Peanut Butter Streusel Banana Bread REcipe

Peanut Butter Streusel Banana Bread

 Quick, moist banana bread made with yogurt and maple syrup and topped with a crumbly peanut butter streusel topping.

 Peanut butter and bananas complement each other in this quick sweet bread.  This breakfast bread is super moist and flavorful with a peanut butter crumb topping.

Banana bread is such a timeless classic recipe that can be enjoyed over and over again.  I have fond memories baking all sorts of banana breads with my Nana in the kitchen when I was growing up.  It made an appearance at most holiday parties as well.  Banana bread has stood the test of time.

Banana Bread with Peanut Butter Streusel Topping

This recipe couldn’t be any easier to prepare.  Minimal ingredients and preparations make this a must-have recipe to keep.  Simply combine all the ingredients for the bread together and mix, then pour into a prepared loaf pan.  Sprinkle with a peanut butter streusel topping and pop it in the oven and enjoy how nice your house smells for the next couple of hours.  I love the the aroma of banana bread baking.  The spices complement the banana so well.  When baking banana bread, you want to be sure not to over mix the batter.  No body likes a tough bread

With this recipe, we replaced the eggs and butter with healthy yogurt and pure maple syrup.  The result is the same great taste with half the calories and fat.  That means, more bread to eat without the guilt!
