directions

  • In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until crumbly, about 2 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the bananas, yogurt, and vanilla. Combine the flours, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon; gradually beat into the butter mixture. Stir in peanut butter chips.
  • Remove 1 cup batter to a small bowl; stir in chocolate until well blended. Pour half of remaining batter into a 9x5 inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray; top with half of the chocolate batter. Repeat layers. Cut through batter with a knife to swirl.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.

    This is one delicious loaf! Used a little less sugar (maybe 3/4 cup) and used cinammon chips instead of peanut butter. Baked it for about 55 minutes and could have baked it a bit more as the center of the loaf was underbaked. Thanks Shelby! :)

<p>I've loved cooking and baking for as long as I can remember. I've really gotten into it more in the past few years. It's just my husband and I so I can't do all the cooking I would like though. <br /><br /><br /><a title=PaperBackSwap.com - Book Club to Swap, Trade &amp; Exchange Books for Free. href=http://www.paperbackswap.com/index.php?n=12&amp;r_by=Shelby><img src=http://www.paperbackswap.com/images/icons/weblog_icon_600_120_2.gif alt=PaperBackSwap.com - Book Club to Swap, Trade &amp; Exchange Books for Free. width=600 height=120 /></a> <br /><br />I love to watch tv &amp; movies, go out with friends, read, write letters and spend time with my husband &amp; family. I have some of the most amazing friends a girl could ask for, and a family that is just as great. <br /><br />All of my recipes posted are either ones I've tried or ones that I want to try. I don't post things that I don't think I'd like. (However, the list of foods I don't like keeps getting smaller and smaller thanks to this site!) <br /><br />I love to play the tag games here, as you can see from the banners below. I've really enjoyed Photo Tag. It's been fun to see how my photos have slowly gotten better and my techniques have improved. <br /><br />I'm so thankful I found this site. I have met so many amazing people that have become a part of my life. Hopefully someday I can meet some of you in person! <br /><br />Thanks to all who have given me all of the great reviews and photos on my recipes. It's always so exciting to log in and see I have Z-mail &amp; reviews. <br /><br /><br /><a href=http://s259.photobucket.com/albums/hh281/ShelbyNeuzil/?action=view?t=ShelbyAMBadge.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/hh281/ShelbyNeuzil/ShelbyAMBadge.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><img src=http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg alt= /> <br /><br /><a href=http://s161.photobucket.com/albums/t237/akplongmeadow/?action=view?t=tag.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t237/akplongmeadow/tag.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><br /><img src=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v726/annacia/pt-shutterbug-banner-1.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a254/Sharon123/Copyoftag300-banner.jpg border=0 alt=Susie's Banner for Newest Zaar Tag /> <br /><img src=http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i25/bayhill/footballpool-1.jpg alt= /> <br /><br /><a href=http://s6.photobucket.com/albums/y235/tjschul/?action=view?t=123hitwonders.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y235/tjschul/123hitwonders.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><img src=http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj81/HokiesLady65/1234HitAMPage_Size1.png alt= /> <br /><br /><a href=http://s259.photobucket.com/albums/hh281/ShelbyNeuzil/?action=view?t=Elves-appreciationSTICKER.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/hh281/ShelbyNeuzil/Elves-appreciationSTICKER.jpg border=0 alt=Elves Cook-A-Thon /></a> <br /><br /><br /><img src=http://img225.imageshack.us/img225/4902/41213577264b44m3kh4.png alt= /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b367/chefpaulag/banners/cookathonLorac-1.jpg alt= /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u208/diner_photos/lazymecookathon.jpg alt= /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><a href=http://s259.photobucket.com/albums/hh281/ShelbyNeuzil/?action=view?t=PRMRcopy.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/hh281/ShelbyNeuzil/PRMRcopy.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><a href=http://s259.photobucket.com/albums/hh281/ShelbyNeuzil/?action=view?t=TasteofYellowSTICKER.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/hh281/ShelbyNeuzil/TasteofYellowSTICKER.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/CookathonforKarensticker.jpg alt= /> <br /><br /><br /><img src=http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/AM%20Banners/KBparticipation.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></p> <p><a style=height: 20px; width: 40px; position: absolute; opacity: 0.85; z-index: 8675309; display: none; cursor: pointer; border: medium none; background-image: url(&quot;data; href=http://www.pinterest.com/pin/create/extension/></a></p>
