Peanut Butter + Cocoa Nib Banana Bread

February 23, 2012

Glad I found out it was National Banana Bread Day!  I have been waiting to share this Peanut Butter + Cocoa Nib Banana Bread recipe with you!  I can’t get enough of cocoa nibs.  They add such a delicious cocoa nutty layer to whatever you put them in!  

This is a super simple recipe.  Start by preheating your oven and greasing + flouring a 9×5 pan.

Mix your dry and wet ingredients.

Fold them together with a spatula.

Pour into your pan!

Bake and slice!

Look at how nutty and delicious this is!

Enjoy with some coffee and a home decor magazine!

Happy National Banana Bread Day SaucyPants!
