It’s National Peanut Butter Day! Let’s celebrate with this delicious Peanut Butter Banana Bread.

I have to admit… I am undecided on how I feel about this recipe. Peanut butter and banana sandwiches are one of my favorite last minute lunches but it is almost different when you transform it into a sweet bread. Our home is divided on the vote. My son and I loved it. My husband? Not so much. I think what sent it over the top for me was the addition of mini chocolate chips. Nothing completes a recipe like some chocolate!

The secret to this recipe, like most banana breads, is to be gentile with the batter. I always hand mix my banana breads to avoid a dry tough outcome. If you do use a mixer make sure to keep it on low speed and turn it off as soon as you see all of the ingredients combined together.

You can’t go wrong with this insanely delicious combination. If you want to get crazy you could add in some walnuts or pecans OR replace the chocolate chips with one of those two. Try it toasted with a small smear of maple spread. So amazing and worth keeping a loaf or two in the freezer.
