Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake Stuffed Banana Bread- the BEST banana bread I've ever had, and that filling is to-die-for!

And just like that, we went from summer to back-to-school.

Last week it was full-on vacation for us, with days spent on the beach and nights on the boardwalk.  So much fun.  So relaxing.  So great to soak up sunshine and bliss out with a mind free from worry or care.  We couldn’t have asked for a nicer week and I feel so blessed and thankful to have been able to share that time with my family.

Now, we’ve less than a week until school starts and a mile-long list of things to accomplish before that.  Talk about a complete turnaround!

But I’m totally ok with it.  I’m ready.  As much as I hate to say goodbye to summer, I always welcome the structure and activity that comes with back-to-school.  My kids have no day camp this week and by the time it’s over, they’ll be itching to see their friends and teachers again.

And I’m itching to get back to baking warm, comforting treats.

Banana bread is such a classic and I love baking up a tall loaf, especially when the weather is a little cooler.  It’s so easy to make and it makes the whole house smell amazing.  My kids get into it too- they love it toasted for breakfast or with a tall glass of milk as an after school snack.

For this recipe, my littlest joined me in the kitchen.  I gave him the bananas to peel and mash while I measured out the other ingredients.  He looked so proud to stir it all together and I caught him peeking through the oven window as it baked, and stealthily picking off a corner of the crunchy crust to nibble on as it was cooling.

We decided to stuff this banana bread with the most amazing creamy cheesecake filling, spiked with chocolate and peanut butter.  I can’t think of anything else that tastes better with banana than chocolate and peanut butter.  Seriously!  It’s one of the best things ever.

And that thick ribbon of nutty, chocolate-y sweet cream cheese keeps the bread so moist.  There is no need to butter this banana bread!  You’ve got everything you could ever want in one slice, and then some!

I hope you’ll treat your loved ones to a loaf of chocolate peanut butter cheesecake stuffed banana bread in the next week or so- it’ll make this fun and special time even more so!
