Reese's Mini Peanut Butter Cup Banana Bread

My goal when making banana bread is to camouflage the banana flavor. Did I ever succeed with this recipe!! Imagine a nice banana bread base with a little peanut butter stirred in for flavor and 8 ounces of Mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups! Now we are taking serious banana bread.
This is fun, delicious and just may become your new favorite banana bread recipe. Try it today.

Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Banana Bread
Mix together in a large bowl:
3 very ripe bananas--mashed
1/2 c peanut butter
1/4 cup oil
1 egg
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
In a small bowl mix together:
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix oh so gently, You really just don't want to over mix quick breads. Gently fold in an 8 ounce package of Reese's Mini Peanut Butter Cups. Spray pans with Pam for Baking, I love that stuff. This recipe fills 3 loafs in a Pampered Chef Mini Loaf Pan. Bake at 350 for about 35-40 minutes. Tooth pick will come out mostly clean when done.
I only use mini loaf pans because they are so dang cute, they are easy to share and I have poor luck with regular size loaf pans. Edges burnt, gooey center, center won't rise etc. It doesn't take too many failures for me to find a plan B. In my case when making quick breads plan B is Mini Loaf Pans! I also wonder if altitude may play a part??
Yes, I do sell Pampered Chef. If you live locally and need something I'm sending an order in Saturday. 

Thanks Cookies and Cups for sharing a  great recipe!

Oh my goodness, that looks so tasty. Firstly, those mini loaf moulds are so darn cute - I must have one. Secondly, I have an obsession with peanut butter at the moment. I made some little mini oat, banana and PB muffins (own recipe) which seemed to go down perfectly but I'm intrigued by this recipe and must try it one day.

Throw some candied bacon on top and you could rename this Elvis Bread. :) Thanks for the recent comment too btw. Do you have a good fruit leather recipe? Have fun with those apricots.

If we got Reese's peanut buttercups here, I think this would be my banana bread of choice too!

Nickki said...

oh wow I love the sound of this recipe! we can't get the mini peanut butter cups here easily so I'm going to try this with the regular sized chopped up. Thanks for sharing! x

Wow, what a great idea! I kind of agree with you about masking the banana flavor...and adding peanut butter cups is such a delicious way to do so :)

Are you kidding me??? This sounds ridiculously delicious. I do not know why I haven't thought of it. I can see making this right after Halloween too.
