Banana Bread with Peanut Butter Glaze

Baking is one of my favorite hobbies. I love trying out new recipes and tweaking them to get them just right. Today’s banana bread recipe is one that has been through a few different iterations.

I’ve never actually been a big fan of banana bread because I feel like it’s usually a bit on the dry side. After a lot of testing, though, I found a version that is delicious and moist! I mixed and matched a few recipes online and added a sweetened peanut butter glaze. 

We just made this recipe during our last snow day at home and it was the perfect way to warm up and fill the house with delicious smells. This recipe is even approved by my super picky toddler who proceeded to beg for “nana bread” for days!
