Peanut Butter Banana Bread Cake Recipe

Sharing is caring!

We all know that banana bread is great, but when you add in peanut butter, it’s out of this world crazy good. I’ve been known to eat peanut butter by the spoonful from the jar without shame so pairing it up with some substance just totally takes it over the top 

And the best part? We all know that peanut butter and bananas were just meant to be. There’s something amazing about the combination that will just keep pulling you back for more. 

Can you use frozen bananas in this recipe as well?

For sure. I’m totally guilty of buying a zillion bananas and then watching them all sadly spoil on my counter. And instead of tossing them in the trash, I’ve found that peeling away the peel and putting them in the freezer is an awesome hack to know.

That way, when the craving strikes for pure heaven in your mouth, you already have your ripe bananas on hand and you just have to let them thaw for a few moments of time. 

And since we’re talking about all things peanut butter, make certain to whip up a batch of these Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookies, too. Because you seriously can never have too much peanut butter, ever. 

Tips for making this Peanut Butter Banana Bread Recipe

I’m in love with this recipe for so many reasons. First off, it’s carbs. (yay!) And secondly, there’s also Reese’s in this recipe, too. The recipe tells you to cut them into fourths for size but that’s totally up to you and your want. 

I’ve made this bread with giant chunks of Reese’s in it and I’m not hating it at all. It just gives me that much more flavor of peanut butter and chocolate and that’s a-okay with me.

This banana bread recipe will have you racing to the kitchen in hopes that your bananas are ripened and ready for baking!
