Ingredients

  • 3 overripe bananas mashed
  • 1 ½ cups cake flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs (room temperature)
  • ½ cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F and line an 8"x4" loaf pan with parchment paper. Spray with nonstick baking spray, then set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together bread flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together butter and sugars until thoroughly combined, about 1-2 minutes. Add mashed bananas, eggs, greek yogurt, and vanilla bean paste, then whisk until smooth.
  • Gently fold dry ingredients into wet ingredients just until barely combined and no streaks of flour remain. Pour half of banana bread mixture into prepared loaf pan.
  • Place peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl (I use a 2 cup measuring cup) and heat for 30-45 seconds in a microwave until smooth and creamy. Pour have of melted peanut butter on top, then use a clean knife to swirl into the batter. Repeat with remaining banana bread batter and peanut butter, swirling again with a clean knife. 
  • Bake in the center of a preheated oven for 50-55 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the cake comes out clean. Rest for 10 minutes before moving to a cooling rack. Allow to cool completely before slicing.
