  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 4x8-inch loaf pan.
  2. Beat peanut butter and shortening in a bowl. Gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Beat one egg into peanut butter mixture until completely blended before beating in the second egg. Stir in mashed banana.
  3. Combine flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in a bowl. Stir flour mixture into banana mixture alternately with buttermilk, mixing until batter is just blended. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour.

I love this recipe! I am picky about my banana breads too, had to try this one because of the peanut butter, so glad I did! ! went with 1/2 Whole wheat & 1/2 White flour, used butter instead of ...

I found it to be very dry and I couldn't really taste the peanut butter. The only alterations I made was to use butter in place of the shortening and we added mini choco chips. Maybe I'll make a...
