Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

It was another one of those “I bought too many bananas” situation – and ended up with mushy bananas no one wanted to eat. This bread is a combo of the mushy bananas, applesauce, and peanut butter with some mini chocolate chips swirled in the batter. It yields two loaves – one for you and one to share!

  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350º. Spray 2 – 8″ x 4″ loaf pans with baking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
