  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a 10cm x 20cm (base measurement) loaf pan and line the base and 2 long sides with baking paper, allowing sides to overhang. Combine the flour and sugar in a large bowl. Whisk the buttermilk, egg and banana in a bowl. Add to flour mixture with the oil. Stir to combine.
  2. Step 2

    Spread one-third of the banana mixture over the base of the prepared pan. Top with one-third of the peanut butter with some choc chips. Continue layering with remaining banana mixture, peanut butter and choc chips. Use a round-bladed knife to gently marble. Sprinkle with choc chips.

  3. Step 3

    Bake for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted in centre comes out clean. Set aside in pan for 5 mins to cool slightly before transferring to a wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature with extra peanut butter.
