Dark Chocolate Marbled Banana Bread with Greek Yogurt

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"I created this recipe using my favorite parts of many different recipes. This bread isn't very sweet, so it's not for those who enjoy a sweeter bread. The chocolate throughout makes this a beautiful bread to entertain with."

Sour cream is a good substitute for yogurt if you don't have it. Very moist and just chocolaty enough. Friends always want more.

Scrumptious! I didn't change the recipe at all, but I did add some chopped walnuts and dark chocolate chips to the batter. Yummy!
