Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a large loaf pan with parchment paper. Set aside.

In a large bowl, mix together the slightly melted peanut butter, sugar, mashed bananas, olive oil, and eggs. After mixing, stir in cocoa, baking powder & soda, salt, and vanilla. Stir in flour last.

Pour into loaf pan and top with thinly sliced banana pieces. I used ½ a banana for this part. Bake for roughly 55 minutes, until a knife inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 20 minutes.

Once the loaf has cooled slightly, top with peanut butter. Melt in a microwave-safe bowl for 30 seconds, then stir. It should become creamy and slightly runny. Depending on your microwave, heat for an additional 15 seconds. Drizzle over loaf. Serve!
