One of our favorite desserts is banana bread, especially if there are chocolate chips added in. Making several loaves at a time to give away is a great memory I have from my childhood. I remember my mother would let me help her wrap the loaves with a pretty bow on top. I think this is where my love for beautiful gift wrap began. But I’m sure this is where my love for banana bread also came into play.
I recently came across peanut butter chips at the store and knew I
wanted to try to incorporate them into our bread. The combination of
bananas, chocolate chips, and peanut butter is delicious! Since my
children enjoy desserts they can hold I ended up making muffins instead
of a loaf of bread.
Peanut Butter & Chocolate Banana Muffins
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1/3 cup of melted butter
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 peanut butter chips
- 1 cup mashed bananas (about 3-4 bananas)
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 3/4 sugar
- 1 egg
In a small bowl combine flour, baking soda, salt, and baking powder. Set aside. Mix together bananas, butter, sugar, and egg in a large bowl. Slowly incorporate the flour mixture in. Once the batter is mixed together fold in the peanut butter and chocolate chips. Add batter to a greased muffin tin or use cupcake liners.
Bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes.
