Cinnamon infused banana bread swirled with peanut butter and topped with a crunchy streusel, this bread is the perfect treat for any brunch or afternoon party!
This past weekend, my friend Margot hosted a 31 Bags party at her house. I’ve never been to one of these parties and to be honest, I didn’t know what 31 bags were before she told me about having her party. I looked over the catalog and they have a bag that could possibly hold my camera and my giant computer, so I’m excited! (Turns out – the bag won’t fit my laptop, but I did order lots of other great stuff!)
I offered to bake some yummies for the party. The party began at 11am, so Margot decided on a yogurt & fruit bar as well as serving mini quiches for her guests. We bothdecided a sliced sweet bread would go great with the breakfast/brunch theme!
And… if you know anything about me, I can never make anything the same way twice (why waste an opportunity for another blog post with a new recipe – ha ha!), I need to come up with something delicious and new.
I started with my daughter’s recipe for banana bread. It’s a classic and can be easily made with a variety of mix-ins or toppings. I decided on a peanut butter, cream cheese swirl though out the bread and a crunch streusel topping. This Peanut Butter Banana Bread will be perfect for the party!
I’m also making an oatmeal cookie for a sweet, but still “brunchy” dessert. At the time of writing this post, however, I had not decided what kind to make. So if you see a link somewhere, it means I made it and posted the recipe. If not, oh well! HA!
So, if you need a delicious, quick bread for a brunch or afternoon party… this bread is a perfect choice!
PS… Here’s a cute picture of me and Margot not too long ago! We ran the Pink up the Pace 5K with our babies in tow! So fun!
