  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

For the Peanut Butter Drizzle (Optional):

Step 1: Preheat the Oven

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan.

Step 2: Mix the Wet Ingredients

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the mashed bananas, smooth peanut butter, softened unsalted butter, and granulated sugar. Mix until the ingredients are well blended.

Step 3: Combine the Dry Ingredients

  1. In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt.

  2. After 10 minutes, transfer the bread to a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 6: Prepare the Peanut Butter Drizzle (Optional)

  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, heat the smooth peanut butter for about 20-30 seconds or until it’s easily pourable.
