Vegan Banana Bread With Chocolate Marble
I am addicted – addicted to banana bread. Actually, I can’t imagine my life without banana bread (ok that might be “a bit” exaggerated, haha). Give me a piece of delicious vegan banana bread and I will be your friend. Just kidding, but if you like banana bread with chocolate as much as I do, you will LOVE this marbled banana bread recipe.
I made many different banana bread recipes in the past, but I was never 100% satisfied. It’s difficult if you can’t get a good gluten-free flour blend where you live, so you always have to experiment. But I really love how this chocolate banana bread turned out. The loaf is not only moist and chocolatey it is also:
- Refined sugar-free
- Low in fat
How To Make A Marbled Banana Bread?
It’s actually pretty easy to make a chocolate marbled loaf! All you need is a light batter and a chocolate batter, a loaf pan and two spoons. Drizzle some of the light batter into the loaf pan, then add some of the chocolate batter. Continue until no batter is left. It’s always a surprise to cut into the freshly baked loaf and to find out how the marble pattern turned out!
Enjoy this Marbled Chocolate Banana Bread With More Chocolate
Plain banana bread is delicious, no question, but marbled banana bread is even better if you like chocolate. After all, who doesn’t like chocolate? And because chocolate in the dough isn’t enough, I also like to put more chocolate on top of a thick slice, yummy! The chocolate spread is made from peanut flour (powdered peanut butter), cocoa powder, maple syrup, and water. Mix everything together and you end up with a super delicious chocolate spread. You can find the exact recipe for the chocolate spread here.

Marbled banana bread
- Put the dry ingredients (rice flour, tapioca flour, coconut flour, and baking soda + baking powder) in a big bowl and stir until there are no clumps.
- Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir with a spatula until the mixture is just combined.
- Split the batter into two bowls, so that you have about 1/3 of the batter in one bowl and 2/3 of the batter in the other bowl.
- Add the ingredients for the chocolate layer (cocoa powder, coconut sugar, coconut milk, coconut oil) to the bowl with 1/3 of the batter and mix with a whisk.
- Line a mold with parchment paper or grease it with a little bit of coconut oil. My mold measures 8 x 4 x 2.5 inches and preheat your oven to 390 degrees F (200 degrees C).
- For the marble effect/swirl, just drizzle a tsp of light batter into your mold, then with a different spoon drizzle a tsp of the chocolate batter on top of it, then again the light batter, etc until no batter is left.
- Bake in the oven for about 45-50 minutes (+/- 5 minutes). The cake is ready when a toothpick comes out almost clean (can still have some crumbs on it).
- Enjoy your marbled banana bread with a chocolate spread!
- You can use a different gluten-free flour blend, however, if you sub coconut flour for a different flour then you need to increase the amount of flour. Coconut flour is very absorbent, that's why you would have to use at least 1/2 a cup of a different flour instead of coconut flour. My gluten-free flour blend made the cake fluffy and resulted in great texture and I totally recommend it.
- The recipe makes one loaf which I cut into 10 pieces. Nutrition facts are for one piece.
