Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Banana Bread



  • 1 & 1/2 C whole wheat pastry flour (NOT regular WW flour — too dense)
  • 3/4 C oats
  • 1/3 C brown sugar (or 1/2 C if you like your bread sweeter)
  • 1/4 C finely ground flaxseed
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon


  • 1 & 1/4 C milk
  • 1/3 C creamy peanut butter (I used salted)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 large very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350.

In two separate bowls, mix dry, then wet, and then combine, adding wet to dry and stirring gently until the mixture is uniform-ish.

Pour mixture into a non-stick or cooking sprayed bread/loaf pan (mine is 9×5) and sprinkle oats on top to make it look pretty.

Bake 1 hour — do a fork check near the end to test done-ness. Enjoy!

    This looks unreal and pretty easy to make! I made a sort f similar breakfasty bread with Whole Wheat Flour! I love baking with Whole Wheat Flour as opposed to all purpose because it tastes so much more filling!

    Mine did not turn out so well. Very moist, but very little flavor. I used crunchy peanut butter instead and that was the only thing different. Maybe it needed more bananas? Was hoping I found a healthier banana bread recipe. :-(

    What kind of creamy peanut butter do you like to use for this recipe, a coarser, “natural” style that has to be stirred before use, or a smoother, more finely processed version?

    Just made this! Smells delicious. I made it with fresh peanut butter straight outta the food processor. We shall see how it turned out!

    Is there something that can be subtituted for flax seeds ?

    I just baked this and it was deeelicious! So happy i could use whole wheat flour and the super ripe bananas on my counter. I threw in 1/2 a cup of chocolate chips and it was so great. Thanks for the recipe!!

    Is the 350 in Fahrenheit or Degrees C? As it’s American I’m assuming F?

    Can you substitute non-dairy milk? If so, which one works best?

    What can you do in place of the eggs to make it vegan?
