Peanut Butter and Banana Bread

Kim1 Comment


This is baking in my oven right now.  I am a sucker for anything peanut butter & if you throw in chocolate well I am pretty defenseless.  A dear friend sent a loaf of this home with me before surgery.  It was delicious & so we are making some to have at a carry in Super Bowl Party(if it makes it that long).  Enjoy!

Peanut Butter and Banana Bread

2 1/2 cups flour

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1 T baking powder

3/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp cinnamon

2 ripe large bananas, mashed (1 cup)

1 cup milk

1/4 cup peanut butter

3 T cooking oil

1 tsp vanilla

1 egg slightly beaten

6-oz pkg milk chocolate pieces (1 cup)

Recipe for Peanut Butter frosting

In a large mixing bowl stir together flour, sugars, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.  In another bowl combine mashed bananas, milk, peanut butter, oil, vanilla and egg.  Add to flour mixture, stirring just until combined.  Stir in chocolate pieces.  Pour in to two greased loaf pan.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 50-55 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.  Cool in pans for 10 minutes.  Remove from pans; cool for thoroughly on a wire rack.  Wrap and store overnight before serving.  To serve, frost with Peanut Butter Frosting.  Top with Chocolate Chips.

Peanut Butter Frosting

In a small saucepan melt 3 T peanut butter and 2 T Butter.  Remove from heat; stir in 1 cup powdered sugar and 1 tsp vanilla.  Stir in 1 T milk.  Add more milk, if necessary, until it is of spreading consistency.

I will post a picture when it is frosted—it disappeared to fast earlier to snap a photo!
