Fuel for Reading

I thought I'd share one of my favorite recipes for a snack that is the perfect accompaniment for a good book, especially as the days start to get cooler and shorter! This recipe is for some yummy peanut butter chocolate chip banana bread. Um, what's not to love right? Basically when I buy some bananas and one gets a little too ripe (I prefer to eat mine on the green side) I throw them in the freezer and when I get two I make this recipe. It makes two yummy loaves. You could freeze one for later but my boyfriend eats them up before that's necessary! So without further ado...

Most Delicious Banana Bread
-2 1/2 cups flour
-1/2 cup sugar
-1/2 cup brown sugar
-1 T. baking powder
-1 t. salt
-1/2 t. cinnamon
- 2 ripe bananas
-1 cup milk (I use skim)
-2/3 cups + 2 T. peanut or almond butter
-2 T. canola oil
-2 t. vanilla
-2 eggs
-1 cup chocolate chips (this would be delicious with different flavors of chips)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Add and mix flour, sugars, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in large bowl.
3. Mix mashed banana, milk, peanut butter, oil, vanilla, and egg in medium bowl.
4. Add the banana mixture to the flour mixture and stir till all mixed together.
5. Mix in chocolate chips.
6. Grease 2 regular size loaf pans and add batter evenly to the two pans.
7. Bake for 35-45 minutes

Eat and enjoy with your favorite books and friends!
