Peanut Butter Chip Banana Bread



Peanut butter and banana are an interesting combination. They compliment one another nicely, yet I haven't seen too many recipes with these two ingredients as the main components. This got me thinking about what else I could make with peanut butter and banana.

A couple of ideas:

A smoothie made with frozen bananas, smooth peanut butter, milk, vanilla and maybe even some chocolate

Banana cupcakes with peanut butter frosting

Banana pancakes with peanut butter chips

Just a few thoughts, but for now I'll stick with the peanut butter chip banana bread.

Peanut Butter Chip Banana Bread
3/4 cup Whole Wheat Flour
3/4 cup All-Purpose Flour
3 Large Bananas, Mashed (About 1 1/3 cups)
1/2 cup Sour Cream
3 tablespoons Unsalted Butter, Melted
2 Eggs
1 cup Dark Brown Sugar
3/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1/3 cup Peanut Butter Chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray bread pan with cooking spray. In the bowl of an electric mixer beat together the eggs and sugar. Stir in the sour cream, mashed bananas, butter, and vanilla, just till combined. In a medium sized bowl whisk together all of the dry ingredients, except for the peanut butter chips. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir to combine, then stir in the peanut butter chips, and stir again, just until mixed. Pour batter into prepared bread pan and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean.

Bread can be covered and stored at room temperature for a few days.
