This chocolate & peanut butter banana bread was part of my Mother’s Day surprise my son had for me this year. He prepared a poster-like presentation using a program they use at school and he knows I like cooking so he did it about a recipe: Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread. So sweet!!
He basically got a recipe from internet and made a nice poster around it. The only author reference I could find was @feelingpeckish and Tastemade. I tried to look for the original post to link here, but was unable to find it. Sorry @feelingpeckish, if I ever find your original post I promise I will link it here!!!
I adapted the recipe slightly, I basically reduced the sugar in half, like I pretty much always do with sweet recipes, and I did not add crushed peanuts because I didn’t have any handy. It came out delicious, moist and well balanced: not too much chocolate, not too much peanut butter. Really nice!!
A chocolate peanut butter bread that will keep making over and over again. It pairs perfectly with a nice mid-afternoon cup of tea (or coffee), or it is a good on the go snack for the kids. Either way, you’ll be coming back for more!
Chocolate. Peanut butter. Banana. Bread. All combined in one, can’t get any better than that. A moist well balanced bread that won’t last long!
2 ¼ cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
3 large ripe bananas, mashed
5 tbsp smooth peanut butter
2 eggs, whisked ½ cup vegetable oil
½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup chopped dark chocolate (70% cacao) or chocolate chips
½ cup chopped unsalted peanuts
Preheat oven to 350°F. grease and flour a loaf pan. Whisk together the flour, baking powder and baking soda in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl put the mashed bananas, peanut butter, egg, oil, sugar and vanilla and stir with a fork. Add the banana mixture to the flour mixture and mix together until well combined. Fold in the chopped chocolate and peanuts.
Pour the batter in the loaf pan and bake for 50-60 min or until a skewer comes out clean.
Cool in the pan for 10 min and then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
