Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread


2 cups all-purpose flour
¾ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
1 cup white sugar
¼ c. butter, softened
3 medium ripe bananas, mashed
2 eggs
1/3 c. plain yogurt
½ cup chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.

In a separate bowl, cream the sugar and butter with a mixer. Add the bananas, eggs, and yogurt, beating until just blended. Add flour mixture. Beat on low until just moistened.

Microwave chocolate chips in a medium bowl for 1 minute. Stir until smooth and let cool slightly. Add 1 cup of the banana bread batter to the melted chocolate, stirring until well-combined.

Spoon the chocolate batter alternately with plain batter (so you have stripes of plain and chocolate batter) into the prepared loaf pan. Swirl batters with a knife. Bake for 1 hour and 10-15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the loaf comes out clean. Cool for 15 minutes in the pan and then remove and cool completely on a wire rack.
