Peanut Butter Apple & Banana Bread

It’s almost halfway through the semester and I still feel like I haven’t gotten used to schoolwork.

ANYWAY! Fall is here, and my baking spirit is kindled once again. With the coming of this season there is so much to enjoy – foliage, pumpkin, apple picking, nice and breezy weather, allergies, midterms (wait…)

On a late night whim, I decided to put my oven to use and whipped up a nice loaf of bread. It may look like banana bread, but it comes with a twist of crunchy peanut and a burst of apple flavor perfect for the fall.

I eat toast with peanut butter and bananas all the time and I love it, so the smell oozing out from my oven was absolutely irresistible.

You will need:

1 egg1/2 cup brown sugar

1/3 canola oil (or any other form of liquid oil will suffice)

1/4 granulated sugar

1/3 cup milk (I used almond milk)

1/4 cup chunky peanut butter

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking power

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup mashed bananas (I used 2 large bananas)

1 cup apple, chopped up into really small pieces!

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Butter a 9×5-inch loaf pan and set aside.
  2. Add the the first seven (bolded) ingredients into a mixing bowl and whisk to combine.
  3. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and fold with a spatula or stir gently with a spoon until just combined.
  4. Add the bananas, apples, and fold gently.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about an 50-60 minutes, or until the top is nice and golden. You might want to stick a toothpick or a wooden chopstick in and make sure it comes out clean.
  6. Let it cool for about thirty minutes.

Voila!
