Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Bread

Well that is a mouthful in itself, whew! But I promise you it is worth it! I fell upon this recipe and have been waiting to make it...again the bananas in our house are gone before they are super ripe. I finally got some so I made the bread!

PB Banana Chocolate Chip Bread-adapted from Meal Planning with Connie
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tbsp baking powder
3/4 cup oats(quick cook or old fashion)
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup milk(may need a little extra, I did not)
3 bananas, mashed
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 egg
2 tbsp applesauce
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350. Grease 2 bread pans or a bundt pan. Set aside.

Mix together dry ingredients including chocolate chips. Combine wet ingredients and slowly incorporate into dry mixture. Pour into pan(s) and cook for 40 mins or until a toothpick comes out clean.

**This is a delicious bread! I really enjoyed it, the peanut butter was not overwhelming nor was the banana.

  1. Hi! Stopping by from Angie's Healthy Eating blog. This post caught my eye because I have a slight obsession with peanut butter and bananas together. And of course chocolate is my first love. I really like that it is made with whole wheat flour, bananas, oats and applesauce. Healthy. I wonder how it would taste if I replaced some of the sugar with honey?

  2. I love banana bread and what a great idea to add peanut butter. Yum!
