Peanut Butter Oreo Banana Bread

Peanut Butter and Oreos are a natural pairing! They’re the perfect complimentary flavors to banana, which makes this Peanut Butter Oreo Banana Bread a trifecta of awesome flavors!

I’ve completely obsessed with this Peanut Butter Banana bread recipe ever since Dorothy posted it here. It’s my absolute favorite! I never make plain old banana bread anymore. Not only does the peanut butter really add to the flavor (obviously), I think it makes the bread even softer and keeps its moist longer!

Now that I have a child in preschool, I’ve become more aware of food allergies. I’m not saying that I really do much to accommodate them here (sorry!), but I do like to provide alternatives when I can! So if you or someone you bake for has a nut allergy, no worries! My sweet friend, Carrian, has baked up the perfect nut-free alter-ego to this bread: Oreo Biscoff Banana Bread! And, really? Who needs a nut allergy to want to bake that up?? Not me! I can’t wait to whip up some of her Oreo Biscoff Spread!

Although, I must say… I’m really glad that I don’t have a nut allergy. Because I fully intend to enjoy both versions of Oreo Banana Bread! Piggy much? ;)

Peanut Butter Oreo Banana Bread


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 2 overripe bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 15 Oreos, crushed (I use a food processor)
  • 6 Oreos, crumbled for topping (I just did this with my hands)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Grease two standard sized loaf pans or 4 mini loaf pans.
  2. Mix oil, peanut butter, and sugar in a large bowl with a stand mixer whisk.
  3. Add the bananas, eggs, sour milk, and baking soda to the peanut butter mixture. Beat until combined.
  4. Slowly mix in flour, beating just until combined, don't over mix!
  5. Mix in the crushed Oreos. Divide the batter evenly between the two pans (even if it looks like the batter could all fit comfortably in one pan, don't! I've found that I can't get it to bake all the way through without burning the outside if I only use one pan).
  6. Crumble the 6 Oreos over the batter (3 Oreos for each).
  7. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out mostly clean (it IS a very moist bread, so you may still have a little bit of bread that sticks to the toothpick, that's ok).
  8. Let cool for at least 10 minutes in the pans before trying to slice.

    Your version and Carrian’s version have me DROOLING over here. Like, it is kind of embarrassing. I am now staring at my bananas on the counter willing them with my eyes to ripen faster so I can make this bread!

    This sounds amazing. I’ve only made plain banana bread, no experimenting. I’ll have to change that by adding these flavors.

    Oh my god. Seriously. *Drooling*

    Holy moly!! That is some amazing looking banana bread you have there! I really really need to make this. I am loving it!

    I bet this is kind of like when you dip an Oreo into peanut butter and eat it (not that I’ve ever done that…), but even better !

    This is probably one of the best banana breads I have ever seen! I know what I’ll be doing with my overripe bananas this week!

    This looks totally amazing Ashton – my husband would LOVE for me to make this for him :)

    What?!?!?!? This is total divine inspiration in Banana Bread! I am off to check out that Biscoff oreo spread!

    The crunchy chocolate oreo on top of the peanut butter and banana sounds like heaven! To think that for years I thought oreos were just cookies to be dipped in milk! What limited thinking. Thank goodness for my new found baking knowledge. :)

    Two of my favorites in one glorious banana bread!!! I’m thinking no one in my house needs to know about this bread when I make it. Now who’s a piggy ;-) Love it!!!

    This looks absolutely amazing! I never put oreos together with banana, let alone peanut butter. The combination has me crazy interested. I made a really good banana bread the other day and it made me want to make a loaf every week. Definitely going to give this a shot when I have oreos laying around.

    I just happen to have some ripe bananas right now!! :)

    I’ve saved Carrian’s recipe to make when I have overripe bananas and now, after seeing yours I have no otehr choice than to make both versions.
    Would love if you link this recipe to this month #bakeyourownbread round-up (scroll to the bttom of the page)

    Made this yesterday ! Was really good but i would of added more bananas and would not use the food processor for the oreos in the batter so it can taste more !!! But if not it was very good :-) thank you for this great post

  18. Mammoth | Baking posted on November 12, 2014 at 3:32 pm (#)

    Looks great, smells amazing, tastes fantastic.
    the only thing i would change is
    1: more oreo :D

      I’ll never disagree with that!
