  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup mashed bananas
  • 1/4 cup vanilla flavoured sweetened yogurt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup peanuts chopped
  • 1-1/2 cups chocolate chips divided


  • Preheat oven to 350 and prepare a 8-12 baking tin.
  • Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda in a small bowl.
  • In a large bowl, mash bananna and then beat in peanut better and yogurt until smooth. Beat in the egg until completely incorporated. Gradually add in dry ingredients, mix until just combined. Add 1/2 cup of chocolate chips and chopped peanuts and mix gently so that they are evenly distributed.
  • Pour into prepared baking tin, spreading cake batter out to reach the sides. It will be a very thin cake.
  • Bake 18-20 minutes or until cake is lightly browned around the edges and springy on top. Remove from the oven and immediately sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Let the chips sit for a few minutes, they will soften and melt. The use an offset spatula to spread the chocolate. Allow to cool completely before cutting into small squares. Will keep refridgerated in an air-tight container for several days.
