We Made Room For Dessert 17 - Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

I didn't know whether I should classify this bread as a dessert, a breakfast item, or just a bread, but since I have a category dedicated to dessert, and I often eat this bread for dessert, we made room for dessert this week!  I came across this recipe about 10 years ago and fell in love with it.  Peanut butter, bananas, and chocolate?  Yum!  A quick bread, this doesn't require kneading or anything special.  Just mix and bake.  Done!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread


  • 2 1/2 cups flour (all purpose)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbs baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 3 tbs veg oil
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter (creamy or crunchy, I use creamy)
  • 3 bananas, lightly mashed
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350.
Lightly grease loaf pan.
Sift together in to a mixing bowl flour, cinnamon, and baking powder. In a separate bowl, mix together sugars, egg, milk, oil, bananas, peanut butter, and vanilla. Make a well in the flour mixture.  Pour banana mixture into the well.  Fold batter together until flour is completely incorporated into wet ingredients.  Fold in chocolate chips.  Pour in to greased loaf pan.  Bake for 50-60 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean in the center.
