There are endless recipe ideas in my mind involving peanut butter and chocolate, right? This Peanut Butter Caramel Banana Bread will make the decision on picking a recipe to make even harder... but as Meredith Grey once said; "Pick ME. Choose ME. Love ME." This recipe is just amazing and delicious that you can skip this.
The best combination of flavors in a delicious vegan, low carb and gluten free cake! Even though this is a healthy recipe it's also filled with flavors textures and nutrients that will be delighting your taste buds in every bite.
If you have been around my blog for a while now you may now that I love incorporating protein powders into my recipe because it's a great way to increase the amino acids in a recipe and it also makes it low carb.
In this occasion I used 22 Days Organic Vegan Protein Powder in Peanut Butter flavor, just epic and versatile to use. It also serves the function of adding that peanut butter flavor into the banana bread.
Along with that protein, we've got some extra ingredients that will increase the nutritional profile of this insanely delicious bread such as bananas, dark vegan chocolate and peanut. The caramel sauce is from my Dulce de Leche Brownies, the recipe is super easy to make as well and make such a great topping.
Overall, here's what you'll need for this Peanut Butter Caramel Banana Bread recipe:
Granulated monk fruit (PURELYHL for discount)
Dairy free yogurt
Water or almond milk
Roasted peanuts (salty brings up great flavors!)
Low carb chocolate bar (I used Pili Hunters)
The combination of flavors is just perfect, kind of a snickers bars but healthy, low carb and vegan. Simple and made with basic ingredients! If you are not strict dairy free or you are vegetarian you can use regular greek yogurt for this recipe as well.
There are two secrets to step up the game of this recipe:
Use salted peanuts on top.
Air fry the slices of bread once it's baked for 10 minutes!
You'll see that the salt of the roasted peanuts blends very well with the sweetness of the chocolate, caramel and the banana bread. And once air fried takes a crispier consistency! You can even make some french toast with these or soaked these in some almond milk... EPIC!
Now you know the basics about this simple recipe, and how easy it is to make! Also great to share with your loved ones since this recipe is:
Can I freeze this recipe?
Yes! Another good thing about this recipe is that you can keep it in the freezer. You can reheat them in the microwave, the jam remains on top of the cookie! You can also bake them a few minutes (about 3 - 5 minutes at 350F) and done! Or as I said before, air fry them!
They are great to enjoy along with a cup of coffee or your favorite latte, while watching a movie or just sharing with a friend. Who can say no to a good peanut butter cookie?
