Trying to decide the best way to describe this banana bread, and my husband says that YUM pretty much sums it up. As if perfectly moist, sweet, banana bread wasn’t yummy enough, adding peanut butter and chocolate chips takes it to a whole new level. Serve it slightly warm and enjoy every gooey, peanut buttery, chocolatey, banana bite!
