This delicious peanut butter and chocolate chip bread recipe is for all the peanut butter lovers looking for a different way to incorporate peanut butter into their baked goods. Though there are already so many recipes that combine these two ingredients, there’s always room for one extra easy peanut butter and chocolate recipe in our repertoire.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bread
This recipe includes a whole cup of peanut butter so you can actually taste the peanut butter in the bread. I also use some whole wheat pastry flour to increase the nutrition factor, a bit of brown sugar for some sweetness and some chocolate chips to make the kiddies extra happy. This recipe is easy to make and is a great opportunity to invite the kids into the kitchen and get them involved in making this bread with you.
You can also freeze the loaf or part of it for up to three months. Just make sure to wrap well in plastic wrap and then store it in a freezer bag. To thaw the bread, remove it from the freezer and let it thaw in the refrigerator overnight.
How to Eat Peanut Butter Bread
This Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Loaf is an easy way to have a quick breakfast and makes a great afternoon snack with a tall glass of milk. It’s also great for serving at brunches. I think you’ll find many fun ways to eat this bread. Top slices with butter, jam or Nutella. Or again, toast slices of this bread and spread butter and honey on them or even peanut butter with slices of banana.
