Easter is this weekend, which means families all over will be getting together, having breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner, and enjoying each other’s company. If you’re planning to get together with your family or friends for the holiday this weekend, you might just be expected to bring something to contribute to the gathering. You might be worrying about what to bring, or you might be searching to find something easy that will please most people.
Good news – I have the answer! You should bring this Chocolate Chip Peanut Banana Bread. You’ll be the hero of any gathering you bring this to, and the best part is that you don’t have to put a lot of time into making this. (I feel like I say that for every recipe I post, but what can I say – I like easy stuff!) This bread is not overly sweet, which means that you can get away with having it for breakfast, but the chocolate also makes it feel like a dessert. Win-win!
Make this if: You need to bring something to a get together and you want everyone to love you.
