Chocolate Marble Banana Muffins

A friend of mine made these a few weeks ago...then my Saturday when I had a few bananas that needed to be used up I gave in and finally tried them. Delicious! I found the recipe here.

I only did a couple things differently, which are highlighted in orange.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 medium ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)
  • 1 cup buttermilk (I poured 1 Tablespoon white vinegar into a 1 cup measuring cup then filled it up with Vitamin D Milk and let is set for 5 minutes. Ta Da! Buttermilk!)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 cup chocolate chips, optional

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spray 12 count muffin tin.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. In a medium bowl, mash the bananas, then whisk in the buttermilk, sugar, oil, egg, and vanilla extract.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the flour mixture, and whisk until just blended.
  5. Remove one cup of the batter, and add it to a medium bowl. Whisk in the cocoa powder, just until blended.
  6. Mix chocolate chips into the regular, white/yellow batter.
  7. Divide the regular, white/yellow batter between muffin cups.
  8. Scoop 1 tablespoon of chocolate batter on top of the batter in each muffin cup.
  9. Using a toothpick, swirl the chocolate batter into the banana batter.
  10. Bake for about 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
