Reese's Peanut Butter Banana Bread
Banana bread is one of those scrumptious sweet breads that has lots of flavor tricks up it's sleeve. I like to shake-up what ingredients I partner with banana bread, sometimes adding cinnamon and toffee or returning to my first love by giving it a dreamy banana pudding twist.
Overripe Bananas Never Tasted So Good
This bread heavenly to serve and makes a delectable quick snack with a steamy cuppa java or with a special cup filled with hot tea. This recipe makes two loaves so, go ahead and whip up a batch and share one loaf with a neighbor or good friend. It's sure to put a smile on their face.

These look really yummy my grandkids would love them. Any chance they could be made into mini muffins if so any idea for bake times.
You can make this into any shape you like. Check them around 18-20 minutes with a toothpick.

Has anyone tried this in the bread machine?
I haven't tested this in a bread machine. If you try it let us know how it goes!
Hi Melissa, what is chopped Reeses cups. Haven't heard of it yet
Reese's cups that are chopped using a knife.
Is it possible to leave out the bananas; as I am allergic to bananas?
Since this is banana bread, I don't think it's possible to leave them out. You may like to check out the other breads and cakes I have in the recipe index for another flavor.
I made this tonight...yes even on one of hottest days of year..
I didn't have self rising flour so I made my own 1 cup ap flour 1 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt.
Adjusting to get amount of flour listed in recipe.
BIG HIT!! THANK YOU😀
Thanks so much!
I’m obsessed with peanut butter cups. PB and chocolate anything always catches my attention. However, I can’t eat anything that contains yogurt, sour cream, or cream cheese. Basically any sour/cultured milk product. What could be used instead of yogurt? And it can’t be sour cream either. Thanks.
You could replace it with milk, if you can tolerate that.
What about the non dairy sour cream
What is the difference in cook times if i use mini loaf pans?
Likely around 20-25 minutes depending on the size of the loaf pans and if they're silicone, metal or ceramic. That would allow for variables. To be safe, check them at 20 minutes with a toothpick, or gently touch the top to see if it springs back. Add time in 5 minute increments from there.
Can I use something else besides the yogurt
You can use the same amount of sour cream.
I feel like maybe I'm missing something... Usually i put baking soda in my banana bread but this one doesn't call for it. They've not risen like mine usually do or like the photo in your recipe.
I would check the date on your baking powder.
Could it be that you used all purpose flour? This recipe calls for self-rising. One can add salt and baking powder to all-purpose flour to make this recipe work.
How much of each? I have regular flour….
To convert all purpose flour to self-rising flour for this recipe add 3 tsp baking powder and 3/4 tsp salt.

I USE BAKING SODA "AND" BAKING POWDER IN MY BANANA BREAD RECIPES. I'VE DONE A
'LOT' OF RESEARCH. AND ALL PURPOSE FLOUR IS FINE; YOU DON'T NEED SELF-RISING FLOUR IF YOU USE BOTH BAKING POWDER AND BAKING SODA.
Self rising flour already has leavening included hence the name. All purpose flour does not, so you have to add leavening and salt.
This looks amazing, and I just happen to have 2 small very ripe bananas, and my son is a Reeses'jP B Cup addict. So I plan to halve the recipe and make 1 loaf for him.
Thanks for sharing. I see the novelty of your writing, I will share it for everyone to read together. I look forward to reading many articles from you.
I live in the UK love your recipes but find it a real chore having to spend so much time changing the ingredients into metric measurements. Please can't you give the option for metric ?
