Peanut Butter Bread is a super simple, but tasty bread that you can prepare in a blender! Add a banana to the mix and you get a subtle banana taste that pairs so nicely with the peanut butter flavor. Made in partnership with KitchenAid, this bread is a must-try. If you make it, show me by taking a photo and using #MakeItTogether! It’s a delicious breakfast food or anytime treat!

Peanut Butter Bread
Who knew that you could have a loaf of freshly baked bread without all the fuss of kneading the dough and letting it rise? This quick bread is even quicker than other quick bread recipes since all the mixing is done in a blender!!! I used my KitchenAid K400 Blender for this recipe, and it could not have been easier, using the 5-speed variable dial to make this simple, yet oh-so-delicious bread.
What Does This Bread Taste Like?
It is subtle and sweet. Perfect for breakfast, (I love it toasted with more peanut butter smothered on- you can see it in the very last picture), a snack, or for a PB&J sandwich! Quite frankly, every time I make it, it’s gone before I can think about leftovers! 🙂
Peanut Butter Bread Recipe
Quick bread is a bread that is made without using yeast as a leavening agent. That is good news at a time when yeast can be hard to find. Be sure to check out my list of Quick Bread Recipes for more quick bread options!
- Whole milk (You could also use milk lower in fat if that is all you have on hand. Or, give almond milk a try!)
- Eggs–room temperature
- Granulated sugar
- Peanut butter–I used creamy peanut butter, but you could also use crunchy.
- Banana–This is a great recipe to use up that ripe, uneaten banana. We tested this recipe with 1 banana as well as 2 bananas. There isn’t a huge taste difference, but when adding 2 bananas the bread didn’t rise quite as high and seems a bit denser. That was not a bad thing! Both were delicious.
- Kosher salt
- Baking powder
- All-purpose flour
How to Make Peanut Butter Bread
All you need is a blender and the ingredients to make this Peanut Butter Bread. Begin by adding the milk, eggs, sugar, peanut butter, and banana to the blender jar. Make sure the lid is on tightly and blend all the ingredients together until you have a smooth mixture.
Next, add the salt, baking powder, and flour to the blender and blend until the flour is incorporated. Then, prepare an 8×4-inch loaf pan by spraying it with nonstick spray and pour the bread batter into the loaf pan. Bake for about 50 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out with just moist crumbs on it (not batter).
Let the bread cool in the pan for about ten minutes before transferring it onto a cooling rack. Serve with peanut butter, a little honey, or both!
Keep the loaf of bread stored at room temperature, wrapped in plastic wrap, for up to three days. If you want to freeze the bread, make sure to let it cool completely. Then, wrap the bread tightly with aluminum foil or plastic freezer wrap and place in a heavy-duty freezer bag.
If you prefer not to use foil directly on your bread, wrap it tightly with parchment paper, then place that into a sealable plastic bag. Be sure to label it with the date. Bread is typically good for three to six months in the freezer, but the flavor will start to dull after about 1 month. To thaw bread, take it out of the freezer and set it on the counter. Allow it to reach room temperature before you take it out of its packaging. It will re-absorb some of its moisture this way.
