Marbled Chocolate- Banana Bread

My son won a blue ribbon with this recipe at our County Fair!


2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup granulated white sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups mashed ripe banana (about 3 bananas)
1/2 cup egg substitute
1/3 cup plain low-fat yogurt
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 8 1/2 x 4 1/2- inch loaf pan with cooking spray.

2. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups and level with knife. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Whisk together to mix.

3. In a large bowl, beat sugar and butter together on medium- speed until well blended (about 1 minute). Add banana, egg sub., and yogurt; beat until blended. Add flour mixture; beat at low speed just until moist.

4. Place chocolate chips in a medium microwave- safe bowl, and microwave at HIGH 1 minute or until almost melted, stirring until smooth. Cool slightly. Add 1 cup of batter to chocolate, stirring until well combined. Spoon chocolate batter alternately with plain batter into prepared pan. Swirl batters together with a knife.

5. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack; remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.
