Healthy Chocolate Marbled Banana Bread


Chocolate marbled banana bread — the classic banana bread with an elevated twist.  It’s the soft, fluffy, delicious banana bread you know and love with silky ribbons of dark chocolate laced throughout.  Sweetened only with bananas and made gluten-free, dairy-free, and paleo-friendly!




  1. Preheat oven to 350 F
  2. Melt the chocolate chips in a skillet over low heat or use the double boiler method (place chocolate chips in a small pot and position on top of a larger pot of simmering water. Stir continuously until melted). Set aside to cool

  3. In a bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt and set aside

  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the bananas, eggs, vanilla, coconut oil, and almond milk (you can use a hand-mixer here as well)

  5. Slowly fold in the flour mixture into the bowl with the eggs and stir until no flour clumps remain

  6. Spoon out 1 cup of the batter into a separate bowl and stir in the melted chocolate

  7. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper or grease with oil

  8. Pour about half of the non-chocolate batter into the pan. Then spread the chocolate batter on top, leaving about 3 Tbsp in the bowl. Pour in remaining non-chocolate batter then place 3 dollops of the chocolate batter on top

  9. With a knife, draw 3 large S’s in the batter to create a swirl (a little goes a long way here, don’t get too crazy)

  10. Bake for 45 - 50 minutes until you can insert a toothpick into the middle and it comes out clean

  11. Store in an airtight container on the counter for up to a week or up to 10 days in the fridge
