makes one 9 x 5-inch loaf
1 lightly packed cup light brown sugar
scant 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
2 large eggs
2 ripe medium size bananas
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp table salt (or 1 tsp kosher salt)
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1/3 cup milk
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and butter and lightly flour one 9 x 5 inch loaf pan.
Add one lightly packed cup of light brown sugar to a large mixing bowl and add a scant 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter and use a rubber spatula to cream those together.
Then add two large eggs and mix those in.....and then add two medium size ripe bananas and use a fork to mash those into the mix.
Next, use another mixing bowl to combine 2 cups all-purpose flour with 1 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips and toss to combine.
Alternately add the dry ingredients to the peanut butter and banana mix with 1/3 cup milk.......and then transfer that to the prepared loaf pan and place it onto the center rack of the preheated oven.
That's going to take just about one hour to bake and you'll want to use a toothpick to check it for doneness.
At that point, let it cool down for a few minutes in the pan and then carefully turn it out onto a cooling rack to finish cooling down.
Substitute semi-sweet chips if you like.
