Best Banana Bread Ever: Peanut Butter Cup Banana Bread

  • Wow, I don’t know if banana bread can get any better than this! Think about it...

    -Banana & peanut butter are a match made in heaven
    -Banana bread is always more fun with a handful of choc. chips tossed in.

    This recipe truly is the ultimate slice of banana bread heaven!

  • This recipe calls for Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups. You can buy the traditional size and chop them for the recipe. Or, if you want to try something a little fun, grab a bag of these “minis!”

  • These are even smaller than the bite-sized peanut butter cups. They come already unwrapped and are about the size of a jumbo chocolate chip. I found this 8 ounce bag was just about 1 1/2 cups as called for in this recipe.

  • Can I even tell you how amazing my kitchen smelled while this was baking? It was hard not to gobble it down moments after it came out of the oven! I loved that the bread sliced perfectly and the peanut butter cups and chopped dark chocolate were evenly dispersed.

    3 cups All Purpose Flour, divided
    2 tsp Baking Soda
    ½ tsp Salt
    1 tsp Cinnamon
    4 Very Ripe Bananas, slightly mashed
    ½ cup Peanut Butter
    1 cup Sour Cream
    2 Eggs
    ¼ cup Coconut Oil or Canola Oil


  • 1 cup Packed Light Brown Sugar
    1 tsp Vanilla
    1 1/2 cups Bite-sized Peanut Butter Cups, or chopped peanut butter cups
    1 (3- To 3.5-oz) Bar Premium Dark Chocolate, chopped

  • Directions:

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees; spray two 9x5” loaf pans with cooking spray.

    In a large bowl, whisk together 2 ¾ cups of the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon; set aside.

  • Fit a stand mixer with the paddle attachment. Beat the bananas, peanut butter, sour cream, eggs, oil, brown sugar & vanilla until well blended, about 2 minutes. Spoon the flour mixture into the banana mixture & beat on low speed until just blended.


  • Toss the peanut butter cups in the remaining ¼ cup flour (to help prevent sinking) and stir into the batter along with the chopped dark chocolate.

  • Divide the batter evenly between the two loaf pans. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans. Cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.
