Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Bread

I was feeling inspired last week to bake and after searching on Pinterest I found this recipe for Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Bread. It literally combines all of my favorites so I figured it must be good! It turned out delicious and I wanted to share it with all of you!

1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 egg
2 very ripe bananas
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray bread pan with nonstick cooking spray
2. In a large bowl, whisk all dry ingredients together: flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, granulated sugar and brown sugar

3. Pour in the remaining ingredients, except the chocolate chips. Mix until just combined and then add the chocolate chips

4. Pour into bread pan and bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean

*sidenote, I actually made this twice so that I could have two loaves of bread, the recipe only filled one of my bread pans

a strong, innate desire to rove or travel about

Y'all, I am having serious wanderlust right now. Maybe it's because it is 79 degrees and sunny outside or maybe it's just because this time last year I was boarding a plane heading for a week in the British Virgin Islands. We really didn't have a Winter this year and I may be jinxing myself but I am SO ready for Spring and Summer. I can't wait to wear sundresses and sandals and shorts and tank tops. I especially can't wait to have a little color on my skin because this pale situation is a tad out of control. At this very moment I am seriously wishing I was on an island laying on the beach with a drink, a book, and good company. And if I were in such a place, here are a few items I would have with me:

Roxy Beach Blanket

L'Space bikini

JCrew summer straw hat

Is anyone else suffering from Wanderlust at the moment?
