Hi there! Love this recipe. Was planning on making it for my mom’s birthday. Do you think it would still work without the peanut butter cup? I’m wondering if you might know the SP value without….both my mom and I are on WW.
Hi Karyn, I would think without using the PB cups it would bring it down a point per slice, and yes I still think it would be a tasty loaf 🙂 Happy birthday to your mum 🙂
Hi! I love your app and am excited to try this loaf. Do you think you could use PB2 instead of light peanut butter? I don’t know if they have it in Canada but PB2 is powdered peanut butter, has A LOT less fat. I am just getting back to WW and your recpies have been SUPER helpful! Keep the yumminess coming =)
Hi Sue, Yes we have it here, I am just very picky with my PB lol, call me a peanut butter snob if you will Ha! I think you can use it in it’s wet form and all should be ok 🙂 Hope you enjoy it!

I have this one in the oven right now. This is the third loaf of yours that i’ve made and looking forward to trying this one. I love your blog and your recipes. I made the double chocolate pudding banana loaf yesterday also. (I had 4 over ripe bananas to use up). Thanks.
Hi Jen, so glad your enjoying the loaf recipes, nothing like a fresh loaf out of the oven that we can actually enjoy and stay on track 🙂
Made this yesterday for the first time. I wanted a healthier option than my high sugar banana bread recipe. That once I make it I cant leave it alone. This is a wonderful and tasty alternative to the old school banana bread. Thank you for giving us some wonderful and delicious options to stay on track!
HI Kelly, so glad you enjoyed the loaf 🙂

I’m thinking about making this but using the mini loaf pan and giving them to the girls at work for part of their Christmas gift.. I guess everything would stay the same with the points? Would it all fit in a mini loaf pan that makes 6 or do you think i should do two pans? I love your recipes by the way!!!! Thanks for everything you do!!
Hi Alyssa, So glad you’re enjoying the recipes and great idea on the mini loaves gifts 🙂 I think you should get 6 since it makes 10 slices.. I am not sure how “mini” the loaf pans are?
Could this be made as muffins? I love it as a loaf but I have a hard time figuring out my servings as I cut it as I eat it!
Hi Emily, yes you could make muffins out of the recipe 🙂 Glad you enjoy it
This is very good. I didn’t have a loaf pan so I made it into muffins. I love them warmed up with sugar free maple syrup and whipped cream. Try to only eat one a day, but kind of obsessed. Thank you for another wonderful recipe.
