Banana Chocolate Marble Loaf

by Destini on September 20, 2012

I know I know two desert recipes in one week might be a overload. But I had some ripe bananas and was craving chocolate. Why not create a marble loaf and call it bliss. This recipe is vegan and extremely moist. I often use that when describing my cake type deserts, but it is important. I find people have this strange notion that vegan deserts might be dry as they don’t have eggs or milk. Which is the absolutely incorrect.


  • 3 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2/3 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 2 T canola oil
  • 1/3 c almond milk
  • 1 c all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 c whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 t baking soda
  • 3/4 t sea salt
  • 3 T unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 6 T boiling water, divided
  • 1/2 c chopped walnuts
  • 2 T of ground flax seeds

Directions: pre heat oven to 350F, boil water and let simmer. In a large bowl mix mashed banana, sugar, canola oil, milk and vanilla.

Now add flour, baking soda, sea salt and flax seeds. Fold in walnuts. Scoop one cup of batter in a separate mixing bowl. In a small bowl mix coco powder and 3 tablespoons of the boiling water. Mix till the coco powder is dissolved. Add chocolate mixture to the one cup of banana and mix till combined.

Add the last 3 tablespoons to the original plain banana batter. Mix till incorporated.

In a lightly greased 8×4 loaf pan, alternate 1/2 cup of chocolate batter and banana batter. Once all the batter is layered, take a butter knife and swirl through the batter in a circular motion.

Bake for 30-40min till toothpick comes out clean. Let cool and serve.

I have been following BodyRock for sometime on Facebook & YouTube. I have tried the random workout once in awhile. And they have always been a sweaty mess. But I have decided to try this a little more intensely and try it for 30 days, 5 days week, two days off! And so far so good. I have been sore in all the right ways and looking forward to giving this a try some more. I don’t own any of the equipment they use in the videos, but may invest in the Sandbag. I do want to bring some weights into my workouts.

Well off to enjoy some football! Have a great night everyone

Question: Have you ever done any workouts by BodyRock before? What did you think of them? Would you be interested in hearing more about my journey with them?
