National Peanut Butter Day!

Happy National Peanut Butter Day y’all!  How are you guys celebrating? I’m celebrating by baking up my favorite Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread.  This stuff does not disappoint!  Great minds are thinking alike today because I’ve seen more than one PB Banana Bread recipe out there today, two of them come courtesy of two of my favorite bloggers, Carrie and Natalie!  Make sure you check those out! First things first, eats and the aquarium!

Today, one of my favorite coworkers and I both had the day off and decided to day trip it to the aquarium!  I love science and marine science has always been my favorite.  Before we left I made myself a filling lunch.  Ham and cheese sandwich on an Oro Wheat Sandwich thin.  In the sandwich was a squirt of mustard (love the stuff), laughing cow cheese, ham and tomato. A banana on the side for some sweetness.photo 1(3)I also enjoyed a hot chocolate at the aquarium to you know, keep me warm while outside 😉

After a solid two hours playing with the creatures of the ocean blue it was time to head home and I was starvin like Marvin.  Dinner tonight was comfort food at it’s finest.  A baked pasta casserole, homemade bread, and a salad. Nothing better.  The pasta casserole was out of this world good. Probably not the healthiest, but I’m willing to sacrifice 😉  My step dad is an amazing cook and I love when he makes dinner, especially because that means I don’t have too!

What you’ll need:

  • 3 or 4 ripened bananas, smashed well.
  • 3/4 cup plain greek yogurt. (Regular yogurt will work well too.)
  • 3/4 cup sugar.
  • 1 egg, beaten.
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla. I eyeball this.
  • 1 pinch baking soda.
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour.
  • 1 cup peanut butter.
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. In your mixer combine bananas, yogurt, sugar, egg, vanilla, baking soda, salt, and flour.  Mix until well combined.  Add peanut butter.  Mix until combined.  Spoon into lined muffin tin.  Add chocolate chips.  Bake for 15-20 minutes.  Enjoy 🙂
