Successful Together: Peanut Butter Banana Bread {Secret Recipe Club}

Peanut Butter Banana Bread {Secret Recipe Club}

Another month, with another wonderful Secret Recipe Club assignment! If you are new to my blog and are unsure of what the Secret Recipe Club is, each month the members are secretly assigned another member from the group, and then we go and find an irresistible recipe to recreate and post on our own blog.  It is so much fun to browse through the other blogs and find awesomely wonderful recipes to make :)  A big shout out to Amanda, the founder of this wonderful club, and to Suzanne, the hostess of group B who helps us keep all of our stuff together :).

This month, I was assigned Allison's Blog, Sweet Flours. Allison is from the West Coast and she also has another blog site called Have the Cake. I highly suggest checking out both pages!  Her blog is full of so many wonderful recipes, with such a great variety of ingredients, I was having trouble choosing! Would it be the Pepperoni Pizza Puffs, Pesto Meatballs, or Jalapeno Sausage Cheese and Egg Braid? I actually ended up baking, and making the Peanut Butter Banana Bread :) Thank you for being in the SRC Allison and allowing me the chance to wander around your blog and discover tons of yummy new recipes! <3 I didn't have an actual loaf pan, so I baked this in a 2 quart baking dish and will have wide thin slices :) Allison also added a glaze to her bread, which I decided against for the time being but I will probably try it later!
