Chocolate Peanut Butter Bread

I am back. You may have noticed that I took a brief two week hiatus from blogging and Facebooking, as I was out of town and spending time with my family.

On Father’s Day last week my Papaw, who would’ve been 93 years old this week, peacefully passed away. He led a brilliant life. My Papaw (Ray) served in the United States Army from March 1942 to January 1946 and served in the Philippine Campaign. He was a 59-year member of American Legion Post No. 250, a 30-year member of the Honor Guard, and a member of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post No. 9107. He married my Grandma (Betty) in 1946; she died in 2005.

I am proud of my family. I know that Papaw would be proud of my blogging and skincare work, too. He would have especially loved trying all of my sweet treats. So, in his honor…here’s a sweet treat for you today.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bread

Make It:

  • Set oven at 375°F. Mix all dry ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and set aside.
  • Melt butter, set aside. In a food processor (or large bowl if you are using a lot of elbow grease), add eggs and beat. Add milk, cream cheese, melted butter, maple syrup, peanut butter, and the banana. Cream it all together in your food processor with the paddle attachment (or use some elbow grease in a large bowl).
  • Carefully pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and continue mixing in food processor until fully combined. Fold in blueberries with a spoon or spatula by hand. Scoop this semi-runny batter into your mini loaf pan. I love my mini loaf pan (much like this one)! You could use a muffin pan, too; I just love mini loaves for our family.
  • Bake for 25-30 min. (check for toothpick to come out clean/no batter).

I whipped these up quite quickly over the weekend when I initially wanted to make my Quinoa Carob Mini Loaves. We had overnight visitors and I thought that the loaves be a nice treat when they woke. I started gathering ingredients and realized that I had some cream cheese in the fridge, which I needed to use.

This is how a lot of my recipes come to fruition…out of what is actually in my fridge.

How do you create new recipes? Do you have a plan or a system, or do you just go with the flow?

Until next time…

  1. Good day! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?

    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

  2. I’m so sorry for your loss. I am sure your PawPaw would be proud of you, and I think this post is a lovely way to remember him.

    I like the blueberries in this Chocolate Peanut Butter bread. It’s lovely when something this tasty is wholesome too. Thank you for sharing this post with the Hearth and Soul hop.
