Peanut Butter Cup Banana Bread + Giveaway!

Peanut Butter Cup Banana Bread

I had some ripe bananas I wanted to use up but I didn’t want to make just banana bread.  I also had some milk and dark chocolate peanut butter cups on hand too.  Which makes for a nice jazzed up banana bread! And who doesn’t like peanut butter cups?

This post today marks my 100th post and in celebration of that, I’m hosting a giveaway to all my existing and new readers.  Everyone likes shopping right? Whether it’s clothes, food, or something for the kitchen.  And everyone likes Sur la Table, right? I don’t think I’ve known anyone who doesn’t like Sur la Table.  I can be at their store and browse for hours.  I usually shop alone because I know Chris gets bored after 20 minutes.  So today, I’m giving away a $50 gift certificate card from Sur la Table.

Peanut Butter Cup Banana Bread

Print this recipe

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups of all-purpose flour, divided
  • 2 teaspoons of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon (I used Vietnamese cinnamon)
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup of Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup of canola oil
  • 1/2 cup of peanut butter
  • 1 cup of light muscovado sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of homemade vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups of bite sized peanut butter cups
  • 1/4 cup of dark chocolate chips
  • 20 miniature dark peanut butter cups, unwrapped, halved and divided

Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease two 8-inch loaf pans.

In a large bowl mix together 2 3/4 cups of flour, baking soda, salt and ground cinnamon.  Set aside.

Using a stand mixer (or mix by hand), beat eggs, bananas, yogurt, canola oil, peanut butter, sugar and vanilla extract until well blended.  Slowly pour the flour mixture into the banana mixture and beat until just moistened.  Toss the bite sized peanut butter cups in the remaining 1/4 cup of flour (to help prevent sinking) and stir into the batter along with the dark chocolate chips.

Divide the batter evenly between the two loaf pans.  Arrange the peanut butter cups over the batter, 10 cups each loaf.  Bake for 55-60 minutes or until toothpick/tester inserted into the center comes out clean.  Let the bread cool in the pan on the cooling rack completely before serving.

Note: You might want to loosely tent the bread with aluminum foil 30-40 minutes into baking, as it can brown quickly.

  1. And I’m following you on Pinterest as KateD. I’m making your Kahlua Dark Chocolate bars for a bake sale this weekend. I’m so glad I found your blog!

  2. Congratulations on your 100th post! Woohoo! That’s a wonderful milestone to celebrate. This banana breads are to die for. I gotta give this a try. 😛

    I love Sur la Table! I haven’t came across anyone who doesn’t like to shop there. If I won, I would get a pizza peel there to get ready for my pizza making production! hahaha…Thanks for hosting the giveaway.

  3. Congratulations on your 100th post! If I won I would like to buy the Breville Rice & Risotto Maker. Thanks for your giveaway. I love your banana bread, looks so delicious!

  4. Woo!! Sur la Table is definitely one of my all time favorite stores. I can’t even begin to think of what I’d do with $50 there.. put it towards a new Shun knife purchase? Get a huge marble baking slab for pastries and a pretty backdrop for food blog photos? Walk away with some pretty white porcelain dishware? The possibilities are endless!

    I’m also following you on Pinterest and Google+. I love that you have a board called A Difference Kind of Yummy. 🙂

  5. Wow, that is so sweet and generous of you! I would put the gift card toward a little pasta machine so I could attempt ChgoJohn’s Bartolini pasta 🙂

  6. For some reason, I missed this post. Anyway, I do not qualify. I only have Facebook which I just “liked” your site! 😀 )))
    Congratulations on your 100th post! I love every post of yours which I have not missed. Cheers!

  7. Thank you for “liking” my Apricot Glazed Pork Chop recipe. At this very moment in time, I don’t know what I’d purchase should I be a winner … as I said in that post, I’m not really a kitchen-dweller (I cook more for the dogs than I do for myself). But I’m doing more in that once-mystical room and would love the chance to use the gift card to entice me into new experiences! Also, letting you know that I am linking in today’s post to your blog. Thanks again for reading and for sharing your DELICIOUS sounding banana bread recipe. This one I have to try (it’s rumored that I make a killer banana rum bread, actually). : )-

  9. I would buy a rolling pin…because after all this time I’m still using a drinking glass to roll dough! I’d probably also get some cute tabletop items to use for my food photography!

  10. Wow…oh wow… oh wow – this looks awesome!! Question – I don’t think they sell muscovado sugar here in the States. (I used to be able to buy it when we lived in Malta.) Do you think I could substitute regular white sugar?
