Chocolate Marbled Banana Bread

I’ve mentioned before that we have banana issues in my house. I don’t eat them unless they are buried under a pile of ice cream and hot fudge sauce. Joe likes them and will eat several during the week when the mood strikes, but it’s random and unpredictable. If I don’t buy bananas for a week because I’m sick of them not getting eaten, he whines about how much he wants one. It’s a vicious cycle, so I keep buying bananas every week and try to find ways to use them when they turn brown. Y’all as much as I love Monkey Squares, I can’t eat them every week, my yoga pants can only take so much.

My obsession with bread has been ongoing so I’ve been checking out banana bread recipes on Pinterest to see what I could find. When I ran across this Chocolate Marbled Banana Bread, I was so excited that I ran to the kitchen and started mashing bananas.

I switched out the greek yogurt in the banana bread batter for sour cream, I’m not a fan of greek yogurt so I don’t buy it. Sour cream seems to be a perfect substitution and has worked out perfect every time.

The part I was most excited about was that rather than cocoa powder, this recipe uses chocolate chips melted down with butter for the marbling layer.

I melted down the chocolate while I got the batter together and then split it and added the chocolate to a small portion of it.

I had my loaf pans ready to go, so I split the main better between the two of them and then added the chocolate mixture over the top.

I wasn’t sure exactly how much I should stir the batters together so I didn’t get a great marbled effect. The chocolate stayed mostly on the top so it was more like a chocolate topped banana bread. The texture was a little less moist for that layer but it would have been perfect if it was marbled in like it should have been. Y’all this was incredible and I have been glaring at the bananas waiting for them to get brown enough to try this again. Of course, Joe has decided that this is one of the weeks he likes bananas so I’ve been glaring at him any time he gets near them.

I completely forgot about the gananche by the time it was done, I was so ready to dig in. Joe wasn’t home yet so I ate way too much and made a huge mess since no one was there to watch me cram it in my face. Y’all this was amazing, I know your going to love it and I can’t wait to hear how it turns out for you.

    Bananas freeze beautifully. You can peel them and freeze them whole and pull out however many you need for a recipe. If you freeze them on a tray separately, you can put them all in one freezer bag once frozen and they won’t stick together. A little defrosting and they can be mashed up and used in your recipes. If your recipes are pretty constant and always use “about” 3 bananas, you can pre-mash before freezing for a shorter defrost time. I always flatten my freezer bags full of banana so they freeze and defrost quickly. If you always have a couple of bags in the freezer, you don’t have to wait for fresh bananas to get ripe enough.

      I keep trying to convince myself to freeze them but I have this horrible fear that pretty soon my freezer would be filled with nothing but bananas! I hope you love the bread, it is so good.
