Your whole family will love this nutty Peanut Butter Banana Bread made with bananas, peanut butter and chocolate. Makes a great snack or breakfast or even dessert (ice cream topped peanut butter banana bread anyone?).
This peanut butter banana bread recipe is loosely based off of a recipe I shared a couple of years ago for Sour Cream Banana Muffins. It got a nice creamy and fluffy texture, and the chocolate and peanut butter chips add another level of texture and flavor. It really is amazing! Plus it’s a quick bread which means no waiting for dough to rise. You have delicious warm, sweet bread in just over an hour!
I enjoyed a slice with peanut butter spread on it with my coffee each morning for a week. You could spread it with Nutella, or even just enjoy it by itself.

2-3mediumripe bananas, mashed with a fork (about 1 cup - 1 ½ cups)
1/4cuppeanut butter chips
Extra peanut butter and chocolate chips for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 8-9 inch loaf pan with parchment or spray with cooking spray.
In a medium sized bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment (or by hand), beat on the butter and peanut butter until creamy and combined. Add sugar and beat on high until light and fluffy; 1-2 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla and beat on medium speed until well combined.
Gently stir in flour mixture, just until combined. Gently fold in bananas, just until combined, then chocolate and peanut butter chips.
Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan. Top with additional chips, if desired.
Bake in the preheated 350 degree oven for 50-60, or until sides pull away from the pan and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Cool completely in the loaf pan on a wire rack. Slice and serve. Store in a sealable plastic bag for 4-5 days.
