Buttermilk Banana Bread with Chocolate Chunks

Sweet enough for dessert, but acceptable for breakfast—this Buttermilk Banana Bread with Chocolate Chunks (and a big schmear of peanut butter) is all that I need.

Fall officially starts this week—and that means fall baking is now in high gear. I know these Mini Halloween Pumpkin Spice Cakes are adorable, but let’s get back to basics with a classic banana bread recipe.

But first, we need to talk about this peanut butter thing. Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter Exists—and it’s amazing. Especially on this bread. Peanut Butter & Co. sent me a jar—and it’s good. Really good. Like PSL got cozy with a jar of creamy pb and made a new delicious spread.

I also need to mention that this bread is perfect for the two items that are most often left over…

Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

Homemade pizza is one of my favorite things to make—and whole wheat pizza dough just made it better.


Banana Bread With Cinnamon Glaze

The key to getting the most banana flavor in banana bread or banana muffins is to use overly ripe bananas – nearing on turning black. The more ripe the bananas, the sweeter they become, making your breads and muffins that much better. For this banana bread with cinnamon glaze, I used very ripe bananas and lots of pecans for added crunch and nutty flavor.

The cinnamon glaze drizzled over the top adds a decadent twist to the classic version and echoes the warm spices that are mixed in with the batter.

If you find your bananas are turning overly ripe before you have a chance to bake, try my simple tip.
Make Ahead Frozen Bananas for Banana Bread:
Peel the bananas and place them in a freezer proof plastic bag. Freeze until you’re ready to use them. Thaw first and you are good to go! I also use them for smoothies instead of ice.

Texas Chili and Cornbread

Was anyone else secretly waiting for Thanksgiving shenanigans to be over so you could make Texas Chili and cornbread like on Top Chef last week? Don’t get me wrong, I loved the turkey and gravy, but ever since I saw the episode last Wednesday I have been excited to make chili.

This chili is full of tender beef brisket, hearty butternut squash, spicy green chilies, and smothered cheese. This Texas chili and cornbread is perfect for the big game or when you want something warm and comforting.
