Dark Choc Peanut Butter Bread


A classic breakfast would have to be bacon and eggs. Well, not in my books. I enjoy a toasted nutella/banana slices or a peanut butter/banana sandwich. Not the healthiest but certainly a good pick-me-up in the morning.

It is difficult to resist The Peanut Butter Boy’s recipe on Dark Choc Peanut Butter Bread. It’s lovely to have a few recipes in your file that requires minimum effort but impressive results. This is one of them.

It does not require a handmixer. Just a good jug and a handy fork. The end result is the house smelling wonderfully inviting and slices of bread to boot. It’s quite dense-and sort of in between a cake and a bread but certainly lovely to munch on.

I halved this recipe as the original one was for 2. However, I kept the quantity of mashed banana as it was. I love a good bread with a strong banana taste.

Dark Choc Peanut Butter Bread

Ingredients:
1 1/4 cups plain flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4tsp cinnamon
2 medium mashed bananas
1 cup skim milk
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
1 cup of dark chocolate chips

Instructions:

1. Preheat oven to 180C. Line a loaf pan.

2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. In a medium bowl, combine mashed bananas, milk, peanut butter, vanilla and egg.

3. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and stir just until combined. Mix in the chocolate chips.

4. Bake for around 40-45 minutes.
