Gluten free peanut butter chocolate chip banana bread. That’s a mouthful just to say, but it is SO worth it. Let me start off quick, by reeling in some of you peanut butter haters out there. This calls for a very small amount of peanut butter chocolate chips, so the flavor is subtle. BUT, if you’re really hating on it or allergic, feel free to leave them out completely. You could substitute some walnuts or chopped pecans instead, or just do chocolate chips, or just plain ol’ banana bread - no matter what you choose, it’s going to be a knockout.
This one is so good, you’re going to just want to make two right off the bat. Seriously. You’ll want it for breakfast, a mid-afternoon snack, dessert…any meal, all the time. Sharing is caring though, so maybe wrap one of those up and gift it to a friend, because what better way to make someone’s day?!
4 T butter - room temperature (or almost room temp)
4 T unsweetened apple sauce
