Double chocolate peanut butter banana loaf

August 18, 2016

This one is a keeper for sure!! I love baking up loaves, especially now the summer is slowly coming to and end and fall will be on the way. Chocolate and peanut butter always go hand in hand in my kitchen and this loaf does not disappoint! The drizzled peanut butter topping is just like the icing on cake to finish it off ๐Ÿ™‚ Makes 10 slices at only 4 smart points each.

    Would it work to freeze the slices in ziplock bags?

      Yes the loaf should freeze well ๐Ÿ™‚

    If the 2 bananas are 4 sps, and this recipe serves 10, then I suppose each serving would be 4.4 or rounded to 5 to be safe. I think I will make this and divide it up and freeze the remainder so that I don’t overdo. Thank you for all your wonderful recipes.

      I’m not sure what your asking, the banana’s have no point value in the recipe , or do you mean 2 servings is more than 8 points?

    If I put this in small muffin tins for 10 muffins (l don’t cut evenly!), how long should they bake?

      Hi, you mean regular sized muffins right? For mini muffins you will get way more than 10, reg sized muffins I would try 20 minutes and go from there
