Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Everyone has their comfort food. This is mine.

This past weekend I competed in a Synchronized Skating competition — my first ever. For 25 years I have been a singles skater, but this year I challenged myself to join an adult Synchro Team. They welcomed me with open arms and I have loved every minute. As I was preparing for our competition, I knew I had to pack a loaf of Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread in my skate bag to calm my nerves. It’s funny how something simple like this help prepare you for the big stage… It might not be a healthy option, but it sure helped!

    This looks absolutely delicious! Gonna give it a try myself. Wondering if you can use Almond Milk instead of cow’s milk? Have you ever used White Whole Wheat flour in baking? Always interested in recipes that can incorporate that flour! Thanks for all your yummy recipes!!
