Who likes bananas and peanut butter? Part II!

For my beloved box office peoples’ going away party I decided to make my peanut butter banana bread as a loaf and, as you know, they’re vegan, so, the bread was vegan! I found the base banana bread recipe here at Another One Bites the Crust (how much do you love that name?) and added my few little tweaks. It was delicious and had the same texture as normal banana bread! Hurray!

Read on for the recipe and photos…


2 bananas, mashed
1/4 – 1/2 cup natural chunky peanut butter (depending on your level of peanut butter obsession…mine is high so I went with 1/2 cup)

1/4 cup margarine, softened

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup soft whole wheat flour

1/4 tsp salt


  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • Mash the bananas (Hulk smash!) in a large bowl.
  • Add the peanut butter, margarine, and sugars. Cream.
  • Add in salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
  • Add in flours, slowly. Mix until just combined (once again, don’t overmix or you’ll knock out your rising agents!)
  • Bake in a greased and flour dusted loaf pan for 35 – 40 minutes until a cake tester comes out clean. If you’re using 1/2 cup peanut butter, it will probably need the full 40 minutes!
  • In an ideal world, you should let the loaf cool on a wire rack before eating it, but sometimes time (or your appetite) just doesn’t permit…
