Memphis Mafia Banana Bread
So this banana bread has peanut butter and chocolate chips in it. Reminds me of the Voodoo Doughnut Memphis Mafia banana fritter (chocolate and peanut butter drizzled banana fritter).
The first time I heard of this banana bread combination was from a friend (and fellow blogger) Marni.
I had a White Elephant and Potluck party at work and with so many bananas in my freezer I figured there was no better time than now to give it a try.... and I turned mine into muffins instead of a loaf.
Here's the recipe I used but I altered it some (because of what was or wasn't in my cupboards):
|ignore the baking powder above....it snuck into the picture|
1 1/2 C ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 C cream cheese, softened
1/2 C peanut butter, creamy
3 Tbs butter, melted
1/2 C white sugar
1/2 C brown sugar, packed
1 1/2 C flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 C semi sweet chocolate chips
Cream bananas, cream cheese, peanut butter, butter and egg.
Add sugars. Mix well.
Add flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Blend well.
Fold in chocolate chips.
Spoon 2 TB worth of batter into papered muffin tins.
Bake for 25 minutes. Yields 2 dozen.
