Peanut Butter Banana Bread With Mini Peanut Butter Cups

What a simply wonderful breakfast or snack, banana bread makes.  This banana bread has a twist; it has  peanut butter in it.  But wait, it also has another special treat in it; mini peanut butter cups!  So don't throw out those squishy bananas, make a treat that the whole family will love!


  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 bananas (make sure that they are nice and mushy)
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter (I like to use crunchy)
  • A handful (or two) of mini peanut butter cups (I got mine from Trader Joe's, and oh my gosh, wow!)


Preheat the oven to 360 degrees F.

In a large bowl, mash the bananas.

Add the peanut butter, and stir until completely combined.

Add the eggs, and milk.  Stir until combined.

Stir in the flour 1/2 cup at a time.

Add the baking powder, sugar, and salt.

Mix in the peanut butter cups.

Melt the unsalted butter, and using a basting brush, evenly coat a pan.

Sprinkle the bottom of the pan with a mixture of 1/2 tablespoon of sugar and a sprinkle of nutmeg.

Transfer the batter into a Bakeware 9-by-5-Inch Loaf Pan or a glass bread pan.

Place the bread in the oven, and bake for 70 minutes.

What and easy and delicious treat!
