Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Banana Bread

Here it is July 2nd and I’ve already got one {delicious} recipe baked and eaten!

Each month I want to complete at least one pinned recipe! Join me in this Pinterest food challenge by linking up in the comments and sharing what you’ve created! Let’s take some action, people!

This recipe was a bit impromptu. I went grocery shopping and picked up some bananas because Matt’s been on a health kick lately, and the same day Matt went to the grocery store to make me a lovely surprise dinner and while he was there he also got bananas. So basically we had a crap ton of bananas, and this recipe calls for three.

I followed the super easy recipe on this page but instead of an 8×4 pan I used a 9×5, and I’m glad I did because I think it would have overflowed otherwise.

As always, I placed all my ingredients to the right side of the bowl and moved them over to the left side as I used them to make sure I didn’t forget anything.

The recipe calls for things to be mixed into two separate bowls, then combine. Make sure when you combine it you leave it LUMPY because otherwise the bread will crumble when you cut it.

I baked it for 30 minutes uncovered at 350*, then 30 minutes covered with tinfoil at 325* and it came out moist and delicious.

In case the above link ever doesn’t work, here’s the recipe:


  • 3 very ripe bananas, mashed (mine were still a little lumpy and it was fine
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 8 oz bag of Reese’s Mini cups

How to Make

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Grease your loaf pan with butter or shortening.
  3. In a medium bowl whisk together your flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt, set aside.
  4. In a large bowl stir together your bananas, peanut butter, oil, egg and sugars.
  5. Pour your dry ingredients into your wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Batter will be lumpy. DO NOT OVER-STIR.
  6. Fold in your Reese’s Mini cups and spread batter into prepared pan.
  7. Bake for approx 1 hour or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. (30 minutes at 350* uncovered, 30 minutes at 325* covered)
  8. 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.

  1. Yum! I was going to make this for my dad for father’s day but didn’t get the chance.

  2. It looks yummy, and I do love Reese’s!!! I have seen so many Pintrest recipes that I want to try, but since we just moved in our new home, i’m more concentrated on getting walls painted and things organized than cooking. I definitely want to try and hop on the one Pintrest recipe a month kick with you. Once a month is definitely do-able. Thanks for sharing the recipe

    • Yeah- welcome aboard! haha. I thought once a month was easy enough to commit to, and then if I do more then one I feel awesome about myself. 🙂

      Also, ps, your purple office is looking really cute 🙂 It’s so hard not to do everything at once, I’m like that too- I work on every single room of the house at the exact same time.
