A classic breakfast would have to be bacon and eggs. Well, not in my books. I enjoy a toasted nutella/banana slices or a peanut butter/banana sandwich. Not the healthiest but certainly a good pick-me-up in the morning.
It is difficult to resist The Peanut Butter Boy's recipe on Dark Choc Peanut Butter Bread. It's lovely to have a few recipes in your file that requires minimum effort but impressive results. This is one of them.
It does not require a handmixer. Just a good jug and a handy fork. The end result is the house smelling wonderfully inviting and slices of bread to boot. It's quite dense-and sort of in between a cake and a bread but certainly lovely to munch on.
I halved this recipe as the original one was for 2. However, I kept the quantity of mashed banana as it was. I love a good bread with a strong banana taste.
