Healthy marbled banana bread

Healthy marbled banana bread

Nonstick cooking spray, ¾ cup all purpose flour, 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, 2 medium ripe bananas, 2/3 cup sugar. ¼ cup canola oil, 2 eggs, 2/4 cup white whole wheat flour, 1 and ½ teaspoons baking powder, ½ teaspoon baking soda, ½ teaspoon kosher salt, ½ cup butter milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and lightly mist a 9-by-5-inch metal loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray and dust well with all-purpose flour to cover the pan completely, tapping out the excess. Now put the chocolate in a bowl and place it in a microwave on high in 30-second intervals, stirring, until melted and smooth, 1 minute to 1 minute 30 seconds. Keep it aside to cool slightly while you prepare the batter.

Mix bananas and sugar in a large bowl and mash with a potato masher or fork until mostly smooth with just a few small pieces of banana left. Add some oil and eggs and stir until combined. Mix in both flours,  the baking powder, baking soda and salt with the help of spatula and stir in the buttermilk and vanilla.

Stir 1 cup batter into the melted chocolate. Fill the loaf pan with half the banana batter and then half the chocolate batter. Repeat the layers and gently swirl together using a spoon or knife. Bake until golden brown on top and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Cool in the pan 15 minutes, and then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Serve warm or at room temperature. Cook's Note: To prepare your loaf pan for baking, you can also use a nonstick spray with flour already in it. Flouring the pan helps the bread rise well and prevents any collapse after it comes out of the oven.
