Chocolate swirl banana bread

So we just moved and bought a new oven!!! So excited to use it but was wondering what my first baked good was going to be. I noticed I had some ripe bananas that I didn’t want to go to waist. BANANA BREAD!!! But I didn’t want just plain banana bread so I added chocolate! Also i wanted it to look appealing so I marbleized it. Beautiful! My only concern was that normalllllllllllly my home would smell amazingly good of “just” banana bread butttttttttt instead today it smelled like New Oven and Banana bread. I was hoping it wasn’t going to taste like both. But it didn’t, the banana was so fruit with the richness of the warm chocolate. Soooo good.

I remember reading something that it was Elvis’s Birthday a couple days ago. Made me think of putting peanut butter on it when it came right out of the oven! I bet Elvis would have loved that!! He’s so HOT!! haha anyways Happy Belated Birthday Elvis!

Hope you all try this recipe because its Amazing!! Enjoy!
