I am a big fan of peanut butter (love it with sliced apple, pear or even grapefruit) BUT in this recipe it completely overwhelms the banana flavor. I used three ripe bananas and still only a hint of flavor. Yes it was moist but next time I’ll omit the peanutbutter!

This was so good I ate a half of loaf. I used applesauce instead of butter as usual in my recipes and

I had no flax.

Perfect balance of moisture, sweetness and texture. Not oily, super sweet and spongy like other recipes. I substituted Almond butter for Peanut butter - my daughter is allergic, and substituted Chia seeds for ground flax. Also added a few dark choc. chips! and omitted glaze. This recipe is a keeper.

I don't know if I used a bad brand of flax, but the canola-oil like flavor overpowered the bread. It was awful. Each bite tasted like I was doing a shot of cooking oil.

This is a good way to change up banana bread. I didn't bother with the glaze. The only other changes I made were to use low-fat chunky peanut butter and since I was out of ground flax seed, I substituted ground millet instead. I needed a total of 65 minutes to completely bake this loaf. Will definitely make this from time to time.

I originally rated this one as 3 stars, but I made the recipe again recently with the following changes and the bread is now 5-star! 1) subsituted the flax seed for whole wheat flour; 2) Added lightly salted peanuts (not chopped) and 1/4 cup each of bittersweet & semi-sweet chocolate chips. 3) skipped the glaze. 4) used 2 large ripe bananas (I previously had only used 1) & 5) used Low-Fat Greek Yogurt (additional protein; bonus!) WOW is all I have to say; excellent banana bread. Super moist with nice texture from the big pieces of peanut and that little something extra in the chocolate chips to give you an afternoon "pick-me-up" at your desk. Will absolutely keep this one in mind for the extra bananas that are too ripe to enjoy, but great for baking. Enjoy!

I wanted to make this lower in fat but didn't want to open a whole can of applesauce for a few TB. Was melting the butter and forgot to add it. It still turned out great, not dry as I thought it might. It's not fat free certainly because of the peanut butter, but hey.....!

I would like to give this 3.5 stars. It was very moist. Overall a very good recipe, didn't have the flaxseed or the plain yogurt so used vanilla yogurt. Next time I would try more peanut butter because I would like more than just a hint.

This was seriously the yummiest bread I have ever made! I didn't have flax, so I subbed oatmeal, and left out the nuts. It has this great dense texture - really moist, and just slightly sweet. I recommend making while listening to Josh Groban.

I've made this 4 times now and i still get requests for it constantly. I used more peanuts than the recipe requires and i double up on the glaze because that tends to be everyone's favorite part. It is sweet and stays moist. I think i must keep making this forever.

Rating: 5 stars


Great recipe! Peanut butter adds a nice, subtle richness to this classic bread. I didn't have peanuts, so I didn't use them, but other than that followed the recipe exactly. My only suggestion would be to add a little less milk in the glaze, and then add more if you need to thin it. Mine turned out too runny. Everyone loved this bread! Will make again.

The banana bread is good. Definitely lacking in peanutty flavor. Kids liked it as a basic banana bread. The peanut butter seemed to enhance the banana flavor, but we would have liked a more intense peanut flavor. The glaze was great. Next time we will serve it spooned over the slices instead of over the top of the bread.

Absolutely delicious! I tweaked the recipe a bit by using plain honey yogurt and omitting the flaxseed and peanuts. Also, instead of adding chocolate chips I used dark chocolate peanut butter. Surprisingly, the chocolate pb had fewer calories than the original pb. It was so moist and yummy straight out of the oven!

This is really amazing banana bread. We're not really waiting until it's completely cool and it's still slicing very nicely. The glaze really made it - we tasted it without first and it's 100% improved with the glaze! My only changes were to use vanilla yogurt instead of plain and wheat germ instead of flaxseed because it's what I had.

I also used 1/2 unbleached white and 1/2 whole wheat flour. AMAZING!!!

This is indeed a "good" recipe, but not much more. I liked the regular banana bread recipe from this issue, as well as the bananas foster bread, much better.

OMG....awesome! This recipe rocks! I love toasting and putting peanut butter on regular banana bread, so when I saw this recipe, I figured it had to be good with peanut butter cooked into the bread. There were only two ingredient changes that I made, only because I didn't want to haul 2 kids to the store to get them, so I improvised. Instead of using the plain yogurt, I subbed with Buttermilk and instead of using peanuts in the bread, I used Chunky peanut butter in the mix, instead of creamy and then added some chopped up walnuts. The glaze on top of the bread was also delicious...So good! Very moist! It is a Keeper!

I've shared it with some coworkers, who also love it. :)

Very tasty! Used whole wheat flour and substituted 1/3c Splenda for the white sugar. Baked it for 55 min instead of the 65 min (and probably could have taken it out a couple minutes sooner). Next time I think I'll add chocolate chips like the other reviewers suggested. Definitely worth making!!

As usual I had over-ripe bananas, so I decided to try a new version of banana bread. I used 4 bananas and less fat than indicated (I used 2 tbsp of canola oil) and made it with Splenda.

This was a great surprise (had my doubts and only made it b/c I had overripe bananas and read the 5-star reviews). The banana and peanut butter are perfectly balanced - both come through and neither overpowers.

Will definitely make this again. Very moist.

This was a HUGE hit with the whole family. By adding the peanut butter, it gives it more protein and therefore a better 'Meal' on it's own. Also I substituted Whole Wheat Pastry Flour and only made 1/4 the amount of topping, which I drizzled over the top so that it would have less sugar. It turned out FABULOUS! Very moist.
