A fun take on a classic banana bread!
  • 2 cups of flour - I use freshly ground whole wheat flour for the best taste and nutrition
  • ¾ t baking soda
  • ½ t fine sea salt (if using salted butter, reduce to ¼ t)
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • ¼ cup (2 oz) of coconut oil or butter, softened
  • ½ cup of sugar
  • ½ cup of peanut butter
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup of plain yogurt
  • ½ cup of chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease a 9x5 bread pan.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl. Whisk to combine.
  3. Peel bananas and mash in a large bowl - I use a potato masher for this!
  4. Add oil, sugar, peanut butter, eggs, and yogurt to the bananas and whisk to combine. You may still have banana lumps in the batter - that's fine.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir until flour is moistened. Don't over mix.
  6. Melt the chocolate chips in a small bowl. I heat at high in the microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Add another 30 seconds in microwave and stir until the chips are melted. Let the chips cool for a couple minutes.
  7. Add one cup of the bread batter to the chocolate chips and stir until combined.
  8. Alternately spoon the batters into the prepared bread pan. Swirl with a knife.
  9. Bake for 75 minutes in preheated 350 degree oven, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Depending on your oven, you may need to add 10 minutes (or even subtract 10 minutes). If your bread starts getting too brown towards the end of baking, cover with tin foil for the last part of the baking time.
  10. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes before turning out onto wire rack to cool completely.
  11. We wrap our uneaten bread in tin foil and store in the fridge. I hear it will keep days like this, but ours never lasts that long!
