Ingredients

For the bread

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter, slightly melted
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup mashed bananas
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • banana slices (optional)

For the peanut butter drizzle

  • 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter (Don’t use natural- it won’t work. I used Skippy and it melted fantastically!)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a large loaf pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the slightly melted peanut butter, sugar, mashed bananas, vegetable oil, and eggs. After mixing, stir in cocoa, baking powder & soda, salt, and vanilla. Stir in flour last.
  3. Pour into loaf pan and top with thinly sliced banana pieces. I used 1/2 a banana for this part. Bake for roughly 55 minutes, until a knife inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 20 minutes.
  4. Once the loaf has cooled slightly, top with peanut butter. Melt in a microwave-safe bowl for 30 seconds, then stir. It should become creamy and slightly runny. Depending on your microwave, heat for an additional 15 seconds. Drizzle over loaf. Serve!
