Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Does anyone else feel like Peanut Butter Banana Bread is a giant mouthful? Luckily it tastes as good as it is long, and it was a huge hit with my boyfriend and I. A friend of mine made muffins with a similar recipe once, and though they were a little dry, they were still really good. The only thing I added to this recipe was crunchy peanut butter (I ran out of smooth) and some chocolate chips.

Tell me that doesn't look delicious! I made two of them, and ate them both almost entirely by myself. 

The recipe comes from here.

Yields 9 x 5-inch loaf
1/2 cup (1 stick or 113 grams) butter
3/4 cup (150 grams) brown sugar, packed
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 large ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup (130 grams) peanut butter
1 cup (125 grams) all-purpose flour
1 cup (120 grams) whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup (60 ml) milk
* 1 1/2 cups of Chocolate chips - Optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Grease a loaf pan.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well between additions. Beat in the vanilla extract, mashed bananas, and peanut butter until fully incorporated. Mix in the flours, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the milk.
Transfer batter to the prepared loaf pan and bake for 55 to 65 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool loaf in pan for 10 minutes before removing and transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.
