Peanut Butter Banana Bread Recipe (and Mighty Nut Giveaway!)

Disclaimer: Through my affiliation with Fit Approach, I received two bottles of Mighty Nut Powdered Peanut Butter in exchange for this recipe and review.  As always, all opinions are my own.

Now that I’m well into the third trimester of my pregnancy, I’m constantly on the search for easy to grab, yet still healthy, snacks.  And if my snacks aren’t processed, that’s even better.  I’ve always been a fan of easy to make and eat snack breads, but never before thought to add peanut butter to any of those recipes.

That’s where Mighty Nut Powdered Peanut Butter entered the picture.

Recently, Peanut Butter & Co introduced their new powdered peanut butter line called Mighty Nut.  Each batch of Mighty Nut is made from quality USA grown peanuts.  The peanuts are roasted, then pressed, in order to remove the majority of the fat.  And what’s left is protein, fiber, and the delicious peanut butter taste that so many people love.

Mighty Nut is currently available in four flavors:

Original
Vanilla
Chocolate
Flax & Chia

After I received my two bottles of Mighty Nut Powdered Peanut Butter I immediately started brainstorming how I could incorporate this protein source into a snack recipe.  The idea for Peanut Butter Banana Bread was then born.

peanut butter banana bread

Ingredients:

1 ½ cups all purpose flour
¾ tsp salt
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp ground cinnamon
½ cup Mighty Nut Powdered Peanut Butter
¼ cup butter, softened
½ cup sugar
½ cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 tbl vanilla extract
3 ripe bananas, mashed
Shortening

Instructions:

  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, powdered peanut butter, and cinnamon.
  3. Beat the butter and sugar together with a mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, followed by the vegetable oil and vanilla extract.
  4. Beat in the flour mixture.
  5. Fold in the mashed bananas.
  6. Using shortening, grease an 8-by-4-inch loaf pan. Pour the batter into the greased pan.
  7. Bake for about 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean.
  8. Cool the bread in the pan for 15 minutes, then continue cooling on a baking rack until cooled completely.

    I’d love to try the Vanilla flavor!

  2. I’d enjoy trying the Flax and Chia – I tried the Original and it is great for baking as you say, I used it in my peanut butter mug cake recipe!

  3. YUM!!! I’d like to try the PB flavor!

  4. Elle says:

    I love powdered peanut butter and am happy to see a few more on the market!

  5. I’m going to have to go with the Chocolate cause there just isn’t a better combination than PB & Chocolate lol! Thanks for this!!!

  6. I’m so sad I’m allergic to peanuts. Peanut Butter & Co used to be my fave! They’re shop in NYC is the best. I need to talk to them about making an almond butter alternative… though I suppose that goes against their name…

  7. I would like to try the original flavor sprinkled over my morning oatmeal with some banana and bacon…Elvis style!

  8. Alicen Ronan says:

    This sounds great! I have been really interested in seeing all the different ways this product could be used and I haven’t been disappointed in the array of tasty-sounding stuff that I’ve seen. I love the idea of combing peanut/banana flavor into bread without having to add the extra fat you’d get with regular peanut butter.

  9. SuzLyfe says:

    mmmmm this sounds amazing. I haven’t bought any bananas since the marathon–this will give me an excuse!

  10. Peanut butter and bananas are a GREAT combo!

  11. I want to try the vanilla flavor!

  12. cassi9879 says:

    You know, I’ve never put peanut butter in my banana bread before. Everyone loves it as is.

  13. I make Banana bread all the time, but I never thought about peanut butter banana bread. Let me tell you something funny, I actually buy banana’s sometimes and let them go to the yuck brown on purpose just to make banana bread. 3-4 days sitting in the sun on my counter usually does the trick, LOL

  19. This sounds yummy, but we have a nut allergy over here. No Mighty Nut for me. :o(
