Banana bread is a favourite in many households. Not only because it uses up those over-ripe bananas that have been sitting in the fruit bowl for a couple of weeks, but because it's a delicious treat that's a hit with all the family. This peanut butter banana bread recipe however, mixes things up a bit. Take your normal banana bread, and add chocolate, and peanut butter, and you know you're in for a right treat!
