Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Libbie has been asking for banana bread lately, and since I had a bunch of very brown ones on the counter, my choice for Secret Recipe Club this month was a no-brainer. Well, sorta.

My assigned blog was It’s Yummi, written by Becca, a trained chef who shares her classic, nutritious dishes with some treats thrown in. I eyed the Bacon Cheddar Cornbread (sadly I had no creamed corn – but how genius is that to keep it moist?), and I’ve actually bought the ingredients to make her Morning Glory Muffins, but in the end I settled on Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread.

I adore peanut butter and bananas together, and I think chocolate balances them out well. And apparently so does Joshua. I almost didn’t get to take pictures of this bread, because while it was cooling, he pulled a stool up to the oven and my husband found him scraping off chocolate chips with his palm and saying, “Mmmm! MMMM!”

But we mostly rescued the bread, Joshua got a bath, and all was right with the world. Two-year-olds.

I loved Becca‘s banana bread recipe. It’s super moist, the peanut butter added a nice touch, and it baked up high and beautiful. It’s one I will definitely go back to. Or maybe try her banana bread with chocolate chips and chocolate ganache. Because HOLY MOLY. YUM.
