  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup 1 stick butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup of your favorite peanut butter
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2-3 medium ripe bananas, mashed with a fork (about 1 cup - 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup peanut 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.
