It's been a long long time since I baked a batch of Banana bread and overripe bananas in the fruit box were calling my name.Almost empty jar of peanut butter,a handful of chocolate chips and a overripe banana resulted in this delicious loaf.
I love the ease of the recipe,almost one bowl,if you sift the dry ingredients directly into the wet,and such a perfect way to use up those over ripe bananas which otherwise might have gone to the bin.The bread tastes delicious warm and even better as it sits.Moist and moreish with a bite of chocolate chips,ah I am in love with this one.
Peanut Butter-Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips
Recipe source - Brown Eyed Baker
All purpose flour/Maida - 1 cup
Baking soda - little less than 1/2 tsp
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Banana - 1 big,mashed
Creamy Peanut Butter - 1/4 cup
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Buttermilk - 1/4 cup
Oil - 1/8 cup
Egg - 1
Vanilla extract - 1 tsp
Chocolate chips - 1/2 cup
Preheat oven to 180C.Grease and line a loaf pan.
In a separate large bowl, whisk together the banana, peanut butter, sugar, buttermilk,
oil,egg and vanilla extract[I forgot to add the vanilla!]until smooth.
Pour the wet ingredients into the flour mixture and fold together with a rubber spatula until completely combined and there are no spots with raw flour. Gently stir in the chocolate chips.
Transfer the batter to the prepared loaf pan, smoothing the top into an even layer. Bake for 45-55 minutes or until the loaf is golden brown and a toothpick or thin knife inserted into the center comes out with just a few moist crumbs,
