Banana Marble Muffins

Makes 12 muffins
Prep Time20 mins
Cook Time25 mins
Total Time45 mins


  • natural cooking spray
  • 2 medium ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons, 110ml canola oil
  • 1/2 cup (115g) unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup (125g) coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups (240g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup (115g) semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (180 degrees C). Grease a 12-muffin pan with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, mix the mashed bananas, oil, applesauce, eggs, sugar, and vanilla together.
  • In another bowl, mix together the all-purpose flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, heat the chocolate chips for a minute and check them. Continue microwaving the chips in 20-second increments until all the chips have a glossy sheen. Stir the chocolate together until you get a thick chocolate sauce. Mix this melted chocolate with 1 cup of the muffin batter.
  • Pour a layer of the banana batter into all of the tins, then top it with a chocolate layer. Continue alternating layers until all the muffin tins are full with the batter. I made the top layer half-banana and half-chocolate. Run a toothpick on top to create a swirl pattern.
  • Bake the muffins for 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Store any leftovers in room temperature in an airtight container.
