Chocolate Chip Banana Bread with Peanut Butter Drizzle
Serves: 1 loaf
  • 1¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup light or dark brown sugar
  • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup mashed ripe banana
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • ½ cup confectioners sugar
  • 2 tablespoons chopped roasted peanuts
  • 2 tablespoons milk, plus extra to get to drizzle consistency
  1. Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Beat eggs and sugar, then butter and banana in a large bowl. Mix in dry ingredients, and then chocolate chips. Pour into an 9-inch greased loaf pan; bake until golden brown and a toothpick or cake tester comes out clean, about 50 minutes. Remove from oven and let sit in pan to firm up, just a few minutes. Turn onto a wire rack to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, mix peanut butter, confectioner’s sugar, and peanuts in a small bowl. Add enough milk to get to thick drizzle consistency. Drizzle over banana bread and serve.
