    Sharlene~W's Note:

    For a light, tender crumb, be careful not to overmix the batter after adding the flour. Once all of the ingredients are mixed together, put in oven right away. If it sits for too long, the soda will start to lose its leavening power--so work quickly when melting chocolate. Discovered this delight in Cooking Light (low-fat version).

      This is the recipe from Cooking Lights Sept 2003 magazine. Without a doubt the best low fat banana bread I have ever made. I changed two things - I add 2 full cups of mashed banana and 1/2 cup sour cream. The result is an incredibly moist, delicious choc./banana treat. Every where I take this I am handing the recipe out!!

      Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm........yum! My marbling skills could use help, but that didn't make it taste any less delicious!!! I used 1/2 cup sugar(which was PLENTY given the sweet bananas & chocolate!), and half whole wheat flour. I also used canola oil because it's healthier than butter. I just used a whisk to mix everything up. Thanks for posting this!

      I can't tell you how much FUN I had making this recipe! I have 2 other banana bread recipes that are my "norm" but it was great to try a Cooking Light recipe to change things up (I normally enjoy their bread recipes). My husband tried a slice & said it tasted like banana choc chip bread (only with a "swirl!"). I used 1/4 cup Splenda & 1/4 cup sugar instead of the full cup. Thankfully that worked fine! I will hopefully try a slice myself soon; I just needed my "taste tester" to help me out! I DID think a 9X5 pan would work better than an 8X4--there is quite a lot of batter. Baking time was a little less than stated; the loaf was plenty brown. Thank you for sharing!!!
