Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Banana Cake
Apparently I did…I am now addicted to Twitter.
(don’t tell my husband…)
So, on Thursday afternoon, I sent out a tweet to all my Twitter friends asking for ideas on what to do with overripe bananas. Immediately, I got two responses from my ever so reliable foodie friends Maria and Dawn…a recipe for Banana Cinnamon Chip Cake and Mama Dip’s Famous Banana Bread. Since I had everything on hand for the cake, I went with that recipe. But my mouth is watering for some of Mama Dip’s Banana Bread so that one is officially bookmarked.
I have not been able to find Cinnamon Chips yet…I know I am missing out…so instead I used what I had on hand, Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chips. You can’t go wrong with PB, chocolate and banana in my book! I love how easy this cake was to make. One bowl!! This is so my kind of baking. And the banana makes it so moist…you’ll never miss the butter or oil.
So come and join the fun…follow me on Twitter…you know you want to!! 😉

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Banana Cake
- 3 very ripe bananas
- 2 large eggs
- 1 ½ cups unbleached all-purpose flour
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup peanut butter and chocolate chips
- 3 Tbsp. granulated sugar
- 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Butter or spray an 8-inch square pan.
- In a medium mixing bowl, mash the bananas well with a fork or potato masher. Add the eggs, and stir well to combine. Add the flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and vanilla, and stir to mix. Add ¾ cup of the cinnamon chips, and stir briefly. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, and set aside.
- In a small bowl, stir together the topping ingredients. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the batter in the pan, and top with the remaining ¼ cup chips.
- Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool in the pan on a wire rack for at least 15 minutes before serving.

Sounds like you are having fun! I don’t have time to do facebook, plus all the others so I twitter now and again as well, but not very often. This cake looks amazing! I love how moist it looks and I bet the flavor is fantastic.
Ah! I have been wanting to make this recipe. My publix JUST start carrying the cinnamon chips. Looks like it turned out perfect.
I am so glad you liked the cake. I will try it with PB and chocolate next time. Looks good! I am so glad you are my Twitter bud! It is addicting, my hubby thinks I need to join an “AA” type group for twittering and blogging:)
I cant find cinnamon chips either. Soooo annoying!
Wow, this looks delicious! And I especially love the fact that it’s not entirely bad for you since it does not have a ton of butter or oil! Can’t wait to try it.
Yum! This looks so wonderful! I agree with you completely…you can’t go wrong with pb, banana and chocolate.
Twitter is very easy to get addicted to. I’m an addict. 🙂
Chocolate and peanut butter are so delicious together – yummy cake!
Mmm, so many delicious flavors all together in one bread. Starred!
I love chocolate and PB together and add in bananas and it’s out of this world. This looks so good Aggie!
This looks delicious, Aggie. I have to say, I haven’t started Twitter or even looked to see what it is. Sounds addicting though. I love that you used peanut butter and chocolate in this banana cake. Yum!
ha ha! yes Maria’s recipes can do that to you. love that there is pb, choco and banana in here: flavorcity!
and yes, twitter is kind of addicting
Your cake looks yummy! I’ll have to checkout Twitter.
Everything I love in one neat square!
Twitter. I can’t go there. I’m already addicted to FB. This cake look delish.
I totally want a piece of that cake! I’m bookmarking it to try soon!
That looks so good. You can see the chunks of banana in it.
Oh – that sounds SO good! I haven’t been able to find the cinnamon chips yet either.
looks delish, i’m adding it to my “to-bake” list!
This looks fantastic. A must make.
I have added it to my list.
Actually, I have a “cake collection” event on my blog, with a cookbook giveaway… will you be interested to link to your cake? Details here: http://www.familyfriendlyfood.com/cake-collection/
I’m so behind the times. I think I know what Facebook is, but I haven’t a clue what Twitter is. It’s fun to say, though! Your cakes would be fun to eat! I’ve not seen cinnamon chips either, but I’d not miss them at all the way you’ve prepared this beauty. YUM!
Oh Aggie, my kids would love this! I may have to make it for them this week.
I’m twittering too…KaTom has one then I have my own personal one.
Do you use TweetDeck? I just installed it.
Ooohh! a new and delicious way to enjoy 3 of my favorites foods.
And twitter – I must stay away or the day is lost! 🙂
What a great find! I’ve never seen cinnamon chips before, but those are probably adaptable. This would be perfect with a cup of tea!
This looks great!
I love trying different banana bread and cake recipes. This one looks like a winner. I plan on trying it soon!
I have been hearing alot about twitter lately but haven’t had the time to check it out yet. Sounds like fun!!
The banana bread looks fantastic and I agree that you can’t go wrong with peanut butter, chocolate and bananas!
First, this cake looks amazing — I want to make it. Second, it is so funny that you mention Twitter! I just opened an account as well, but I’m thoroughly confused. I didn’t spend a ton of time trying to figure it out — yet — I figure Facebook and blogging are huge (but really fun!) time black holes as it is. And since Twitter wasn’t intuitive to me, I wondered if it somehow “knew” that I was probably too old and uncool to be tweeting, kind of like trying to get into Studio 54 back in the day. Anyway, now that I know that you and some of my other fun foodie friends are on there, I might spend some more time trying to figure it out!
Mmm, wow this looks great! I recently had a few ripe bananas I needed to use up and made some pretty tasty banana espresso chocolate chip muffins! This cake looks fantastic, though!
We can’t find cinnamon chips in Canada. Hope you can find them. Looks really good. I’m following you on Twitter now.
I do not like bananas much, but enjoy cooking especially food cake. Meetings not very good that this will taste like
I will write again on his blog about this subject when completed
Exactly the kind of banana bread I’ve been looking for. Thank you!
Anything with bananas, chocolate chips and peanut butter works for me. Looks awesome!
Your hotos are making me hungry – and now I am wanting a twitter account too.
I just wanted to let you know that you can find cinnamon chips and a lot more at:
I LOVE their site, great recipes and ingredients!
This looks fantastic!!!! Wow! All these flavors sound just so yummy.
Hi, I just found your blog in Tastespotting looking for something Banana to bake today. I think this might be it!! Yum!
If it turns out, can I share it on my blog too? =)
PB & Bananna, now that sounds like a fun combination!
I just tweeted/blogged about the muffins I made adapted from your recipe…
I wish they turned out looking as yummy inside like your bread! They were still yummy though. =)
I found the cinnamon chips at Meijer….But I think the peanut butter and chocolate was better.
I stumbled across your blog and think it’s fantastic, keep posting!
Im confused. I don’t see where you add the one cup peanut butter to this recipe??? I’ve read it a million times. Am I not seeing something???
It’s actually 1 cup peanut butter and chocolate CHIPS, not 1 cup peanut butter. Sorry for the confusion!
