Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Honest and truly if ever a banana bread were sinful than this is the one!

Chocolate, peanut butter and banana love each other. If that isn’t sin then I don’t know what is.

Every out-of-this-world-delicious bite makes you wish for another until you find yourself with the very last piece. At which point, complete and utter sadness overcomes every fiber of your being.

The only thing to do is bake more, under the guise of sharing your delectable discovery with every, single friend you have. Because it’s just that good.

And you’re that friend.

    Great recipe and turned out perfect. Followed all ingredients and instructions to the letter. It took about an hour exactly in my oven. This recipe is a keeper!

    I used this recipe for a work do and it went down very well. Some suggestions for variation would be to
    a) use chocolate buttons (gives a bigger piece of chocolate)
    b) I couldn’t really taste the peanut butter so next time I’m going to try swirling it the into the batter just before cooking, rather than mixing it in fully.

    This is great! Thanks for the recipe! I used a technique I learned from “The Joy of Cooking” for their banana bread that simplified it a little. Mix the dry ingredients, and set aside. After mixing the butter and sugars thoroughly, add the dry ingredients in and mix till sandy. In another bowl, mix all remaining wet ingredients (no chips yet!), then fold them in to the sandy mix. Finally, gently mix in chips, bake as you directed. I used all your ingredients and measurements. Thanks!!

    I made this today and it was delicious. However, the middle was a big gooey mess. Based on the top and poking it, it appeared to be done. Not sure how to correct this problem. I didn’t want to burn the top and outer edges. Any suggestions?

      Hi Wendy! I’m sorry that happened! It definitely wasn’t cooked enough! For next time you can either cover the top with aluminum foil once it gets as brown as you like or you can just leave out a little of the batter – discard it or make muffins out of it. Hope this helps! Thanks for making it! Happy 4th of July!

    Could we add coco powder and some actual chopped peanuts too? If so, how much would you recommend?

    • says

      Hi Lucas! You can but it doesn’t need it – there’s a lot going on already! Maybe 1/3 cup cocoa and 1/2 cup chopped peanuts? Let me know how it turns out!

    This recipe has become one of my favorites! I use coconut oil instead of butter and it just makes it even better! Thank you for this recipe!

    I’m so not that friend…I might make a bunch and eat them all myself though…

    Looks fantastic though, and I’ll be giving it a try tomorrow! (all my bread pan are currently in use, otherwise it would be right now!)
