Peanut Butter Banana Bread
Peanut Butter Banana Bread made with ripe bananas, peanut butter, and chocolate chips! A delicious variation on the classic banana bread recipe.
Servings: 12 slices
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/3 cup butter softened to room temperature
- 1/3 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt regular or Greek yogurt or you can use plain yogurt or sour cream
- 1/2 cup mashed ripe banana about 1 large banana or 1-2 smaller ones
- 1/2-1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips can use regular or miniature ones
Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 9X5 bread pan with non-stick cooking spray. I like to use a baking spray like this one.
In one bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the butter, peanut butter, brown sugar and sugar with an electric mixer. Beat for at least 2-3 minutes. Mix in the egg, vanilla, yogurt and mashed banana and continue to beat for another 1-2 minutes.
Add the dry ingredients and chocolate chips (reserving a few to sprinkle on top). Mix just until combined - don't overmix!
Pour the batter into the prepared bread pan and sprinkle with the reserved chocolate chips.
Bake at 350° for about 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool in pan for at least 15-20 minutes before removing from pan and placing on a wire rack to cool completely.
