Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Banana Bread

I found this recipe on Pinterest, and I just had to try it.
I love all things PB cup & banana bread and this did not disappoint.
While we ate it more as a dessert / sweet treat than a breakfast bread, I'm sure it would be great for breakfast.

3 very ripe bananas
1/2C peanut butter
1/4C canola oil
1 egg, room temperature
1/2C sugar
1/4C brown sugar
1.5C all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1.5 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1C crushed Reeses peanut butter cup miniatures (I used a little less than half of a 19.75oz bag)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease a loaf pan with butter.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl (I used my KitchenAid), mix bananas, peanut butter, oil, egg, and sugars until well combined.
  5. Pour your dry ingredients into the peanut butter mixture, mix until just combined. (Do not be alarmed, it will be lumpy).
  6. Fold in peanut butter cup pieces.
  7. Pour batter into loaf pan.
  8. Place piece of tented aluminum foil over the top of the loaf pan to prevent the bread from browning too quickly (as mine did). 
  9. Bake for 55-60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and the bread is a golden brown shade.
  10. Let cool for at least 10 minutes in pan.
  11. Remove from pan if you want, or just leave it hanging out in there.
  12. Enjoy!
