Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread


I ended up browsing the recipes on the Skippy website because the Fox became interested in a picture he saw on our jar of Skippy Natural peanut butter. And then I got sidetracked looking for the recipe and bookmarked several things to try, such as this chocolate peanut butter banana bread, which my kids liked! I rearranged the order of the ingredients below to make more sense. You can garnish the cooled loaf with a drizzle of warm peanut butter and a handful of chocolate chips, if you are so inclined.

1 cup all-purpose (or white whole wheat) flour 
½ cup dark chocolate morsels 
½ cup cocoa powder, sifted 
¾ cup sugar 
1 tsp. baking soda 
¾ tsp. baking powder 
½ tsp. salt 
1 cup mashed ripened bananas 
½ cup melted lactose-free butter 
2 large eggs, lightly beaten 
1 ½ tsp. vanilla extract

Heat oven to 350 °F. Grease a loaf pan and set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, chocolate morsels, cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

In large bowl, stir together the bananas, butter, eggs, and vanilla.

Stir flour mixture into banana mixture until blended.

Transfer batter to prepared pan and bake 45 to 55 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in center comes out clean.

Cool completely on a wire rack 20 minutes.
