Recipe: Chocolate Chip Banana Bread with Peanut Butter Drizzle
Chocolate chips meet banana bread meet peanut butter in this delicious recipe. Made with whole wheat flour and maple syrup, this healthier version is just as yummy but not nearly as packed full of sugar or calories as many other versions. If you love bananas, chocolate and/or peanut butter, you’re going to want to try this spectacular combo. Makes for a delightful breakfast or snack!
*White whole wheat flour is milled from whole white wheat rather than “red” wheat, which makes it lighter in color and less dense/bitter in flavor. Yet it’s got the same nutritional value of regular whole wheat flour, which we love!

Yield: 10 serving(s)

- Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix until combined. Add in half cup chocolate chips.
- Add to loaf pan and sprinkle with a handful of chocolate chips over top.
