Reese's Peanut Butter Egg Banana Bread



Easter is long gone but for those of us who still have leftover candy there are not too many recipes that call for Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs, and as you can see I have a few. I love these things but I think it is safe to say that I have eaten my share for the season. As I also had some bananas I thought this might be an interesting recipe, after all who doesn't like peanut butter and bananas, throw in some chocolate and you have perfection!



This is a great recipe and it makes two loafs so if you are not too sure of the chocolate and peanut butter than you could try one of each.



Banana Bread Recipe

Ingredients:

1 cup softened butter
2 cups Sugar
4 eggs
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
4 cups of flour
6 ripe bananas
15 small or 7 large Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs chopped

Directions:

Prepare two pans with cooking spray and set aside. Preheat over to 325. Cream together butter and sugar, add eggs and blend together. Then add the smashed bananas.  In a separate bowl mix flour, salt and baking soda. Add dry ingredients to the wet. Mix only until the flour is incorporated. Then  add the chopped peanut butter eggs. Pour into prepared pans.  Bake for 1 1/4 hours or until a knife comes out clean. Set on wire rack for 5 minutes, then turn bread out of pan and let cool. If you can wait that long.




I was not too sure that I would like the peanut butter eggs, so I made one loaf of each. The above photo has a lot of chopped up Reese's Eggs, you do not need to put that many in your batch. It is your preference.




I made a plain loaf also, and if you want you can add nuts to it.


I hope you try this recipe, it is great! Frankly I have tried many banana bread recipes and this one is my favorite.

Have a great day!
