Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread


I’m obsessed with Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread for all the right reasons. My favorite part is the use of mini chocolate peanut butter cups… that was a happy accident. I was making a banana loaf ‘spur of the moment’ to save some bananas that had gone RIPE RIPE, and didn’t have enough chocolate chips to to meet the right ratios. I did have mini chocolate peanut butter cups in my pantry though, and the rest is history.

This loaf has been keeping my household company all quarantine and I can only imagine it will continue to do so through the winter months. Easy, and a crowd pleaser… what more do you want? Watch my reels on IG for step by step!
