Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Bread is even better than classic banana bread because it’s loaded with chocolate chips and creamy peanut butter! This easy banana bread recipe can even be made into muffins.

If you love chocolate and bananas together as much as I do, you should also try these Chocolate Banana Brownies with Peanut Butter Swirl and these Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes!

This Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Is Great For Using Up Leftover Bananas

You guessed it! Jorge bought a TON of bananas again and proceeded to eat two. That left me with 6 overripe bananas. I don’t know when that man will learn to buy a smaller bushel of bananas. It’s like he sees the .79 cents per pound sign and picks out the biggest bananas he can find.

Hopefully one day we will have kids who love bananas as much as he does and I can start pushing bananas on them. Most moms push vegetables, I’ll be begging them to eat bananas.

This Is One Of My Favorite Banana Bread Recipes

This is my 13th Banana Recipe on this blog. Out of those 13 — 6 of the recipes include chocolate. I think it’s fair to say that I like chocolate and banana together. And if there is any way to make banana and chocolate taste even better, it’s to add peanut butter!

I have been making this banana bread for years (like since 2008), but this time I decided to add some peanut butter and chocolate chips to change it up for something a little different. We loved this version and even ended up making french toast with a few slices! Yum!

Yield: 1 8 inch loaf or 12 muffins

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Recipe

This easy banana bread recipe is is even better than classic banana bread because it's loaded with chocolate chips and creamy peanut butter! It can even be made into muffins!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 55 minutes


  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 over ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 8 inch loaf pan with butter (you can also line with parchment paper like I did in the photo - this makes it easy to lift out!). For muffins: line muffin tin with cupcake liners. Set aside.

In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat bananas, sugar, peanut butter and egg - until well combined. Add vegetable oil and vanilla extract. Mix in dry ingredients, stirring until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.

For muffins: Fill muffin tins 3/4 full. Bake muffins for 15-17 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean with just a few crumbs sticking too it.

For bread: Pour into a lined loaf pan and bake for about 45 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out mostly clean with just a few crumbs sticking too it.

    Second time to make these muffins. First time yummy, second time I added 1/2 cup chopped pecans – even yummier! I use natural peanut butter for no added sugar. Need to come up with a natural alternative to sugar; maybe honey?

    This recipe sounds absolutely delicious and I always have some frozen bananas just waiting to be used in baking. We especially buy lots of bananas in the winter, mainly because if we eat lots of bananas in the summer, mosquitoes from hundreds of miles around tend to fly to our yard to enjoy our potassium rich blood πŸ™

  3. Kelly

    Eagerly awaiting these out of the oven. Upped the PB a little because I just love PB and then adjusted the oil down accordingly. I can’t wait for my daughter to come through the door and smell these fresh from the oven. Thank you so much! YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

  4. Pam

    Hi! I just wanted to thank you for the recipe. I tried it this sunday and it’s already gone, my family loved it! Soooo good!

  5. Nancy

    Hi there, just wanted to let you know that this recipe was a knockout on the first try! I was really impressed. I used 2 small bananas so the banana flavor was subtle. Next time I’ll use 3. I also received a request from my husband to add more PB next time! Thanks for posting this! πŸ™‚

  6. Abby

    Wow. I’m in love with these!! I just made a batch of muffins because I figured it would be good portion control…that was plan A. However, after immediately eating 3 MUFFINS IN A ROW, I moved to plan B: give these delicious things to the neighbors and spread the wealth! Absolutely delicious! Definitely going to make these again!

  7. ErinsFoodFiles

    This looks great! I like that this recipe calls for 2 bananas. The last banana bread recipe I read called for 6! I never seem to have THAT many ripe bananas laying around, but will sometimes have 2.

  8. Megan {Country Cleaver}

    I do the same thing and buy way to many bananas and then go, Crap – Now I have to Make Banana Bread!…and then realize OH WAIt – Banana Bread is AWESOME! Problem solved.
    And why has it never dawned on me to add PB? *head slap*

  9. Jessica @ A Kitchen Addiction

    Peanut butter and chocolate are great additions to banana bread! Perfect way to use up those old bananas that go to waste on my counter!

  10. Chung-Ah | Damn Delicious

    What a perfect way to use up those lingering bananas! I used to buy huge bushels too but I finally had to stop because all of them were going to waste. I was too lazy to make banana bread.

  11. Laura (Blogging Over Thyme)

    Ha!! Too funny–I’m always asking Connor why he bought enough bananas to feed a small army. Seriously, there are only so many bananas I can eat in a week (and I like bananas, too).

    But I could definitely make room for several slices of this bread! πŸ™‚

  12. Erin R.

    I have been known to make a meal out of a banana with a tiny dab of peanut butter spread on each bite. So, I think you have done the right thing here.

    My husb has been really into muffins lately so maybe I’ll lay these on him when my bananas turn brown. Looks delicious in the photo. Thanks!

  13. Beth @ bethcakes

    I love that you put peanut butter in this banana bread! Those three flavors are such a perfect combo! I could eat this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. πŸ™‚

  14. Ceara @ Ceara's Kitchen

    WOW! This looks amazing! It just so happens I have two bananas ready to be put in banana bread! I can’t wait to make this! Banana, Peanut Butter and Chocolate seem to be the perfect combination!

  15. Tieghan

    Ok, it is a fact in my brain that bananas and chocolate MUST be paired together! This bread looks awesome and I am kind of in love with it!

  16. Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar

    Haha I have the same problem that Spiffy Cookie does, but either way this bread is definitely appearing in my near future. YUM!

  17. Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie

    I have the opposite problem. I eat all my bananas when I should’ve saved some to bake with. Love this bread and all the flavors.
