Peanut Butter-Banana Bread

I thought that nothing could be better than my original banana bread.  Until I made it into coconut French toast.  Then I thought that was the most amazing version of the bread, until I made this loaf.




Peanut butter banana bread.  Such an amazing idea.  I have peanut butter and bananas on my waffles every morning.  Why have I not thought to bake it into a loaf all together?


I made this bread Sunday morning.  Since then I've eaten at least half of it.  All on my own.  Nobody else in the house like banana bread (they're crazy).  I've had it for breakfast, my 4pm snack, my 10pm snack...  Someone needs to save me from myself and come over and eat the rest of the bread.


Maybe tomorrow I'll make this into French toast for breakfast.  That would be awesome.

Combine bananas, Greek yogurt, peanut butter, butter and eggs with a mixer on medium speed.  Add sugars and mix until smooth.

In a small bowl, whisk together flour, flaxseed, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and allspice.  Dump the dry ingredients into the wet and mix until just combined.  Stir in peanuts.
