Peanut Butter Banana Bread

If your house is anything like mine, you are still knee deep in Halloween candy.  I let my son have one piece of candy in his lunch, and then if he is lucky he can have another piece after dinner.  Needless to say, it lasts a really long time around here so I needed to find a way to use it up and made this delicious Peanut Butter Banana Bread.
This bread is perfect for those leftover Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.  If you haven’t stashed them away for yourself, that is.  Or maybe that is just me    The bread also uses up those browning bananas you have on the counter or stashed in your freezer.  See, I am here to help! And because it is me, and I don’t know when to stop I added a layer of Nutella on top.

I am not usually a big fan of plain banana bread.  There is just too much banana flavor.  I realize that doesn’t make much sense.  I like bananas, but only every once in awhile.  So when I saw this recipe that added peanut butter to the batter I was excited to give it a try.  There is still a hint of banana in the background, but the peanut butter really shines through.  And then every once in awhile you get a bite with a peanut butter cup, and you are in heaven!

Peanut Butter Banana Bread
Adapted from Cookies and Cups

3 medium over ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup canola oil
1 egg
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
8 oz bag of Reese’s Mini cups (or 1 cup chopped Peanut Butter Cups)
1/4 cup Nutella

Preheat oven to 350.  Spray an 8×4 inch loaf pan liberally with non stick spray.
Whisk together your flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.  In a large bowl mix together bananas, peanut butter, canola oil, egg, sugar and brown sugar.  Add the flour mixture to the banana mixture, and stir until just combined.  Be careful not to over mix.  Fold in the peanut butter cups.
Spread the batter into your prepared pan.   Drop spoonfuls of Nutella across the top, and swirl into the batter.  Bake for 55-65 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean.  Remove and place on a wire rack to cool.  After 20 minutes, you can remove from pan, and place directly on the wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy this Peanut Butter Banana Bread
