White Chocolate Butterscotch Banana Bread

White Chocoolate Butterscotch Banana Bread

It’s been a snow day kind of week.

The other day, my kids and I spent our first snow day of the season together. I’m always the parent on duty for snow days since I’m a teacher, so we do snuggly activities during the day. We watch movies, drink lukewarm chocolate (nothing hot for my babies!), dabble in arts and crafts, and of course, we bake.

This time, I happened to have some overripe bananas on the countertop, which could only mean one thing. In a world with bananas and children, there must be banana bread.

They went to town with the masher, let me tell you. Even my littlest, who is a miniature person. She decimated those bananas until they were perfect. I didn’t have to do any additional mashing. And of course, the kids particularly enjoyed pouring in the white chocolate and butterscotch chips, because they got a percentage of the mix-ins. I always let them munch when we bake.

This banana bread takes a while in the oven because you need to use a large loaf pan (there’s a ton of batter), so while it baked, we watched Shrek. Life is full of pleasures, but one of them has to be cuddling with your kids on the couch while the house fills up with the scent of freshly baked banana bread.

Then, of course, came the best part. I cut the banana bread into thick slices and we all ate it together for snack while we watched the snowflakes fall. My son wanted to spread peanut butter on his slice, and heck, he’s brilliant. It was delicious!

Snow days are meant for blankets and tea, for being dreamy, for hanging out without watching a clock. And they’re meant for banana bread. Don’t forget to slice it nice and thick!


White Chocolate Butterscotch Banana Bread


1 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
2 eggs
3 ripe bananas
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup butterscotch chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Coat a large loaf pan with cooking spray.
  2. Cream the sugar and butter in the bowl of a stand mixer until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing after each addition.
  3. In a separate bowl, mash the bananas until smooth. Add the milk and cinnamon, stirring until incorporated.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  5. Add the banana mixture to the stand mixer and beat until combined. Add dry ingredients, mixing until flour is incorporated.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake 60-70 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  7. Cool. Cut into slices and serve. You can even spread on some peanut butter, as my son recommends!




I fulfill many roles in life: wife, mother, teacher, everlasting learner. This site is dedicated to one role that expresses my creativity in ways that I find consistently challenging and rewarding: baker. Inventing new ways to enhance food, especially if that food involves chocolate or peanut butter (or both!), is a passion of mine. I look forward to sharing my ideas with you.
