Wooo hooo! It might snow! Okay, so it will only be a 1/2 of an inch followed by a lot of treacherous ice but where I live this is a big deal. My 6-year-old gets out of school at noon today even though the “wintry mix” isn’t supposed to start until tonight. I know this must seem crazy to everyone up north but people just freak out down south when it comes to winter weather. In order to celebrate this weather event {yes, that’s what we call bad weather, “events”}, I figured I would bake some sweet and yummy Marbled Chocolate Banana Bread.

As we speak, Will and I are enjoying this banana bread, he’s washing his piece down with milk, I’ve got some coffee. He told me that I make the best banana bread ever  I know he’s only 4 but the boy does love himself some banana bread. And he’s not shy about telling me when he doesn’t like something; that’s for sure!

This Chocolate Marbled Banana Bread was inspired by my most popular Pinterest Post ever, my Chocolate Chip Banana Bread. Both are delicious but I’ve got to say this one is my fave so far. I love how the chocolate is marbled throughout the bread, it’s super sweet and has a great fluffy texture. I made this banana bread with whole white wheat flour making it a tad bit healthier than your average bread.

This bread is great on its own, no need to add any spread! Enjoy
