Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

My Banana Bread is probably one of my most requested recipes. I love making it because it is such an easy recipe that turns out fabulous. Today, I got extra creative with my recipe and the result was a bread that taste like a combination of a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup and Banana Bread. Sounds Fabulous, Right??? You will not be disappointed. Your kiddos will love it. Slather some peanut butter on top and you have a great protein-packed breakfast or after-school snack. Big Kiddos will love it too :)! Enjoy!

You are Prayed for and Loved!

Psalm 84:5-7

"What joy for those whose strength comes from the Lord, who have set their minds on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. When they walk through the Valley of Weeping, it will become a place of refreshing springs. The autumn rains will clothe it with blessings. They will continue to grow stronger, and each of them will appear before God."

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread


3 tablespoons butter, melted

1/3 cup peanut butter

2/3 cup granulated sugar

2 large eggs

1 cup (2 medium) mashed ripe bananas

3 tablespoons milk

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup chocolate chips

1/2 cup chopped roasted peanuts, chopped (optional)


Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan. Stir together the melted butter, peanut butter, sugar, and eggs. Blend in the bananas and milk. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to the banana mixture; stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened. Fold in the chocolate chips and chopped nuts. Spoon the batter into the pan. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from the pan and cool on a wire rack. This bread tastes delicious served warm slathered with peanut butter, but it also tastes great cooled.
