Craving chocolate (seriously, who isn’t?!), yet not ready for the extra calories after the candy-smothered Halloween events? Then let me welcome you to my solution. Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread. Sure, it’s made with chocolate chips, but it also comes laced with fruit, whole grains and chia seeds to help shove aside any guilt that may be associated with said chocolate.
This bread is truly one to savor. As the weather slowly transforms into a blustery, winter-esque scene, sit back as your home becomes engrossed with the sweet aroma of a freshly baked sweet bread (that smell – LOVE it!).
Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread
Adding in the chocolate swirl is the highlight of this recipe for my little ones! Just be careful not to let them over stir as of course, that beautiful swirl will disappear just as quickly as it was created!
I chose to add the banana and chocolate batter in layers, but you could try it with the chocolate solo on top or as polkadots for a different spin.
