Homemade Banana Bread with Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chips

By now, you probably know that I love banana bread. I’ve made it with chocolate, caramel, and dulce de leche, I’ve turned classic banana bread into cookies and muffins, and I even used it as inspiration for one of my favorite smoothies. What can I say? I know what I like. (And judging from how many of you have read and shared these recipes, I know what you like, too!)

This Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Bread is incredibly moist, perfectly sweet and loaded with peanut butter and chocolate chips. This Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Bread is the perfect breakfast or dessert! I like to drizzle mine with melted chocolate and peanut butter, but it’s also great with a pad of butter, a schmear of Nutella, or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Key Ingredients

You’ll recognize a lot of standard baking ingredients in this homemade banana bread recipe, including: all-purpose flour, baking soda, salt, brown sugar, eggs, and pure vanilla extract. But I also included buttermilk and coconut oil to make this loaf extra dense and moist, which of course the mashed ultra-ripe bananas contribute to, as well.

Then, of course, there’s the creamy peanut butter and semisweet chocolate chips. You could also use Nutella or dark chocolate chips, or both!

How To Make the Best Banana Bread

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 5 loaf pan and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients — flour, baking soda and salt — and set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the wet ingredients — bananas, peanut butter, brown sugar, buttermilk, coconut oil, eggs, and vanilla extract.
  4. Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and mix just until combined. (You want to see streaks of flour.) Fold in the chocolate chips gently.
  5. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan, and bake for 1 hour or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted comes out mostly clean.
  6. Remove from the oven, and allow the bread to cool completely before releasing from the pan.
  7. Once bread is cool, drizzle the melted chocolate and peanut butter on top of bread.
  8. Store at room temperature for up to 4 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.

Tips for Making the Best Banana Bread

  • My trick to banana bread is to add extra bananas. You can never have too many bananas in banana bread! I usually add 4 large bananas to my bread to keep it extra moist and to add extra sweetness.
  • The riper the banana the better! I always reach for almost black bananas! These will give you the most sweetness and softness to your bread!
  • I also add buttermilk and coconut oil to keep the bread super moist (and to avoid drying it out in the baking process).
  • Don’t over-mix your batter. This will create a tougher, chewier banana bread. You want to still see streaks of flour, and that’s when you stop mixing.

  • Quite possibly, THE best banana bread recipe I’ve ever seen! Made this tonight. So delicious. Very moist. Slices broke apart in the middle peanut butter spots so didn’t really hold together. Didn’t have peanut butter chips so made a crumble topping (flour, brown sugar, peanut butter and butter). My kids and their friends love banana bread, and this will be my go to recipe for a while. Thank you for the recipe.

  • Sabrina

    This is hands down the best banana bread I’ve ever made. I tried it and said it was the best. My coworkers said the same. This is going to be my go-to banana bread recipe from now on.

  • Marisol Ravicz

    Can I use white whole wheat flour in place of all purpose flour? If I do, do I substitute 1:1 by volume? By weight?
    Thanks for the advice!
    With Warm Regards,
    Marisol

  • Hi Marisol!

    I recommend substituting half of the flour listed for white whole wheat flour. I find that half and half is typically the best combination. All whole wheat could make this bread really dense and dry. That is why I think both will be best.

    Let me know how you make out! Thanks!
