Marbled Chocolate Banana Bread

Marbled Chocolate Banana Bread

You all know by now that I love to bake with banana’s. So it can’t be a surprise that I have yet another wonderful recipe for you. And since I had posted a picture of my first marbled chocolate banana bread on Instagram a couple of months ago, I kept getting requests for the recipe. Well, finally, it’s here!

After a few extra test drives and some small adjustments, I’m quite satisfied with the end result: a chocolatey banana bread that’s not overly sweet, that’s super moist and extremely tasty. And on the healthy-ish side. Got nothing more to add, except… the recipe.

Ingredients

2 (over)ripe bananas

200 g Greek yogurt

2 eggs (large)

2 tsp vanilla extract

4 tbsp maple syrup

125 g whole wheat flour

100 g oat flour (ground oats)

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

2 tbsp cocoa powder

1 tbsp milk

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 160°C and grease and/or line a cake tin with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, mash the bananas.

Bake for about 40-45 minutes until a tooth pick inserted in the middle comes out clean (a few crumbs is fine).

Out comes a wonderful loaf of Marbled Chocolate Banana Bread. Doesn’t that look gorgeous?! Now let cool, slice and serve. Or eat straight from the oven, if you can’t wait, like me ;-).
