Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 3 large, very ripe bananas
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter plus 2 tablespoons for topping
  • 1/2 cup jelly of choice plus 2 tablespoons for topping

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and line a loaf pan with a piece of parchment paper.  Spray it with non-stick spray, and set aside. Sift together the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda in a large bowl. Set aside.

  2. In a bowl, using a handheld mixer, or a stand mixer; beat together the eggs, bananas, brown sugar, peanut butter, oil, and vanilla extract until combined. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and stir together, until combined.

  3. Spoon half of the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Dollop the jelly on to that half of the batter in the loaf pan, and swirl, using a knife or skewer. Pour the remaining batter on top. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. 

  4. Cool completely! Once the bread is cool, melt the 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, and 2 tablespoons of jelly in the microwave for about 15 seconds. Being so careful, because the jelly turns to liquid, and drizzle it on top! Slice and enjoy.
