I used my classic vegan banana bread recipe and altered it a little to work.

You can use a standard 8 x 4 loaf pan but if you’re interested, I used this super fun fluted loaf pan.

We’re going to keep this one short and simple today! I hope you love this banana bread and if you make it, please snap a photo and tag me on social media @foodwithfeeling!

This swirled VEGAN Banana Bread is simple to make and always a show stopper in the kitchen!


Units Scale
  • 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup of maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup of almond milk
  • 6 tablespoons of nut butter- I typically use peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 3 medium extra ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
  • 2oz of dark chocolate, melted


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F and generously grease an 8 x 4 inch loaf pan.
  2. Sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl.
  3. Stir in the milk, nut butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and mashed banana. Stir until well combined.
  4. Spoon about 1/3 of the batter into a separate bowl and mix in the cocoa powder + melted chocolate until just combined. Spoon (or pipe) the 2 separate batters into into the loaf pan (see video for reference) and use a butter knife to lightly swirl the batter together. Don’t swirl too much though or the batter will mix together and you won’t get the marbled effect.
  5. Bake for 40 minutes. Cover the loaf with foil so the top doesn’t get too brown and bake for an additional 10-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.*
  6. Let cool and ENJOY!!


*you can use a different sized loaf pan but it may affect the bake time. If using an 9×5 inch pan, you will likely need less bake time
