Peanut Butter Banana Bread Recipe

Seriously guys, this is the easiest and most simple bread recipe ever. It takes me about ten minutes of prep and an hour in the oven to bake. The combination of peanut butter and banana is delicious, as we all know, and its even better in bread! I will normally eat a slice for breakfast in the mornings.  The addition of flax-seed adds omega-3’s, fiber, and antioxidants into the mix.  The bread is dense and filling and tastes good with pretty much any type of topping (jelly, butter, almond butter, peanut butter, etc.). Hope you guys enjoy!
