But I really REALLY love portable/no mess banana bread with peanut butter and chocolate.

I can imagine myself trying to eat a piece of banana bread with peanut butter and chocolate on top while driving and crumbs are getting everywhere.

So, I made things a little less crummy and a little more portable – voilà – peanut butter chocolate swirl banana bread muffins!

No way that peanut butter is getting all over my face now.

And, I want to point out I didn’t make mini muffins, which are my favorite. This might be a first on the blog, regular sized muffins.

    • Hi Leila, I am not sure how exactly it would turn out, or how big the loaf would turn out. I tend to be more adventurous and would probably try it :)

  14. hey I made this today for friends in the loaf pan and it turned out great. The only thing it needed was a bit more sugar in the batter part, rather than that it was great
