This truly is one of my favorite Banana Bread Recipes. It is more flavorful with the addition of peanut butter and chocolate chips. The sprinkling of chunky sugar on top adds a little crisp to the top crust. Soooo Good!

"I just made this about 2 hours ago and it is fantastic!! My little ones helped make it & loved the taste testing part! It was very moist & had a good balance of peanut butter to banana flavor. I made it exactly as directed except I used only 1 1/2 c. flour & then 1/2 c. baby cereal because I have a ton left over & need to get rid of it!! Fantastic recipe, we will be making this quite often, Thanks!!"


2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 1/2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
2-3 Medium Ripe Bananas; Mashed
1/2 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
3 Tablespoons Un-Salted Butter
1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar
1/2 Cup Light Brown Sugar; Firmly Packed
2 Large Eggs
1 1/2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
1/2 Cup Milk
1/2 - 3/4 Cup Semi-Sweet or Dark Chocolate Chips
1-2 Teaspoons Chunky or Turbinado Sugar; Optional

Original recipe makes 10 Servings



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9-inch bread loaf pan with cooking spray or butter.

In a medium sized mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together mashed bananas, peanut butter, ONLY 2 tablespoons butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar until creamy, aproximately 2 minutes; Next, beat in the eggs and vanilla extract until combined. Reduce mixer speed to low and add in the milk. Mix for about 20 seconds. Add flour mixture and mix until just combined; stir in chocolate chips.

Pour batter into prepared loaf pan; bake for 50 minutes or until done. (Check by inserting a toothpick in the center. Bread is done when toothpick removes clean.) When done, remove pan from oven. Melt additional tablespoon butter and brush evenly over the top of bread. Sprinkle chunky / turbinado sugar over butter coated top. Return to oven and bake an additional 5 minutes or until golden brown.

Cool for 20 minutes before running a knife around outside edges. Remove Bread and transfer to a wire rack to cool an additional 30 minutes before slicing. Enjoy.


Really RIPE Bananas work best for this recipe. For the chocolate chips, I vary on the amount depending on my mood. More chips takes away from the peanut butter and banana flavors in my opinion. I usually make this recipe with 1/2 of the mini morsels or tiny chocolate chips. Experiment... Make it your own, and enjoy.

I read the other comments and followed the tips about the cinnamon, more peanut butter, and using butterscotch chips as well as chocolate. I doubled the recipe to fit in a cake pan and I LOVE THIS. Officially in my favorites! Thank you!

Very good, I did have to bake it for an hour. I used half milk chocolate, half dark chocolate; a nice combination. Next time I will add more peanut butter. I will be adding this as a recipe to keep.

I just made this bread and had a piece as soon as it cooled a little. So good and moist! Only change I made was that I added a teaspoon of cinnamon. Definitely will be making this often!
