PRO TIPS: Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread Recipe

  • Always, always, use ripe bananas! Make sure they are brown on the outside
  • Use whatever nuts you have on hand. Or even leave ’em out
  • Use whatever nut butter you have on hand.
  • This will take a while to bake: ensure the toothpick or paring knife comes out clean when you insert it. That means it is done.
  • Need more chocolate-ness? Make my extra chocolate brownies!
