Peanut Butter Coconut Quick Bread With Mint Glaze I haven’t posted a peanut butter recipe in a while. That’s shocking considering how much I love this butter! But thanks to folks at Peanut Butter Coconut Quick Bread I think peanut butter and coconut go well together and so I combined some sweetened coconut flakes with peanut butter and came up with this quick bread topped with peppermint glaze and crushed candy canes. I used Peanut Butter Company’s Smooth Operator for this recipe and let me tell you this stuff is addictive. It’s so smooth, so creamy and a peanut butter addict like me could eat it all straight out of a jar (well I did that anyway!). This bread comes together very quickly, is lightly sweetened and would be perfect for breakfast during the holidays!
