Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Banana Bread

gluten-free peanut butter bread

This gluten-free peanut butter banana bread is the bread of my dreams.

As a kid, I never really liked PB&J.

Looking back, I think I was crazy because it’s such an unreal combination. Nowadays, I head towards a more nutritious version of the OG PB&J, with homemade bread and jam.

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350.

When I’m done making the bread, I like to serve it warm with some peanut butter frosting, or blueberry jam, or both!

It’s a win-win situation really.

If you are looking to make some quick homemade jam here is my easy recipe: heat 2 cups of blueberries on medium until the fruit begins to bubble. Add-in 2 tbsp of chia seeds, and 1 tbsp of maple syrup.

Done! So easy, and so yummy.

As always, if you make this recipe, let me know! I always love seeing pictures of recreations and hearing your thoughts.
