Reese's Pieces Peanut Butter Banana Bread... Surprise Recipe Swap






Another month has gone by and it's time for Surprise Recipe Swap! Thanks again to Jutta, from Hungry Little Girl for hosting every month! A group of bloggers get together and on the 20th of every month we post a recipe that we made from the blog we were assigned to for that month.

The blog I got for the month of March is Hun... What's for Dinner? I had such a fun time browsing through Cindy's recipes. It was so hard to choose which one I was going to make. I decided on this awesome recipe for Peanut Butter Banana Bread! I just love the Reese's Pieces added in and the peanut butter glaze drizzled on top makes it so delicious! This recipe is easy to make and everyone will love it. Make sure you stop by Cindy's blog and check out the great recipes she has!


Peanut Butter Banana Bread (print recipe)

What you need:
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 egg
2 large ripe bananas, mashed
1 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup Reese's Pieces candy

Glaze:
1 tablespoon peanut butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1-2 tablespoons milk

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8.5x 4.5 inch loaf pan with cooking spray. 

In a medium bowl, beat the peanut butter and sugar , until well combined. Add the egg and melted butter, mix well. Mix in the bananas. Next, sift in the flour and baking powder, mix until combined. Fold in the Reeses Pieces. Pour into loaf pan, spread with a spatula, and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove from the pan and cool on a wire rack. 

Glaze:
Whisk together the peanut butter, powdered sugar and milk until well combined in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir and another 30 seconds, repeating until heated though. Drizzle over the loaf.
