Day 296: Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Banana Bread

When I saw this recipe I KNEW I had to try it.  Talk about the food of the Gods!  The only way a recipe like this could sound better is if I found a way to add bacon to it!  I adapted this from a site called Chez Us.

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Banana Bread
10" dutch oven

1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
4 large bananas, mashed
1 egg
1/3 cup heavy cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup chocolate chips

Cream the butter, cream cheese and peanut butter until smooth.  Add the brown sugar, egg and vanilla, mixing well for 2-3 minutes.  Mix in bananas and heavy cream until smooth.  Add the flour, baking soda and baking powder and mix until combined.  Fold in chocolate chips.  Pour batter into a greased dutch oven and bake at 350° for 40-50 minutes or utnil a toothpick comes out clean.  Makes 1 large loaf.

The Finished Product

The Reveiw

This is soooo good!  I've found my new favorite banana bread recipe.  Next time I make it, I'm going to be sure I'm home all alone so I can eat the whole thing myself!  As soon as my kids found out what it was they started devouring it.  It was like watching hogs being slopped.  You'd think I hadn't fed them in a month.  Seriously, you have to try this!  Grade A.


  1. Sprinkle, crisp, crumbled bacon on top like they do on doughnuts. You got it. Predict Elvis bread! Go for it.

  2. Yummmy I will have to make this :)
