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! 🙂

    Hi Lauren. This is my first time entering your food blog and I’m so addicted to your recipes. I did try this recipe today, but I used the cupcake baking tray instead. Everyone just loved it so much. Thanks a lot xoxoxo

    Yummmm! I had lots of overripe bananas and found this recipe. Made mini muffins and they were a perfect blend of moist and fluffy. Will definitely make these again!

    This recipe has been my go-to for the past several years. It’s super yummy, moist, and oh, so easy!

    My husband and I recently moved and I can’t for the life of me find my mini loaf pans. I was surprised that the topic hasn’t come up regarding using this recipe in a regular sized loaf pan so I did some experimenting. Here are my findings:

    I used a non-stick metal regular sized loaf pan. I actually doubled this recipe and made 2 regular sized loafs (they were a little bit shorter than I wanted so maybe next time I’ll triple the recipe and they would come out bigger. You’d probably have to adjust the baking time accordingly). I baked the half-full loaf for 45-50 mins at 350°F on the bottom rack. The sides browned a bit more than I wanted but my baking pan is brand spanking new so maybe it has something to do with that. The top was beautiful and golden brown.

    Hope this helps! If you experiment, please let us know how it goes!

    So I am the one that asks: I have some mini pans never used because I don’t know how much to fill them. How far up the sides of the pan do you fill these pans? I know it sounds dumb. I have looked all around and asked Pinterest. Everyone talks about making the batter, the amount of time to bake, at what temp. Most don’t tell whether to grease the pan, how much to fill the smaller pans, or method of cooling. AND nobody tells how much their recipes make! How many cookies? How much soup? What do you call a large skillet, sauce pan, or bowl. Some of these left out tidbits keep me from making a recipe. We look to you bloggers for advise about your recipes. Not all your readers are fellow bloggers. Thank You.
