Did you see what I did there? I’m like Russell Crowe in A Beautiful Mind or Matt Damon in Good Will Hunting. No wait, wrong gender…. Ok, I’m like Julia Roberts in Erin Brockovich. Wow, still not quite right… Can we get back to the bread?
If peanut butter and banana go well together, and banana and chocolate go well together and chocolate and peanut butter go well together then you have a venn diagram with peanut butter banana chocolate chip bread smack in the middle (see, I told you my math skills are shaky, but my logic skills are hot).
Peanut butter is the dominant flavor in this bread. The banana is just a hint and you don’t want to go crazy on the chocolate chips or your bread will either a)sink or b)stick to the pan. It is a very moist bread, almost mushy, but not in a bad way. Like the perfect romantic comedy! How moist it is depends on how large the bananas are that you use.
