Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread-moist chocolate banana bread with a peanut butter swirl and peanut butter chips on top! This quick and easy banana bread recipe is a family favorite!

Oops, I did it again! I made more chocolate banana bread. I am obsessed with my chocolate banana bread recipe, it is seriously the BEST! I buy extra bananas at the store just so I can make banana bread. I watch the bananas, waiting for them to turn brown. I think they actually take longer to turn brown if you watch them, kind of like watching a pot of water to boil. They seem to take forever to turn brown when you really want to make banana bread.

This time, I used my brown bananas to make chocolate banana bread, but I mixed things up. I added peanut butter to the mix and made Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread. Yep, this chocolate banana bread recipe has a peanut butter swirl inside and peanut butter chips on top! It is a chocolate peanut butter lover’s DREAM banana bread!


I was super excited to invite peanut butter to the chocolate banana bread party because chocolate and peanut butter are a match made in heaven. I knew the peanut butter addition would be good, but I didn’t know it would be eat the whole loaf good. You think I am joking, but I really went to town on this loaf of banana bread.  The boys helped me a little, but I kept eating slice after slice until it was gone.

The chocolate banana bread alone is absolute perfection, but when you add in a swirl of creamy peanut butter and peanut butter chips on top, talk about trouble. I couldn’t stop myself!

Now, this is technically banana bread, but I will warn you, it tastes more like chocolate cake. I promise, that is a VERY good thing. And since it is bread, you can eat it for breakfast and not feel guilty. It has peanut butter so you will get a nice boost of protein. Oh, and the bananas, so there is fruit too, totally acceptable breakfast food:)

I like to go the extra mile and slather peanut butter on my slice. Mmmmm, so good!

So, I’ve made Chocolate Banana Bread, Gluten-Free Vegan Chocolate Banana Bread, and now Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread. I think I need an intervention. The next time I bake a loaf of chocolate banana bread, please come help me eat it! And which recipe is my favorite? I know you are going to ask…whatever banana bread I am eating at the time. They are ALL so so good!

I am going to watch my bananas now. I need them to turn brown so I can bake another loaf. And make sure you check out How to Make the Best Banana Bread, if you want a classic recipe! It’s a winner!
