    It has been awhile since we have shared a new banana bread recipe on the blog.

    I made so many loafs over the past couple of years between my Paleo Chocolate Chip Banana Bread, Vegan Cinnamon Coffee Cake, Dark Chocolate Sweet Potato loaf and so on, that I was really satisfied for a bit.

    Until I was craving a slice of banana bread that had a ton of peanut butter flavor with melted chocolate and didn’t call for any eggs in it. Aka I was out of eggs and didn’t feel like going to the store to get more..

    I didn’t even plan on sharing this recipe as I was making in the kitchen. I had zero expectations for how it would turn out, but the second I took this sweet and banana-y loaf out of the oven, I knew it was going to be a-m-a-z-i-n-g.

    This Vegan Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Banana Bread pretty much combines all of my favorite foods into one perfectly delicious recipe. We have bananas, chocolate and peanut butter all in one gluten and dairy-free banana bread!

    What I love about this bread is how versatile and EASY it is to make too. I used sprouted oats and oat flour as the flour but you can absolutely sub spelt or gluten-free flour if you choose.

    I use Better Body Foods Coconut Oil and their PBFit Official Powdered Peanut Butter in this recipe too. I love baking with their PBFit as you saw in those Double Layer Peanut Butter Brownie Cookie Bars and even in my PB&J Smoothie Bowl! Better Body Foods makes a variety of staples that you will love to have on hand in your kitchen. Their coconut flour, chia seeds and superfood blends are also some of my favorites. They make the most healthy and tasty ingredients that you can use for so many recipes!

    But first let’s make this Vegan Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Banana Bread. It will hit the spot for a sweet breakfast combined with your favorite yogurt and granola. Or you can eat it as is for snack and dessert. I smeared a slice with a thick layer of creamy cashew butter and it was SO GOOD (here is the one I use – code RACHL for free shipping of $20 or more orders!).

    Only want half of a loaf at first? Freeze the other half! This loaf freezes very well and can easily be defrosted and reheated as you’d like.

    I cannot wait to hear what you think! Don’t forget to tag me and #rachLeats when you make it 🙂

    1. Question: in the ingredient list, you indicate using creamy peanut butter. In the directions, you say to add pb powder -there is no mention of adding the peanut butter. Is there something missing or am I not reading it correctly? Thanks. Look forward to trying the recipe.

    2. Hi —I suspect maybe the taller loaves are the result of rolling the dough more tightly. This causes the center to rise upwards, rather than outwards, as the loaves bake. If you want taller loaves, try rolling as tightly as possible, given the challenge of the loose cheese. Personally, my loaves always come out not a lot flatter than the recipe photo, but a bit. I don”t worry about it, though, because they still look awesome and taste even better! [email protected]

    3. I just made these tonight in a muffin pan (because my 3 year old loves “cupcakes”). Sooo good. I love the peanut butter flavor. Thanks for the recipe!
