Friend, I bring you the mother of all banana bread and the reason my oven has been lit for days upon days this summer, Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread. This bread will blow your taste buds and chocolate cravings all in one little bite.
In a small saucepan or double broiler melt the chocolate chips on the stove-top over medium heat. Once melted turn off the heat and set aside.
In the jar of a blender (I use this one), add the honey, whole milk, butter, and vanilla extract. Pulse for 5-10 seconds until combined.
Add the walnuts, bananas, and eggs to the blender jar. Pulse for another 5-10 seconds until combined.
Add the flour, baking soda, and salt to the blender jar. Pulse until all the ingredients are combined, 10-15 seconds. Stop as needed to scrape the sides of the blender.
Remove all but one cup of the banana mixture. I pour the batter into a large glass measuring bowl. Set aside.
Add the melted chocolate chips to the remaining one cup banana batter in the blender jar. Pulse for 5-10 seconds until the chocolate is blended into the banana mixture.
Line a standard-size loaf pan with parchment paper or grease with butter or coconut oil (to prevent sticking). Pour half the banana batter in the loaf pan. Pour the chocolate banana batter over the top. Repeat with the remaining plain banana batter. To create a marble affect run a butter knife or chop stick from side-to-side of the batter.
Bake for 50 minutes. You can test if the bread is done by inserting a knife, skewer, or chop stick through the center. When the bread is done the utensil will appear clean without any wet batter.
Allow to cool for 10 minutes before removing from the pan.
