Chocolate Chips and Peanut Butter Banana Muffins


I set out to bake a Chocolate Chips & Peanut Butter Banana Bread and used a smaller loaf pan instead of a bigger one. That of course left me with excess batter.

So. I baked the one in the loaf pan first and then baked the remaining batter in the form of 6 muffins.

One, two, three, four, five. Eh? Six? Shhhh....

Those were a lot more convenient to eat and store compared to the one in the pan which I had to slice.


This cake/muffin is what is commonly known as a quick bread and is a breeze to bake. It's just a matter of preparing the wet and dry ingredients separately and them combining them together. Just do it by hand. No cake mixers required.


Chocolate, bananas and peanut butter - be it baked in a loaf or muffin pan, this quick bread does not disappoint. In fact I had two this morning (defrosted overnight and reheated in the microwave oven) and it was a great breakfast!

  2. My girl has been experimenting making cakes and bread using other types of flour other than wheat but she has not been very successful, poor thing.

    1. I have come across such recipes using almond flour and coconut flour. But I haven't been able to find those ingredients. I am actually quite curious how the bakes will turn out.

  3. Your muffins are fully loaded and studded with chocolate chips I see ;) I couldn't help but notice the link files at the bottom and realised that you must love banana and chocolate chips very much as they feature quite a lot in your muffin recipes...haha! ;D And today's muffin is the marriage of two of your earlier recipes...Peanut Butter Banana and Banana Chocolate Chip. If there's banana in anything...I like :)

    1. The dominant taste was chocolate and bananas. Perhaps I need to go slow on the choc chips and add more peanut butter.
