Gluten-Free Chocolate Marble Banana Bread Recipe

Orange and chocolate are a classic flavor pairing, creating a great complement to our banana bread. It is a perfect accompaniment to coffee with friends or is delicious enough to serve as dessert!

Yield: 1 loaf of bread



  • 1 package Breads from Anna® Banana Bread Mix
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 2 jumbo eggs, well beaten
  • 3 ripe medium bananas, pureed in food processor or blender (approximately 1 cup)
  • ½ cup gluten-free chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons orange zest


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Set rack in center. 
  2. Grease 8 ½ x 4 ½ loaf pan.
  3. Mix all wet ingredients until creamy. Add bread mix and stir until well blended.
  4. Zest orange and set aside. Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler or place chocolate chips in microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for one minute. Stir until smooth and immediately add orange zest and 1 cup batter to chocolate, stirring until well combined. Tip: it is important to mix in the orange zest and batter right away or chocolate may harden.
  5. Spoon chocolate and “plain” batter alternately into bread pan and swirl together using a knife.
  6. Bake 1 hour or until center tests clean with toothpick or knife. Let cool in pan 1 hour before slicing.
