Oh bread, how I adore you.
I will never understand the low carb diets. I mean, bread is my life. I have constantly stood by the fact that if I could only eat one food for the rest of my life, it would be a bread basket from a nice Italian restaurant. There are very few things that get me as excited as a warm crispy slice of bread. Okay, now I’m getting off track.
I am finally attempting a banana bread out of all my years of blogging. That’s crazy, as I feel that banana bread is always the first recipe everyone creates. This is not your average banana bread, no no no. This is a peanut butter banana bread. Yeah, I did that. I have become an avid peanut butter fan, so this was a long time coming. When I created this recipe, however, we had no actual peanut butter in our house, so I subbed it in with the powdered kind. It actually turned out really well, and I will be doing it again for sure!
I love crumbling this up on oatmeal, yogurt parfaits, or just eating it plain. There is really no way you can go wrong. It’s a great dish to make if you have a big event coming up, as it serves twelve. With that, let’s begin!
INGREDIENTS (Serves 12):
1 cup oats, ground up
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1/4 cup powdered peanut butter
1/2 cup applesauce, unsweetened
1/2 cup cashew (or milk of choice)
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp baking powder
Non stick spray
1.) Pre-heat our oven to 400 F on bake.
2.) In a bowl, combine your flours, spices, baking powder, powdered peanut butter, and mix well. This is key so that when you add your wet ingredients, you won’t get random clumps.
3.) Add your apple sauce, vanilla extract, egg, and mashed bananas. Mix very very well again.
4.) In a baking pan that has been lined with non stick spray, pour your mixture and smooth it out. Stick it in the oven for 45-50 minutes, or until golden brown. Take out and enjoy!
