Vegan Marbled Banana Bread

Yum yum yum ! Banana bread is my favorite treat, especially with chocolate. OMG !


You’ll Need:
  • 3 medium very ripe bananas
  • 3/4 cup raw sugar, regular sugar or coconut sugar
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil of choice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup plain, non-dairy milk (I used rice milk)
  • 1& 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 6 tbsp hot water divided
  • 1/3 cup mini dairy-free chocolate chips
Let’s Get Baking:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F/ 180 C. Grease loaf pan with vegan butter, spray oil or however you prefer.
  2. Start by mashing bananas in a medium sized mixing bowl. Add sugar, vanilla, non-dairy milk and oil. Cream together until smooth, lumps are ok. Add flour, salt, baking soda and stir until just combined.
  3. Separate about 1 cup of dough into a small bowl. Add 3 tbsp of hot water (be careful!) and cocoa powder. Mix until smooth.
  4. Add additional 3 tbsp of hot water to regular dough. Mix until just combined.
  5. Grab the loaf pan. Alternate adding regular dough and chocolate dough, and swirl together using toothpick to create the marbled effect. Top with chocolate chips.
  6. Bake for 60 minutes or until tooth pick comes out clean, not gooey.
  7. Let cool for 30 minutes – 40 minutes before slicing. Can be stored in air tight container on counter for 3-4 days.
