Salted Peanuts & Chocolate Banana Bread

I must confess I really like banana bread. Indeed, this is my fourth recipe inspired by the classic banana bread recipe.

This time, I added peanut butter and chocolate chips. Peanut butter, banana and chocolate are a perfect match. Moreover, the topping made of salted roasted peanuts brings that crunchy and salty contrast, which gives this cake a distinctive character.
