Fool-Proof Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Banana Bread. Ahhhhh. I have yet to meet someone who doesn’t like banana bread. I’m sure they exist. I know they’re out there somewhere, probably sad and hungry. And you know what I’d say to that weirdo person? 

“But I added Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chips…”

Me, blowing said person’s mind

And thus, they would try it, and fireworks would ignite in their eyes as they bit into the gooey morsels, more similar to that of a marvelous cookie than boring ole banana bread, and the thought of dislike would fall far out of mind as they devour the whole piece.

That’s what I would like to imagine happens anyway…

Ahem, without further ado, I present…

Fool-Proof Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread (You can make it without the peanut butter and chocolate chips if you want to be, like, healthy or whatever).

We can become total besties, and feel like we’re having a baking party together, by watching the video below. Or scroll on, not be besties, have no fun, and get the recipe a little further down.

Fool-Proof Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Yields 2 loves of banana bread

  • 1 ¼ cups sugar
  • ½ cup (one stick) butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • ½ cup butter milk 
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 ½ cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 oz. milk chocolate chips
  • 4 oz. peanut butter chips

In a large bowl, begin by creaming together sugar and butter, with a mixer on the lowest setting for about 1 minute. Next add eggs, bananas, buttermilk and vanilla. Return to mixer, again on lowest setting, for about 1 minute until a runny, pale yellow mixture forms. While still mixing, slowly add in flour, baking soda and salt, and continue mixing until a nice, moist batter forms. Mix in both chocolate and peanut butter chips until they are evenly dispersed through the batter. Pour into 2 greased loaf pans (8.5 x 4.5 inch) and bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes until a perfectly golden loaf has formed.

Voila! I hope this whole new spin on a classic recipe brings you lots of warm, ooey, gooey happiness, and maybe even a friend or two wanting to get their hands on your extra loaf. No where in the recipe does it say you have to share…
