Whole Wheat Banana & Peanut Butter Bread

bananabread2I’ve made this quick bread a few times now and it’s really delicious! Not too sweet and the peanut butter blends wonderfully with the banana flavor.

The original recipe was from the Cookin Canuck – Peanut Butter and Banana Whole Wheat Quick Bread

I typically modify or adjust recipes and this one was no exception, I subbed coconut oil for the canola oil, and I don’t like using sugar at all so I swapped that out for honey. Also increased the cinnamon since I love that flavor!

4 ripe bananas, mashed
1/3 Cup plain Greek yogurt
1/3 Cup peanut butter (I used Trader Joe’s natural creamy peanut butter)
3 Tbsp Coconut Oil (may have to heat to get it melted)
1/2 Cup Honey
2 Eggs
1 and 1/2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
3 Tbsp Ground Flax Seed
3/4 Tsp Baking Soda
1/2 Tsp Salt
1-2 Tsp Ground Cinnamon

To prepare:

In small bowl combine the Flour, Flax Seed, Baking Soda, Salt and Cinnamon stirring well.

In separate larger bowl Mash the bananas (potato masher works well!). Add the Greek Yogurt, Peanut Butter and melted Coconut Oil and stir to combine

Add the Honey and stir to combine

Add the Eggs and stir to combine

Gradually add the Flour mix to the banana/egg mix and stir just until combined – don’t over-mix!

Pour into 9″ Loaf pan coated with cooking spray

Bake at 350 for about an hour (start checking at 45-50 minutes) until toothpick comes out clean when inserted in center

Cool completely and Enjoy!
