A friend of ours delivered the most delicious banana bread to us the other day. Perfectly moist and a flavor I couldn't quite make out, until I noticed she also included the recipe. Bisquick!! No flour, just bisquick. And I swear, it turned the loaf into a fluffy banana pancake bread. Pretend that makes sense. I couldn't wait to try it myself. I only adapted her recipe slightly to include peanut butter and peanut butter chips, because why not. Also, I only had 2 eggs so I threw some buttermilk in because I had it.
Perfect, perfect, perfect. Thank you Linda!!!
(Makes 1 large loaf or 2 small loaves)

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla

Peanut butter chips (optional)
Preheat oven to 325. In a large bowl, mash bananas with fork. Add eggs, vegetable oil, buttermilk, peanut butter and vanilla and stir to combine. Stir in Bisquick, sugar and peanut butter chips if using - careful not to over mix. Place in greased bread pan(s) and bake - 1 hour for large loaf and 25 minutes for small loaves.
