From Cookies and Cups
  • 3 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • ¼ cup Canola or Vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 ½ cups of all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 8 oz bag of Reese’s Mini cups

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a loaf pan with butter or shortening.
In medium bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, stir together bananas, peanut butter, oil, egg and sugars. Pour your dry ingredients into your wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Batter will be lumpy – do not over stir.
Fold in 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.
