Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Mini Loaves

When I saw this recipe on Laurens Latest, I knew I would have to make it sooner or later.  It looked way too good not to try.  I know that some people don’t like banana with peanut butter, but I adore it.  This bread was just as terrific as I thought it would be.

However, next time I think I’ll use less chocolate chips – or at least no chocolate chips in mine.  I liked the peanut butter banana flavor but for some reason I never enjoy chocolate chips in bread.  Such as pumpkin chocolate chip or regular banana chocolate chip.  I just prefer it without the chocolate chips!  Anyway, I think next time I’ll just use 1/4 cup chocolate chips.  You could also use some whole wheat flour and olive oil if you prefer.  Finally, I needed a couple of extra minutes of baking time.  I don’t know if it’s just me or if other people have these issues as well, but it seems to take my oven forever to bake anything with banana in it!
