Friends, do you ever get stuck saying the shoulda, woulda, coulda’s? You know, you wish you would have invited people over, you had the best pot of soup on the stove. Or I would have invited our neighbors, but our house isn’t quite “done” yet. Or, I could have gone to the party, but I was really tired and wanted to veg out with Netflix. (HA). Not that Netflix isn’t fun to veg out with, occasionally.

How about getting a loaf of this delicious Chocolate Hazelnut Peanut Butter Banana Bread baking in the oven and change your course today?

I was driving with my husband the other day and he made the statement: Babe, you’ve gotten a lot better with the shoulda woulda coulda’s.

Wow. A big compliment. Because over the years, my family has teased me about this.

But then, just last night, he caught me saying one again. Sigh …

These words can be debilitating. They can hinder our journey, relationships, they keep us stuck, and overall prevent us from being happier and most likely forging new friendships. They basically make you feel like a loser or that you are not good enough.

No time to waste your worry on the past, friends. With this new year, it’s time to forge forward!

Don’t be paralyzed or a procrastinator, don’t live with regrets, but instead move forward (it takes courage), and do things differently.

  1. This was good. Mine didn’t look like this though – no swirls. Also, I baked in a 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 loaf pan and it took about a hour. It was still very undercooked at 40-45 minutes.

  2. Looks like a nice change to the usual banana bread. Can you share how to make the swirls; I assume it’s the peanut butter thinned with something. And your loaf pan appears oversized in the photos. Is it a different size? I like the idea of a longer, narrower loaf. Makes nicer slices. Good reminder to shelf check ourselves on the woulda, coulda, shouldas……a real pitfall for most of us.

  3. This is dangerous, now I can’t think of anything else but making this gorgeous bread!

  4. Yum. Def. pinning this to make later. We’ve been working on having more people over again, we got out of it when life dramatically changed and turned life as we knew it upside down. It an be easy to dwell on the past but there’s no joy or growth in it, especially if it was painful. Learn, brush it off, heal, and keep moving forward.
