Peanut Butter Quick Bread

I came across a non-vegan version of this recipe in a vintage cookbook and decided I needed it in my life. And being that it’s a yeast-free bread, it was right up my alley. (My breadmaking skills leave much to be desired. I have this unfounded fear of working with yeast. Yes, I know…I need …
