Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread......For Ashley!
I had a bunch of bananas laying around and decided to make banana bread with them, but not just any banana bread would do.
I made peanut butter chocolate chip banana bread for my peep Ashley. Now I am not going to bust her out and let everyone know that I actually gave Ashley 2 of these mini loaves of love. One for her and one for her hubby. No, I wouldn't want him asking her what happened to his loaf of banana bread and why it didn't make it home for him to enjoy?????? I would never do such a thing...ever.
Sooooo, before he finds out about these little loaves of greatness, here is the recipe Ashley, you can make him a bunch of his own. This recipe is easy and fast to make. The results are super delicious. Even Mr. Pickypants loved them.
This recipe is for mini loaves, but you can make it in a regular size loaf pan and bake for 30-40 minutes, keep checking every few minutes after the 30 minute mark until toothpick comes out clean.

1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
 1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1 egg
2 very ripe bananas, mashed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray 6 mini loaf pans with non stick cooking spray and set aside. In a large bowl, whisk all dry ingredients together until combined- flour, baking powder, soda, salt and sugars. Create a well in the center and pour in remaining ingredients, excluding the chocolate chips. Mix until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Divide evenly between loaf pans and bake 20-25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean when inserted. Cool 5 minutes in pan and remove to cooling racks. Serve warm or at room temperature.
