Peanut Butter Swirled Banana Bread

I always get so excited when bananas go $.10 a pound at the store. Load me UP!
I once got 30 bananas for 59 cents. Scooore.

I don’t always make banana bread. Because when I make banana bread, I eat the whole loaf in one sitting. None for you, Glen Coco. All for me.

Another reason I don’t make banana bread is because bananas rarely go ripe in this household. And when they get ripe enough to make bread I still eat them plain. Is it weird that I prefer my bananas to have brown spots?

When I smelled the batter for this I knew I had a winner. Then I tasted a slice warm out of the oven…

and I decided I want to marry banana bread.

Peanut Butter Swirled Banana Bread, to be exact.

The middle literally melts in your mouth and the crust is ohsocrunchy without being burnt. 

Do me a favor and please, please make this bread. Make it for your family, make it for your friends. Make it for you. Your heart will thank you.

The batter is the exact same as these muffins I made recently. Just take out the peanut butter, add a cup of blueberries, and make in a muffin pan instead of a bread one!

  1. 1 c all purpose flour
  2. 3/4 c white whole wheat flour
  3. 1/2 c brown sugar
  4. 1/2 c white sugar
  5. 1/2 tsp salt
  6. 1 tsp baking soda
  7. 2 eggs
  8. 1/3 c plain greek yogurt
  9. 1/4 c sunflower oil
  10. 2 large or 3 small bananas (about 1 cup)
  11. 1/2 c peanut butter
  12. 1 tsp vanilla
  13. 1/2 c peanut butter chocolate chips
  14. 1/2 c chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 325F. In a large bowl, mix together flours, sugars, salt, and baking soda. Then add the chocolate chips. In a medium bowl, mix eggs, greek yogurt, sunflower oil, vanilla, and 1/4 cup of melted peanut butter. Save the other 1/4 c for the topping.
  2. Pour the liquids into the flour mixture and stir until just combined; don't overmix. Pour into a greased 9x5 bread pan. Melt the remaining 1/4 c of peanut butter and make about 5 blobs on top of the batter and swirl it around with a knife. Bake for 70 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let rest in pan for at least 10 minutes before cutting.
  1. Please make sure you use a 9x5 pan, not an 8x4. Unless you want yours to be about two inches above the pan.
  2. You can use all chocolate chips instead of half peanut butter chips. Your bread just won't be as peanut buttery.

    Ugh, you get me, girl. Brown spots all the way! I get sad when there are only green bananas in the grocery store. UM can you send me some bananas? 30 for 59 cents?! Crazy. Jealous.
    This bread looks so perfect with the peanut butter swirled in. β™₯

    That looks amazing! I haven’t made banana bead in a while and have always wanted to swirl peanut butter or nutella… Looks so good.
