Gluten Free Mini Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Hey guys, it’s been a whirlwind few weeks. Some of you have been loyal readers for a while now, so you know I’ve been frantically getting ready for Mackenzie’s first birthday. We had a party for about 28 people (!!) so, lots of prep. I’ve been super limited on time for the blog so I’ve I’m sharing this gluten free Peanut Butter Banana Bread recipe that I shared on Food Fanatic a while back.

What I don’t think I shared with you was that Adam also celebrated a birthday, the day after Mackenzie. It’s been birthday overload and we’re all strung out on sugar and cake.

I’ve got some big plans for recipes this month/next month. I mentioned Adam had a birthday, which means cake. And by cake, I mean a special little chocolate cake with peanut butter and Reese’s involved. I’m keeping my lips sealed until I get the recipe up – it’s so amazing. You can see a sneak preview of it over on my Instagram feed though 😉

I’ve also got some granola, another oatmeal smoothie to share with you as soon as I start getting caught up on things. Speaking of getting caught up, I’ve been trying to transfer you email subscribers over to send me emails out through a new service. I’ll have more control over my email content and they’ll just look better in general.

However, this has been the biggest headache ever. I should have done it when there were only a few of you because I’m having to transfer subscribers over by hand. As in, copy and paste every single one of you into my new service. So, if you’re a subscriber and you’re no longer getting my emails, please let me know or resubscribe!

Since I’m doing it by hand, I’m bound to make a mistake and miss one of you. If you’re not currently a subscriber and wish to be, you can sign up here. I’d love to have you! That’s it for news, I need to get back to copy/pasting…

This gluten free peanut butter banana bread recipe can also be found over on Food Fanatic. Enjoy!

  6. Yum. I’m getting very hungry looking at all that tasty goodness in this cake. I love banana bread. Pinned!

  7. I have a slight obsession for peanut butter so this is right up my alley…..and the fact that they are mini makes them all the more desirable! (found you on Savoring Saturdays)

  8. oooh, I love banana bread, but especially when there is peanut butter! looks delicious

  9. bj says:

    Yum… sounds wonderful

  10. genie says:

    I like to add chocolate chips to banana bread, but I’m going to try the butterscotch. I’m sure they would be good.

  11. I love all things peanut butter and banana. It’s a blend that I use all the time and I think my next one is going to be these mini loaves. I just love them!

  12. I can just imagine how amazing it would be with some jam for breakfast 🙂 — another beautiful recipe, Sharon.

    Gosh, what a pain it must be to transfer the emails manually. I’m having to do a lot of manual transferring on my blog too with lots of things, so I can really relate. Hang in there and take lots of pb banana snack breaks 😉 You’ll get through it eventually!

    • Sharon says:

      All this back end stuff is so time consuming, I still have to update to Foodie Pro… so not looking forward to doing that! Though that’s not nearly as much work as re-branding!

  13. EA says:

    This looks SO good! My family and I are headed to Idaho for a ski trip in a couple of days/How thrilled would they all be if I pulled out some slices of this yummy PB Banana Bread on the plane?!! Congrats on the 1st b-day party! I’m sure you’re ready for a little R&R right about now 🙂

  14. Rachel E says:

    Wow! Cant’ believe I haven’t thought of banana’s and peanut butter together in a bread! You are amazing! Can’t wait to try it!

  15. jules says:

    Peanut butter and banana sandwiches are my favorites, so this has just GOT to be good! I could skip the peanut butter and banana and just eat the bread!!! 🙂
    Keep ’em coming, Sharon!

  16. That is one of the best combos! PB and banana!
