What goes better together than chocolate and peanut butter? This twist of an old-fashioned favorite banana bread is a heavenly delight. Very moist and rich and great for a treat, dessert bread anytime of year. This recipe past the test of my kids, and everyone at work!
4 1/2 cups flour
2t baking powder
2t baking soda
1 bag chocolate chips
5 medium bananas, mashed
1 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
4 large eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup cocoa powder
Preheat oven to 350. Grease bottom of 2 9in loaf pans
In medium sized bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, baking powder, baking soda, salt and chocolate chips.
In large bowl, mix together peanut butter and bananas until creamy. On medium speed this takes about a minute.
Add in the egg and vanilla until just blended.
On low, slowly add the flour mixture and alternate with the milk until well blended.
Remove half of the batter from the mixing bowl. Add the cocoa to the batter left in the bowl and mix.
Place batter in the pans in alternating spoonfuls, then swirl with a knife to marble.
Bake for a good 70-80 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
This is great for muffins, mini loaves or other treats!
