Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread

Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread

This Banana Chocolate Swirl Bread is super moist banana bread with chocolate swirls, simple to make, and a real decadent treat.


  • 2 eggs
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup of vegetable oil
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ⅓ cup low-fat buttermilk
  • ½ cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1½ cups mashed ripe banana (about 3 bananas)
  • Cooking spray
  • Additional mini chocolate chips, for topping (optional)


First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8½ x 4¼-inch loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside.

Then, in a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.

In a large bowl, beat sugar and oil over medium heat until blended (about 1 minute). Add the banana, egg, buttermilk, and vanilla and beat until blended.

Stir the flour mixture into the banana mixture, gently stirring the dough until just damp.

Place chocolate chips in a medium microwave-safe bowl for 1 minute (on high power) or until almost melted. Cook in the microwave for an additional 30 seconds, if necessary. Stir until smooth and let cool slightly.

Add 1 cup of chocolate batter, stirring until combined.

Place the dough in the prepared bread pan, alternating the natural dough and the chocolate dough. Stir the pasta together with a knife. Sprinkle top with additional chocolate chips, if desired.

Bake for 1 hour and 10 to 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack and remove from pan on a wire rack to cool completely.

Happy Cooking Time.
