Marbled Cake Banana Bread

A few weeks ago, my friend, Enid, posted on Facebook this incredible recipe that she found online. It is SO amazing that I have already made it three times and given it as gifts to many friends who have requested more. It is super healthy and absolutely delicious. It works as a special breakfast treat topped with a little peanut butter or as an after-school snack for your kiddos. You could even crumble a piece of the bread in a parfait jar, top it with a snack size cup of pudding, and squirt on a little reddi-whip for a lucious dessert. Enjoy my friends!!

You are prayed for daily and loved dearly by your Heavenly Father!!

"Open your mouth and taste, open your eyes and see— how good God is. Blessed are you who run to him."

Marbled Cake Banana Bread Recipe


1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup low-fat yogurt (I used 1 (6 oz) cup of yoplait fat-free vanilla)
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups mashed ripe banana (about 2-3 bananas)
1/2 cup egg substitute or 2 large eggs
Cooking spray (Bakers Joy)


1. Preheat oven to 350°.
2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt with a whisk.
3. Place sugar and butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended (about 2 minute). Add banana, vanilla, eggs or egg substitute, and yogurt; beat until blended. Add flour mixture; mix until just moist.
4. Place chocolate chips in a medium microwave-safe bowl, and microwave at HIGH 1 minute or until almost melted, stirring until smooth. Cool slightly.
5. Add 1 cup batter to chocolate, stirring until well combined. Spoon chocolate batter alternately with plain batter into an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. You can also use four mini loaf pans. Swirl batters together using a knife.
6. Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack; remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.
