There is no better combination than peanut butter and chocolate. I am pretty sure no one would disagree with me. If you do ... YOU ARE INSANE!
Of course once again I have ripe bananas in my kitchen so of course I have to make something with bananas. Of course my pup in laying in the sun in my kitchen waiting to be spoiled so I have to bring out the peanut butter. So ... what does a girl do? She makes peanut butter banana chocolate chip bread!
Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Bread
Adapted from Lauren's Latest
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
2 very ripe bananas, mashed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 325F.
2. Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, sugar, and brown sugar.
3. Create a well in the center and pour in vegetable oil, peanut butter, egg, bananas, and vanilla extract. Mix until just combined.
4. Stir in chocolate chips.
5. Grease a mini loaf pan.
6. Divide evenly between loaf pans and bake for about 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted.
7. Cool 5 minutes in pan and remove to cooling racks. Serve warm or at room temperature.
These were delish! And since I used a ice cream scooper to scoop the batter into the pans my mini loafs were easy to break in half to share or double fist. I need to make these more often. Maybe next time I will sprinkle some oats on top to make it look healthier. Muahahaha!
Keep baking and playing with your fur babies!
