Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

I’m mad at myself. I overspent at the grocery store last week; easy to do, in this economy. When I got home and started putting things away, I saw that I had bought items I already had. So, yesterday I cleaned and organized the pantry. Three jars of peanut butter – two were opened. A partial bag of chocolate chips left over from Christmas baking.  Hmmmm. Three overripe bananas had been trying to get my attention for a few days. The following recipe redeems my lack of pantry diligence.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread


1/4 cup salted butter

2 tablespoons honey

1/3 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

3 smashed bananas

2 heaping tablespoons peanut natural butter

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup rolled oats

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 cup Enjoy Life chocolate chips

What to do:

Preheat oven to 325°. Line a square baking pan with parchment and grease. In a mdium bowl, mix the first 7 ingredients. In a larger bowl, sift flour, baking soda and cinnamon.  Add rolled oats and chocolate chips. Then add in peanut butter, banana mixture to flour and oats. Don’t over stir, just incorporate it well.

Pour into the prepared pan and bake for about 45 minutes. Cool and cut and, as always,

Blessings from the Exile’s Kitchen.
