Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Bread

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Bread

Oh wow, is it Wednesday already?! My blog has been seriously neglected.  E and M just left.  And I’m pooped! It has been quite an exhausting weekend.  We were out all day Sunday and Monday.  Mostly outdoor stuff —poolside barbecue and picnic barbecue.  And I’m not into any of those things.  There’s one thing you need to know about me.  I don’t like getting dirty and I don’t like outdoorsy activities.  OK, that’s two things.  Why? It’s mainly because of the insects.  I attract them.  They love to eat me alive.  Plus, I do not like dining with any bugs around.  Who does? Aside from that, it was great seeing my nieces, E and M!

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Bread

I was itching for something sweet with peanut butter and I came across this Sweet Peanut Butter Bread recipe from Reeni of Cinnamon Spice & Everything Nice.  This recipe was adapted to remedy my peanut butter craving.  Oh, and I was also craving something with chocolate as well.  This bread was perfectly delicious.  Dense, peanut butter-y and chocolate-y.  And one slice will do ya.  I tried having multiple slices and got sick from it, ha! So don’t get overly greedy like I did.  You won’t be able to enjoy it.  And trust me, you’ll want to savor every bite.  Happy Wednesday!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup of dark muscovado sugar
  • 1/4 cup of unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup of creamy peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup of milk (I used 2%)
  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of dark chocolate chips + extra to sprinkle on top

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Bread

Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease a 9-inch loaf pan.

Using a stand or electric mixer (or mix by hand) cream butter and sugars.  Add peanut butter then egg and vanilla.  Continue to beat until combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl.  Then add yogurt and milk and beat until smooth and creamy.  Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Mix until just moistened.  Batter will be thick.  Fold in chocolate chips.

Pour batter into the prepared pan and spread it evenly with a spatula.  Sprinkle the extra chocolate chips on top.  Bake for 55-60 minutes or until toothpick/tester inserted into the center comes out with a few crumbs attached.  Let the bread cool completely before cutting into the pan.

Note: You might want to loosely tent the bread with aluminum foil 40-45 minutes into baking, as it can brown quickly.

    Hehe, I seem to attract the bugs too which can take the fun out of the outdoors sometimes. It’s always great when family visits but can definitely be a little bit exhausting:) This bread looks and sounds amazing Anne! I love peanut butter and dark chocolate together and can imagine how fantastic this tastes. Love that you added Greek yogurt too, looks so moist and delicious!

    Ha! I’m really with you, Anne. I’m totally an indoor girl – far prefer the comforts of my kitchen (and the sofa with a good book)! I got 4 mosquito bites in a matter of minutes the other day. They quickly swelled and I’m still itchy 4 days later. sigh… On to happier things, this bread is genius. I love that one slice will satisfy a person. Hope the rest of your week is nice and relaxing.

    It’s so nice to hear you had a great visiting time! I usually don’t like to be outside when the (night time) bugs come out.
    You make everything look so appetizing…and this bread is looking very tempting right now! Pinning! (Besides, I’m a pb lover!)

    Wow, this looks amazing! I love pretty much anything with peanut butter, but I don’t think I’ve actually had peanut butter bread yet. Definitely going to try out this recipe! Thanks for sharing it 😀

    I love hiking, but only when it’s cold out (i.e. no mosquitoes). I’m the same as you…skeeters LOVE me, and I’m highly allergic. It totally ruins summer for me. And I’m with you on eating outside- too many ants and gnats and dirt. Give me a picnic table in a screened-in porch and I’d be a happy girl :) This bread looks so yummy!!!

    Oh my goodness this bread! Dark chocolate and peanut butter. Such a good combination! I love the outdoors but I HATE bugs. My husband constantly makes fun of me since I do this “dance” every time one comes near me … i.e. jump and swat my hands like crazy to get it away lol

    The outdoors is one of a few things that Anne and I don’t share the same joy for. Luckily, we have more in common than not. I grew up camping and fishing and just getting downright dirty. But if you made me choose between camping and a plate of these babies, the bread would win. The dark chocolate was perfect with the peanut butter, and the bread wasn’t overly sweet.

    A cup of peanut butter AND a cup of dark chocolate chips! This bread would vanish around here. Good thing nobody but the dog would witness it — and he’s notoriously silent about such things. Thanks for sharing another great recipe, Anne.

    I made this super recently and couldn’t stop eating! LOL. So good especially if using really rich dark dark chocolate chips.

  10. says

    Those chocolate bits look amazing in the bread! I don’t like insect either – have you ever tried a citronella cream to stop them biting you?

    So you have that problem to? Every time I go outside the mosquitos or noseums attack me. I mean attack. I can be walking and they will attack me. It stinks!

    Well, I think you did good by choosing a peanut butter bread to bake. You just can’t go wrong with peanut butter. Yum!

    Thank-you for making the bread Anne! I LOVE it – especially with chocolate chips! I might have to bake up a loaf this week. You and I are one and the same – I hate eating outside – cause of the heat and the bugs!
