Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Recipe

This peanut butter chocolate chip banana bread recipe is dedicated to a wonderful friend from my high school days, Jackie.

I’d like to make a note of public record that I did not use the phrase that first popped into my head, “a dear old high school friend”, because I refuse to use the words “old” and “friend” in the same sentence.  We are eternally 29, girls!

There are lots of things that I love about this banana bread recipe.  It’s a great way to use up over ripened bananas, it’s a great “grab and go” treat, it’s packed with good-for-you things like potassium and protein, and it’s a recipe that can be made in ONE BOWL!  The fewer dishes there are to wash, the happier I am.

Oh, and hello… there’s CHOCOLATE in it!  I can’t imagine anything that would taste bad with a little chocolate added to it.  Except maybe lima beans. They’re just nasty in any form.
 I love that this quick bread is made in one bowl! Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Recipe, from

I’ve baked and tasted countless banana bread recipes over the years, but I think this one tops my list.  The bread has a wonderful and beautiful crumb / consistency, and the addition of the peanut butter gives it a depth of flavor and rich taste that you don’t find with traditional banana bread.  The addition of the chocolate chips puts a kick into the presentation of this bread….and gives you one more reason to love chocolate (if you needed one.)

I hope you try this peanut butter chocolate chip banana bread recipe and love it as much as I did!

If the added chocolate and peanut butter aren’t your thing, I’ve got 9 other banana bread variations for you to try.  My personal favorite are the low carb banana bread bites.

These low carb banana bread bites are quite possibly the most addictive and delicious healthy snack you'll ever make! They're a favorite in the lunch box!

  • 3 to 4 ripe bananas smashed
  • 1/3 cup melted UNSALTED butter (if using salted butter, omit salt from ingredient list)
  • 3/4 cup cane sugar
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate chips


  • No need for a mixer for this recipe! Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  • In a large mixing bowl, using a wooden spoon or whisk, mix melted butter into the mashed bananas.
  • Add peanut butter and stir until combined.
  • Mix in the sugar, egg, and vanilla.
  • Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in.
  • Add the flour last, mixing just until combined (all lumps of flour should be incorporated), but avoid over mixing, which produces a tough, rubbery bread.
  • Pour mixture into a buttered 4x8 inch loaf pan and sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top of the loaf.
  • Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick or wooden skewer inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
  • Cool on a rack. Remove from pan and slice to serve.

  1. It’s not that good. You would be better off going to a super mrkeat and purchase one of those cake mixes (Duncan Hines, Betty Crocker) They have been around a long time and it works. You would be surprised how many cake makers use mix.
