Ingredients 

  • 4 large overripe bananas (mashed (about 1½-2 cups))
  • cup avocado oil
  • 3 Tbsp Crazy Richard's peanut butter
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp molasses
  • tsp cinnamon extract
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp Celtic sea salt
  • cups white whole wheat flour

Pecan Topping

  • 2 Tbsp old fashioned oats
  • 2 Tbsp white whole wheat flour
  • 1 Tbsp sucanat
  • tsp cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp pecans (chopped)
  • Pinch of Celtic sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil (melted)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a loaf pan with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the mashed banana and avocado oil. Then add the peanut butter, sugar, molasses, and cinnamon extract.
  • Add the cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and flour and mix until just combined, being sure not to over mix.
  • Bake for about 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Enjoy!
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth out the top.

Topping

  • In a small bowl, mix the oats, flour, sucanat, cinnamon, pecans, and sea salt.
  • Add the coconut oil and mix it in.
  • Sprinkle the streusel on top of the bread and bake for about 70 minutes. A toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean when it is done.
  • Let cool before removing from pan and slicing. Enjoy!

Notes

This recipe can also make 12 muffins instead of a loaf of bread. They would need to bake for 15-20 minutes.
If you’re allergic to peanuts, any other nut or seed butter will work as a substitute.
If a tree nut allergy is a concern, omit the topping or replace the pecans with extra oats.
