Ingredients  

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 very ripe, darkly speckled bananas, mashed well (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter chips

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  • Line a 9-inch loaf pan with parchment then grease the parchment paper with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. Set it aside.
  • In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the mashed bananas, buttermilk, eggs, melted butter, vanilla extract and peanut butter until well combined.
  • Lightly fold the banana mixture into the dry ingredients with a rubber spatula just until combined. (The batter will be thick and chunky.) Stir in the peanut butter chips then scrape the batter into the prepared loaf pan.
  • Bake the bread for 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Allow the loaf to cool in the pan for 5 minutes then transfer it to a cooling rack to cool completely. Slice and serve the bread or store it, wrapped securely in plastic wrap at room temperature or in the fridge.
