Peanut Butter Cup Banana Bread

Peanut Butter Cup Banana Bread is super moist and packed with chocolate and peanut butter cups. It’s so delicious, I don’t think I’ll ever make traditional banana bread again.

  • 3 cups all purpose flour, divided 320g
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon I didn't use
  • 4 large very ripe bananas slightly mashed (about 3 cups)
  • ½ cup peanut butter 128g
  • 1 cup sour cream 230g
  • 2 eggs at room temperature
  • ¼ cup coconut or canola oil 50mL
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed 170g
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups bite-sized peanut butter cups, or chopped peanut butter cups (I used Reese's) 230g
  • 3 ounces premium dark chocolate, chopped I used 1 cup/155g Ghiradelli Bittersweet Chocolate Chips


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.; spray two 9”X5” loaf pans with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together 2 ¾ cups flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon; set aside.
  • Fit a stand mixer with the paddle attachment. Beat the bananas, peanut butter, yogurt, eggs, oil, brown sugar, and vanilla until well blended, about 2 minutes. Spoon the flour mixture into the banana mixture and beat on low speed until just blended. Toss the peanut butter cups in the remaining ¼ cup flour and stir into the batter. Stir in the chopped 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 with moist crumbs. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans. Cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.
