2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 cup cocoa powder, 1 tsp baking soda, 2 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp kosher salt, 6 bananas mashed, 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened, 1 cup chunky peanut butter, slightly melted (creamy works too), 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, 4 eggs, 2 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1-(10 oz bag) dark 72% chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Spray 2 – 9×5-inch loaf pans with nonstick cooking spray. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork or a potato masher. Add the butter and peanut butter, with an electric hand mixer, mix until combined. Add in the sugars, eggs, and vanilla extract, mix until smooth. With a wooden spoon stir in the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, don’t over mix. Finally, mix in dark chocolate chips. Divide batter into the 2 prepared pans. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean. Remove the pans from the oven and set on a wire cooling rack. Run a knife around the edges of the bread. Let the bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then carefully remove from the pan. Let the bread cool on the wire cooling rack until slightly warm. Cut into slices and serve.

Recipe Notes

This recipe makes two 9×5 inch loaves. If it doesn’t get eaten up in minutes like at my house, you can freeze the second loaf until you crave some more!
