PBBC=Peanut Butter Chip+Banana+Chocolate Chip Bread

Looking for the perfect banana bread recipe?  This bread is moist and delicious with loads of banana flavor!  The thick, sweet batter has just a hint of cinnamon that complements the finished bread perfectly.  You can add chopped pecans, walnuts or peanuts if you like.  Sometimes I add chocolate chips.  Sometimes I add peanut butter chips.  Tonight I felt like adding chocolate AND peanut butter chips.  It's a faultless base recipe that allows lots of room for creativity.  Best of all?  You can enjoy it plain with a glass of milk.  Try spreading on a little peanut butter if you're feeling extra DEVILISH!
Banana Bread!  Get ready to go monkeys!
Cream together the butter and sugar.
Add eggs to the creamed mixture, and mix well.

Pour batter into a greased loaf pan.
Bake until golden about 1 hour.
Slice and serve.  Yum!
