Peanut Butter Banana Blender Bread recipe - this quick bread couldn't be faster to make! Mix all ingredients in a blender, pour into a pan and bake! No flour, no white sugar yet sweet and delicious!
With the school back in session and the weather in mid 70s, I am feeling the urge to start my fall baking. Muffins and quick breads come to mind first as they are such a great snack to add to your lunchbox or to grab and go. And then lets go a little further and make this a healthy snack. As in flourless and filling. And theeeeen - let's make it in a blender! As in throw the ingredients in and blend until smooth.
I took my very favorite Blender Muffin recipe and turned it into a bread. In place of chocolate chips, I made a brown sugar cinnamon swirl that is an unexpected sweet surprise. And we all love a good surprise. Especially a sweet one! 😀
I tested this recipe by baking it at 375 degrees F and the loaf had a cracked domed top which I love. If baked at 350 degrees F, the loaf will be flatter. Both loaves are equally moist and delicious. If your oven tends to run higher, I recommend baking it at 350 degrees F.
I slice the whole loaf of this bread and packed it into little sandwich ziploc bags and took on our road trip last week. My kiddos loved it! I knew they are getting a healthy and filling snack. My Hubby and I enjoyed few slices with our morning coffee this weekend and it was crazy good. My Husband is not a sweet bread loving person so to see him devouring few slices of this bread - I knew it was a winner recipe! 😀
