Peanut Butter & Jelly Banana Bread
We're sharing one of our favorite recipes from Heather's book, Crazy Easy Vegan Desserts! Here's how you make this Peanut Butter & Jelly Banana Bread. (Warning: it's hard not to eat the entire loaf in one sitting.)
1 cup GF flour, 3/4 tsp baking soda, 1/4 tsp salt, 4 tbsp palm shortening, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar, 1/2 cup mashed ripe banana, 13 cup natural no-stir peanut butter, 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce, 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, 2 1/2 tbsp strawberry jam, divided
- Preheat the oven to 325°. Lightly spray a loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the shortening and sugars. Add the mashed banana, peanut butter, applesauce and vanilla, and continue mixing. Slowly add the flour mixture and blend until smooth.
- Spread half of the batter in the prepared pan. Drop 1½ tablespoons of jam on top and swirl the jam through the batter with a knife, covering the surface evenly. Spread the remaining batter on top. Drop the remaining 1 tablespoon of jam on top and swirl through the batter with a knife.
- Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with moist, crumbs attached, 60 to 70 minutes. Let cool before serving.
