Reeses Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Reeses Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Makes 1 loaf.

Pinterest: Making banana bread that much better.  This won't replace my go-to banana breads: my long-time recipe and my "healthy" recipe, but it will definitely find its place in the rotation.
The original recipe calls for Mini Reese's Cups -- the ones you find near the chocolate chips in the baking aisle.  If you use my method, use the small foil-wrapped ones and cut each into four pieces.
Also, next time, I might reduce the oven to 325 halfway through and just extend the baking time if necessary.

3 very ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup oil
1 egg
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
8 oz bag of Reese’s Mini cups (Instead, I used 1 cup of quartered mini Reeses - the ones in the foil wrapping.  It's about 16 cut into fourths)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease your 8x4 loaf pan with butter or shortening.
In a medium bowl whisk together your flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt, set aside.
In a large bowl stir together your bananas, peanut butter, oil, egg and sugars.
Pour your dry ingredients into your wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Batter will be lumpy.
Fold in your Reese’s Mini cups and spread batter into prepared pan.
Bake for approx 1 hour or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then loosen the edges of the pan with a knife and remove from loaf pan, transferring bread to a cooling rack.
