Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

I have a confession to make......I don't like banana bread.  I know it's weird.  What's even weirder is that I really like bananas. I just don't like banana flavored stuff.  I've tried banana flavored cakes, cookies, breads, candy and I'm not sure why but it's just not my favorite.  However, there are others in my house who love banana bread, so when I'm feeling nice and I have a few over ripe bananas that need used up I will occasionally make banana bread.  This go around I used my Mom's traditional banana bread recipe, but decided to jazz it up a bit in hopes that I would enjoy it too. I added peanut butter and chocolate, because we all know chocolate and peanut butter makes everything taste better.  After letting it cool I cautiously took a bite and now I have to confess that I don't like banana bread.....except this Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread.  The addition of chocolate and peanut butter kind of mellow out the banana flavor a little bit and make it not as strong as it is in plain banana bread.  Which was a good thing thing for me, but if you are a banana bread lover don't worry there is still plenty of banana flavor.  The three flavors compliment each other perfectly to create the best banana bread I have ever tasted. 
 
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
1/3 Cup Butter, room temperature
1/3 Cup Peanut Butter
2/3 Cup Sugar
2 Eggs
2 Tablespoons Milk
1 Cup Ripe Mashed Bananas, about 2-3 bananas
1 and 1/4 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
3/4 Teaspoon Salt
1 and 3/4 Cup Flour
1 Cup Chocolate Chips
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  In your mixer cream together the butter, peanut butter, and sugar.  Add the eggs, milk, and mashed bananas.  Mix until completely incorporated.  Add the dry ingredients and mix just until combined.  Stir in the chocolate chips(I reserved a few to sprinkle on top) until evenly distributed.  Pour into a greased bread pan.  Bake in a preheated oven for 60-65 minutes.  Or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.  Cool in the pan for 10 minutes then remove to a wire rack to finish cooling.  Enjoy!
