Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Bread

Happy Monday! Did you all have a good weekend? How goes those New Years Resolutions?

I know you all are starting a new week and a new year with lots of vigor, strength, motivation and all around positive attitudes about your healthy eating & weight loss aspirations. Snaps for you for following through and starting those goals!

Did I make any resolutions this year? Yes, but none have to do with cutting sugar and/or fat out of my diet…hence this post. And it’s a doozie!

Do you read the title?

Peanut butter banana chocolate chip bread.

Yes, that is correct. It’s an extravagant breakfast/snack/ dessert that will fill your sweet tooth in a jiffy. Basically it’s banana bread on steroids…in a cute little package, no less! I like my desserts mini. That way I don’t have to feel guilty for eating 14. {See here, here, here and here.}

This recipe is pretty ridiculously simple. Here’s how it goes down:

Measure out all your dry ingredients into a bowl–bet you have ALL this stuff laying around in your pantry right now!

Dry ingredients unmixed

Use a whisk and stir it all together–you just want to break apart that brown sugar and mix in the leavenings.

Dry ingredients mixed

Now grab some ripe bananas…like these little guys–

Bananas

and mash away! {A great job for little hands!}

Mashed bananas

Pour that mashed banana into the well along with the remaining wet ingredients–again, you should have all these ingredients on hand.

Adding in wet ingredients

Once you mix this all together and add in the chocolate chips, your batter is finito!

Spoon this right into your mouth…

And by mouth I mean into the pan.

Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Bread in mini loaf pans

Bake these babies at 325 for 20 or so minutes until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted…you know the drill.

Cool these off a few minutes before attempting to remove from the pan. Then you can dress them up and prettify them with some ribbon, twine, whatever.

For those of you healthy eaters–I’m sorry.

For everyone else–you’re welcome.

Enjoy! πŸ™‚

    Oooh, I can’t believe my husband talked me out of the mini-loaf pans on my Boxing Day kitchen stock-up! I just KNEW something like this would come along begging to me made!

    The title alone hits like 3 of my favorite food groups: Peanut butter, Bananas, and Chocolate!

    …and yes, those are totally food groups!

  7. Sara {Home is Where the Cookies Are}

    Ha! This post made me chuckle. I SO feel like I need to get back to eating healthy, but I keep getting pulled back into sweet territory! These are so cute all wrapped up too! How about salad for lunch and dinner, and these little babies for breakfast and snack? It’s all about balance. . . .

  8. Michelle

    Lauren,
    These look Delicious! Can’t wait to try them. I’m always looking for new ways to use up the over-ripe bananas.

    1. Michelle

  9. Rachel @ The Avid Appetite

    Aw these are such sweet little loaves! I love the pb & banana combo…doesn’t get much better than that!

  10. honeywhatscooking

    I was shocked when I saw this was mini, the first picture looks huge. Girl, this isnt’ too bad in fat… oil, peanut butter, banana isn’t bad, at least there is no butter, and little bit sugar. πŸ™‚ Happy New Year!

  11. Steve @ theblackpeppercorn

    Happy New Year! These are so awesome Lauren. I love mini loaves and have been wanting to get myself a tray sometime. I love every ingredient and you are right that almost every ingredient is in my pantry right now. All but the bananas. I will have to get some to try it.

  12. yeni

    These don’t appear very bad at all, especially since there’s no butter in the mix. I think these will be a delightful treat. Nice recipe!

  13. Katie

    I made this recipe and used a large loaf pan rather than the small mini loaves (only because I don’t own a mini loaf pan.. yet!). It turned out great and was delicious! The only adjustment I had to make was allowing it to bake for approx. 30-40 minutes; I kept an eye on the loaf and took it out when the top was golden brown and a toothpick was clean.

  14. Jessi

    These are great! I don’t have a mini load pan, so I made them as muffins and they turned out wonderful. Very moist! MMM πŸ™‚ Thanks!

    Delicious! Have had my eye on this recipe for ages and today was the day. Delightful. Thank you! Did mini loaves and they were perfect.

  17. Vanjohaha

    Love this! I am too lazy to make mini loaves so I doubled the recipe and made a bread (more like cake) instead. I did 1/4c oil + 1/4c butter and only used 3 bananas and it turned out great. Tested by my husband, 2 year old son and 2 friends and got big thumbs up from all.
    Found your website on a google search when I was looking for a healthy banana chocolate chip bread and I absolutely adore your photo presentation and love the premise of your website (everday ingredients, extraordinary food). I’m going to surf your other stuff tonight!

  18. Kristen Bradshaw

    Great recipe! Just made these and they taste delicious, although I used mini muffin trays. I also made a second batch substituting the peanut butter for walnuts, and those came out equally as delicious. Thanks for the post!

  19. Laurie

    I just made these again and they turned out even better. They are good enough to be a birthday cake, just addictively delicious. Sublime. (I blogged them too.) I used whole wheat white flour, added extra cinnamon, and split the oil into a half oil/half yogurt mix, which made the texture even fluffier than the last time I made them. I LOVE THESE. Thanks for the fantastic recipe.
