I love food holidays and when I found out that March 1st was “National Peanut Butter Lovers Day” I was super psyched! I knew I just had to create something fantastic to share with all of you and get this holiday started on the right foot.
As a child I remember eating peanut butter sandwiches ( yes just peanut butter) and drinking milk to wash it down. I LOVED Peanut Butter and still do to this day. Of course these days we have a million and one kinds of butter ( Almond, Cashew, etc…) and yes I love those too! 🙂 Creating this recipe came from both my love of PB but also my love of banana bread and I thought, hey why can’t I make Peanut Butter bread? I mean that’s allowed right? This bread came out so good and instantly reminded me of my childhood the second I took a bite. I added Nutella® as another throwback to my childhood, because I mean really, come on, mixing these two together was the best decision ever and I hope you all agree when you make this and take your first bite.
If you want it without the glaze, by all means go for it! I just had to go overkill on the peanut butter and add it as a topping too. 😀 I never tried it with jam or jelly but I am sure it is equally as delicious.
So please, join me in celebrating this fun holiday and whip this recipe up!
Freshly baked, out of the oven
Look at that swirl!
Did I put enough glaze? 😀
