Dense and moist banana bread loaded with peanut butter and chocolate, it’s totally crave-worthy!
Your new favorite bread. Everyone loves banana bread, but this is banana bread taken to a whole new level. I’ve made chocolate banana bread, and I’ve made peanut butter banana bread, but I’ve never made chocolate + peanut butter + banana, all in a single recipe.
Of course, a quick internet search told me that this Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Banana Bread was not an original idea, and that makes sense because it’s a GREAT idea, so someone before me would’ve had it too.
Nevertheless, I wanted to tweak the idea myself. As a peanut butter fanatic, I like the challenge of taking perfectly good recipes and trashing them up with excessive amounts of peanut butter. Would you have it any different? I’m not asking you, Aunt Sandie! Side note: how am I related to someone who hates peanut butter??
Anyway, what I love about this bread is that it’s full of flavor. It contains three mashed bananas, a heap of cocoa powder, and an even bigger heap of peanut butter. It’s also jammed with chocolate chips and peanut butter chips, in case you still didn’t have your fix. Plus more on top for drizzle.. you know, for looks.
Amazingly, it’s not too sweet. It’s still a bread. It’s sweet, but it’s not dessert. It’s not cake masquerading as bread. It’s bread. It’s moist, dense, and hearty. And this Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Banana Bread recipe comes together easily, like most quick breads! It’s perfect for breakfast or brunch, and well, you could have it for dessert too.
