Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Banana bread is one of my favourite loaves to bake and I like to make a different variation almost every time. Topped with some peanut butter icing and a few chocolate chips – this one takes the usual standard banana bread to a whole new gustatory level. Also being an egg-free banana bread, vegans can delight in the ability to indulge in this store cupboard staple too!

How to Make it

  • Line a 2lb loaf tin with baking paper and lightly grease with spray oil.
  • Blend together bananas, melted coconut oil, maple syrup, peanut butter, and non-dairy milk of choice in a high-speed blender.
  • Place the flour through to the salt into a large bowl. Add the banana puree mixture to the dry ingredients and stir to combine.
  • Place this relatively thick batter into the prepared tin. Spread evenly using the back of a spoon and bake in your preheated oven for 50 - 55 minutes (until a toothpick inserted comes out clean).
  • Allow to cool fully on a wire rack.
  • Mix together the icing ingredients in a bowl. Add as much liquid to achieve a thick yet spreadable icing.
  • Spread over the cooled loaf, sprinkle with cacao nibs (or mini chocolate chips if desired), slice and perhaps savour with a nice cup of tea...
