What a great combination of flavors, bananas, chocolate and peanut butter. Best banana bread I have ever had. Love the idea using peanut butter cups as it add just the right balance without having to figure a thing out! When I was growing up I loved chocolate covered bananas. I still do. I also loved bananas in my peanut butter sandwich, what a perfect treat this is!
