Banana Bread with Mini Reese's PB Cups (and an Easy Canvas Print!)

Check out what I got in the mail last week:
Easy Canvas Prints turned the picture I use for my title into a lovely canvas. It's so gorgeous. Totally perks up my room! I can't wait to turn more of my favorite photos into canvas. You can also turn your pictures to canvas with Easy Canvas Prints. (PS Join their mailing list to get great deals!)

Seeing this canvas reminded me that I haven't baked with Reese's Mini Peanut Butter Cups is a LONG time. So, I looked in my "recipes to make" file, and found this recipe for banana bread.

Banana bread is great by itself, so I felt a little devious adding in the PB cups. Like, that's just wrong, right? But oh man, it was so right and good. The addition of a hint of chocolate and peanut butter makes this banana bread awesome!
Banana Bread with Mini Reese's PB Cups (found at Delightful Bitefuls)
Ingredients
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
½ cup butter, softened
¾ cup (packed) brown sugar
2 large eggs, beaten
2 1/3 cups mashed over-ripe bananas (about 5 medium bananas)
1 cup of mini milk chocolate peanut butter cups (you can buy them or make your own)

Directions
Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease 9×5-inch loaf pan.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, soda and salt; set aside.

In a separate large bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar. Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended. Stir banana mixture and mini peanut butter cups into flour mixture; stir until well combined.

Pour batter into prepared loaf pan. Bake 60- 65 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center of loaf comes out clean.

Allow bread to cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Bake well and prosper!

  4. WOW the canvas print looks SO good. How big is yours? And you're going to hang it in the bedroom? I would be so munchy all the time, cuz it looks delicious.

    Banana, chocolate, and peanut butter is like the perfect combo, of course, of course! This is such an excellent idea!
