i heart peanut butter and honey... so let's make a loaf!
yes... I know - another post - another peanut butter recipe. I'm obsessed. I know - so forgive me for always using peanut butter in my baking - you can always use regular ol' butter - I'm sure the loaf will be lovely... but this is REALLY lovely ;0)
Deb and Brynn again assisted me with putting this together - and we learnt an important thing... changing ingredients does change bake times. Because I used clover honey instead of brown sugar -I should have decreased my baking time by 15 minutes and I should have turned the oven down a little... lesson learned - the final product still tasted great - and I'll make this recipe again.
I'd also like to thank Deb for her photos - she not only helped with the baking, but she also took pictures of the goods. All pictures on this blog (except the pb&j cookie one) are all thanks to Deb. Thank you!
Peanut Butter & Honey Banana Loaf
3 x bananas, mashed
3/4 c. clover honey
1/4 c. peanut butter (use crunchy if you like)
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 c. buttermilk
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 c. oat bran
1/2 c. oats
3/4 c. whole wheat flour
1 tsp. b. soda
heat your oven to 325 F (this is the new temperature, Deb and I baked the original loaf in a 350 F oven)
beat the peanut butter and honey together. Add the mashed bananas, eggs, buttermilk & vanilla. Beat until well blended.
combine the oat bran, oats, flour and b. soda together. Add this to the wet mixture and stir until just combined.
pour into a loaf pan (we baked 2 loafs with this batch)
Bake 55 minutes (again, new time) until the top is springy to the touch.
