Peanut butter is like life around. We go through a lot of it. We all love peanut butter on toast, pb&j sandwiches, and peanut butter baked goods. This is one of the baked goods that we love, especially as it includes chocolate too.

The only way we can make banana bread in our house is to hide the bananas from our kids. The most effective way to do that, is to freeze them. When it came time to use them, we took them out to let them thaw, and then our kids took turns mashing them.
