Banana Zebra Bread Loaf

In the month of Ramadan I get more creative (like most women) especially while I’m fasting, and believe me when you fast and you are a foodie, the number of ideas you get for snacks and desserts is astonishing. Banana Zebra Bread is a combination of two goodies, banana bread, and chocolate cake.

The Making of Banana Zebra Bread loaf

After Iftaar, the best drink is black coffee with dessert on the side (at least for me). This Banana Zebra Bread loaf is everything you ever wanted in a banana bread, it’s moist, delicious, smells amazing, and a great companion to that big mug filled with coffee.

I wonder how it will taste if I made it a banana chocolate loaf cake, I’m sure it will taste out of this world, I guess I have to work on that project soon but for now, I am very pleased with what I just baked.

If you are a fan of classic Banana Bread, I have a recipe for you in this link, it is low in calorie and originally created by Nigella Lawson, I just made lighter and it can easily please a crowd.

, and if you happen to make any of my recipes, please post the picture and mention me in your post, or use this hashtag #Arinacooking. I would love to see your creation.

Note: I added 1/4 cup shredded coconut in the banana bread batter (which you can see in the pictures.) some were not fond of the texture, so if you love coconut go ahead and add it.
