This Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread is a spin on my always popular Banana Bread with the addition of peanut butter, peanut butter chips and chocolate chips!
The original Banana Bread recipe came from my Nana and has been made by our family for years! I have had tons of fun experimenting with it and making it into different varieties.
Banana Bread tips:
- Freeze your bananas when they are past the ripeness that you will eat them. Then, when you are ready to bake with them just microwave them a few seconds on each side to get them out of the peel or let them thaw on the counter. I always have at least a couple bananas in my freezer to use for baking. You can either leave them in the peel or remove the peel and put them in a plastic bag. Using bananas that have been frozen gives the banana bread a different flavor. If you don’t have them frozen, no worries! For more information check out How to Store Ripe Bananas!
- Alternate the dry ingredients and mashed bananas when mixing. This will keep you from over mixing the batter.
- Add as many chocolate and peanut butter chips as you want, the recipe just gives a suggested amount! Also, nuts would make another great addition.
- Let bread cool completely and store wrapped in tin foil at room temperature.
- Bread can also be frozen and defrosted!
