Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Nut Bread

One of the best parts about cooler weather is what happens in the kitchen — from warm hearty soups to indulgent baked goods; my senses seem to heighten with the season change. And with all that happens, I never fail to treat myself every once in a while (or more frequently, do not judge). It’s been quite the busy year so far. Summer zipped on by and fall already seems like it’s close to a wrap… I mean, it’s already mid October for crying out loud!

A couple weekends ago, I had a ton of SUPER ripe bananas on my counter just waiting to be used. Sometimes I’ll cut and freeze ’em for smoothies, but I opted for the opposite end of the spectrum: baking. Baking is usually all about preciseness and measurements — quite frankly, that’s far from what I generally do when in the kitchen. I’d say I’m more of a ‘wing it’ and taste test kind of gal. With that said, a little it of this and a little bit of that turned into a whole lot of delectableness (is that a word?) yet WITHOUT the guilt.

Super moist and just the perfect amount of sweetness, this works well for breakfast or dessert. And, the loaf was gone within a day! I did have to do some taste testing afterwards…which consisted of a slice (or five). Might be something that I bring to the next holiday festive, but in cupcake form? Maybe whip up a light frosting to go with it? What do you think? To be determined.

Anyway, this Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Nut Bread was a smashing hit and since everyone has been so eager to get their hands on the recipe, here it is for all to enjoy πŸ™‚
