This peanut butter banana bread is a super moist banana bread infused with delicious peanut butter. Then it’s filled with peanut butter chips & chocolate chips. Super easy, one bowl & no mixer – it’s the perfect chunky monkey recipe.
Last week I bought about 1 million different peanut butter treats before making this peanut butter cookie pizza. Peanut butter cups, Reese’s Pieces, peanuts, peanut butter chips, chocolate chips….
Needless to say, I was a little overzealous. And by no means needed that many toppings for just one cookie pizza. So my cupboard was full of candy instead of anything that resembles health food.
So to save myself from eating bags of peanut butter treats in bed on a Friday night, I decided to turn the peanut butter chips into this Peanut Butter Banana Bread.
Because for whatever reason, eating peanut butter chips & chocolate chips baked into a delicious banana bread seems way less desperate and embarrassing.
And it’s delicious.
Now, I’ve made banana bread before and I’ve also made peanut butter bread – which is a delicious peanut butter quick bread. But I think this peanut butter banana bread is my new favorite.
It’s super moist; has that perfectly dense, slightly springy banana bread texture; a ridiculously delicious peanut butter banana flavor; and is packed with peanut butter chips & chocolate chips.
You love that the recipe only uses one bowl and there’s no mixer involved.
To get started we’ll mix together oil, peanut butter, sugars, vanilla & eggs. Then we’ll stir in the mashed bananas (make sure to use very brown ones here), and finally fold in the dry ingredients and chocolate chips.
Then it’s time to bake. It’ll take about 45-55 minutes – but if you notice the top is starting to brown too much, you can tent a piece of aluminium foil over top about 35 minutes in.
It’s packed with flavor, so moist, and the perfect banana bread if chocolate and peanut butter are your calling. Seriously, you’re going to love it.

Delicious recipe! A nice variation to regular banana bread for peanut butter lovers like me! Mine was ready at the 50 minute mark. Also, baking this made the house smell really nice 🙂
