAVES WITH PEANUT BUTTER GLAZE
1 box (15.25 to 18.25 ounces) yellow cake mix
1 package (3.4 ounce) Banana Cream instant pudding
4 eggs, at room temperature
1 cup vanilla almond milk (water also works fine)
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup Planters Banana Granola Nut Peanut Butter (you can also use regular peanut butter)
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 3)
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2-3 tablespoons Planters Banana Granola Nut Peanut Butter
2 tablespoons Coffee mate Natural Bliss Sweet Cream Creamer (you could use regular instead)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 5 foil mini loaf pans with cooking spray; set aside.
2. Beat cake mix, instant pudding, eggs, water and oil in a large bowl with mixer for two minutes, or until well blended. Add bananas, peanut butter and chocolate chips, mix just until blended.
3. Pour mixture into 5 foil mini loaf pans sprayed with cooking spray.
4. Bake 40 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely. When cool, make the glaze. In a small bowl, combine all ingredients well with a small whisk. Drizzle on top of the banana bread.
MM TIP: I frequently use Planters Banana Granola Nut Peanut Butter in baking, but you don’t have to. Regular peanut butter will work just fine. FYI – occasionally I can find the small jars of the Banana Granola Peanut Butter at the Dollar Store. You might want to check your nearby Dollar Store.
