I made this recipe tonight for the first time and it came out very good!!!

Marbled-Chocolate Banana Bread
via Cooking Light

2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
1 cup sugar
¼ cup butter, softened
1 ½ cups mashed ripe banana (about 3 bananas)
½ cup egg substitute
1/3 cup plain low-fat yogurt
½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Combine the flour, baking soda and salt together and stir with a wisk.
In a separate bowl, place the sugar and butter, beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended (about 1 minute).
Add Banana, egg substitute and yogurt. Beat until blended
Add flour mixture, beat at low speed just until moist
Place chocolate chips in a medium microwave-safe bowl and heat on high for 1 minute or until almost melted, stirring until smooth. Cool slightly. Add 1 cup batter to chocolate, stirring well until combined. Spoon plain batter alternatively with chocolate batter into an 8 ½ x 4 ½ inch loaf pan that is coated with cooking spray. Swirl batter together using a knife.
Bake at 350 for 1 hour and 15 minutes (1 hour 5 minutes in gas oven) or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool for 10 minutes in the pan on a wire rack, then remove from pan. Cool completely on wire wrack.
