SUGAR-FREE Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread

SUGAR-FREE Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread

Banana Bread is one of those things you either love or hate. If you love it – and you’re like me – you can’t get enough of it 😊 I decided to try and make a few healthy swaps and turn the old sugary, buttery banana bread into something new: my Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread.

I know sometimes these healthy substitutions don’t always turn out as good as the original – with sugar and butter galore. If you’re one of those rare unicorns that can bake a delicious banana bread once a year – have one slice and that’s done – then maybe this kind of recipe isn’t for you. BUT – if you enjoy satisfying your sweet tooth on a regular basis – then this is definitely the kind of recipe you need because a serving is UNDER 100 calories (gasp!!!!).

I made a chocolate swirl banana bread for an extra hit of change. So easy! To be honest, it was a last-minute decision on my part. Once you’ve spooned ¾ of the batter into the loaf tin – add no more than a teaspoon of cocoa powder to the remaining batter. Once incorporated, spoon it into the loaf tin. Then take the back of a spoon and swirl it into the batter. Personally, I think it just makes it look awesome haha 😊

If you’re feeling brave – feel free to change the recipe to your preference: for example, add a little more xylitol if you crave a little more sweetness.
