Alternating layers of banana and chocolate come together in these luscious banana marble muffins. Grab one on the go for breakfast! —Lisa @ Healthy Nibbles & Bits

What You'll Need
  • 2 medium ripe bananas, mahsed
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (180 degrees C). Grease a 12-muffin pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the mashed bananas, oil, applesauce, eggs, sugar, and vanilla together.
  3. In another bowl, mix together the all-purpose flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients.
  4. In a microwave-safe bowl, heat the chocolate chips for a minute and check them. Continue microwaving the chips in 20-second increments until all the chips have a glossy sheen. Stir the chocolate together until you get a thick chocolate sauce. Mix this melted chocolate with 1 cup of the muffin batter.
  5. Pour a layer of the banana batter into all of the tins, then top it with a chocolate layer. Continue alternating layers until all the muffin tins are full with the batter. I made the top layer half-banana and half-chocolate. Run a toothpick on top to create a swirl pattern.
  6. Bake the muffins for 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  7. Store any leftovers in room temperature in an airtight container.
