Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Michelle H.

½ c. flour
½ c. brown sugar
¼ c. creamy peanut butter
½ tsp. ground cinnamon

½ c. butter, softened
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 ¼ c. sugar
2 eggs
1 c. mashed ripe bananas (about 3 medium)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 ¼ c. flour
1 ½ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 ½ c. chocolate chips

In small bowl, stir the flour, brown sugar, peanut butter, and cinnamon until crumbly; set aside. In a large bowl, cream the butter, cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in bananas and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon; stir into creamed mixture just until moistened. Divide half of the batter between two greased 8” loaf pans. Sprinkle with half of the topping. Top with chocolate chips. Repeat layers of batter and topping. Bake at 350 for 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
