Ready In:
1hr 15mins
2 loaves




  • Preheat oven to 350*.
  • Stir together flour, Splenda, brown sugar, baking powder and cinnamon.
  • In another bowl, combine bananas, milk, peanut butter, oil, vanilla, egg white and applesauce.
  • Add the two mixtures together and stir until combined. There should be no lumps.
  • Gently stir in mini chocolate chips.
  • If making loaves, pour batter evenly into two sprayed 8"x 4" loaf pans. If making muffins, pour batter evenly into sprayed muffin tins, or use cupcake liners. Depending on size of tins, you will have enough batter for 15-18 muffins. If you'd like to make just one loaf of bread, you will have enough extra batter to make 6 large muffins.
  • Bake bread for 50-55 minutes. Bake muffins for 20-25 minutes. Use toothpick test to check for doneness.
  • Dust with powdered sugar when cool.

  1. This is a good muffin recipe. I really liked the flavors of the bananas and chocolate chips, but think I woud have prefered to leave out the peanut butter. The muffins were moist and had more of a spongy texture instead of a cakey texture. A very good recipe to experiment with. Made for RSC #12.
  2. What a great, versatile little recipe. I baked five mini loaves out of this, which took about 40 minutes bake time in my oven. They were very pretty, and tasted great. I found it helpful to use a food processor to get the liquids incorporated with the PB and banana.
  3. The combination was fantastic, especially the chocolate chips with the bananas. I found it moist on the inside which I just love for my baked goods.
  4. Very good. DD and DH ate these up! I liked the banana flavor and the chocolate chips--they loved the peanut butter. This is a winner. Made for RSC #12.
  5. Loved the combo of flavors. Splenda flavor wasn't overabundant (which is nice). Used white chocolate chips and chunky peanut butter with great results. However the outside was cooked way before the inside. We enjoyed the outside pieces (before they were burned) and had to pitch the rest. Made for RSC #12. GOOD JOB ON THIS ONE!


I am... ~a mother of 2 kids (19 and 22) who are extremely picky eaters. The mere mention of "healthy" sends them running in the opposite direction. They prefer the creamy, cheesy, fried stuff that they weren't brought up on! ~a wife of a wonderful man who fights an expanding waistline and will lovingly eat most anything I set before him. Everything is 5 stars to him. :) He's the easiest customer a cook could ask for! ~a teacher who tends to reach for comfort foods to relieve stress. I am a middle school reading specialist. The miracles I see on a daily basis keeps me going! But it's also stressful, so keep me away from the cookie jar! I really have to fight off the sugary, fat-laden stuff that has no worth beyond the momentary comfort in my mouth. ~and I'm also a daughter who was brought up on home cooked meals back when calories meant nothing and taste was everything! That is an idea built into my system that's hard to shake! My mother raised 8 kids (I'm #7) on her home-cooking and I always teased her that she didn't raise a single skinny kid! I luckily inherited her great love of cooking and baking. (I miss you Mom!) ~finally, I'm "mom" to the best Bichon in the world. He is Quincy, our kid in a dogsuit.
