Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Ok, so I created this banana bread and shockingly it worked out wonderfully on my very first attempt (this rarely ever happens to me when it comes to baking and trying out new recipes). I know a lot of people hate this word, so earmuffs*… but this is the most moist banana bread I have ever had. It even passed the test for my older brother who is probably the pickiest eater in the world, i’m talking does not eat a single fruit or vegetable picky. Anyway, the texture of this bread is absolutely amazing and it is not too sweet which I like! You can make them into muffins or make them into slices in a loaf pan, and it freezes very well also! I like to use my Stasher Bags to store my frozen treats in, then put them in the freezer so I do not have to worry about eating it before it goes bad. Once I am ready to have a slice I just take one out of the freezer and plop it in the microwave or the toaster (depending on what it is) and it comes out perfect (because less food waste, right?). Anyway, you really need to try this recipe- it is also super customizable, you can add chocolate chips (like I did, duh!), walnuts, extra banana slices, etc.! I hope you enjoy, and be sure to tag me in your posts or send me pictures and let me know your thoughts if you do make it, I’d love to hear what you think!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 medium ripe bananas
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons of Maple Syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil, melted
  • 1.5 Teaspoons of Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 cup of creamy all natural peanut butter (I used the Trader Joes one- it should have a runny consistency)
  • 2 cups of almond flour (I used the Trader Joes brand as well)
  • 1 Teaspoon of Baking Soda

  • A Pinch of Sea Salt
  • Toppings of Choice (I used chocolate chips)

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  2. Mash the two bananas in a bowl
  3. Add the wet ingredients (eggs, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, vanilla extract, and peanut butter) and mix well
  4. Once the wet ingredients are mixed in, add the dry ingredients to that mixture (the almond flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt).
  5. Spray and line a loaf pan (or whatever you are using) with parchment paper.
  6. Add your mixture into the pan
  7. Add your toppings (I just used chocolate Chips)
