Lately, I’ve been on a Banana Bread craze. I can’t get enough of the fluffy and soft texture and banana and maple syrup sweetened taste. And while I love a simple Banana Bread, this Marbled Banana Bread takes the whole nana-bread-thing to the next level.

The best part is, that it’s hardly any work to make chocolate swirls, just add 3/4 of the banana bread batter into the loaf pan, then add cocoa powder, chocolate chips and a bit more rice milk to the last 1/4 of the batter, add it to the loaf pan and swirl it around. No need for an extra bowl or anything! Bake it in the oven until perfectly golden on top, check the inside with a wooden stick and off you go into banana paradise!

Warm slices of Banana Bread fresh out of the oven are the best. thing. ever.
