Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 55 minutes
Serves: 2


  • Pre-heat oven to 350°F and line a loaf tin with parchment paper.
  • To make the buttermilk, mix oat milk with apple cider vinegar and set aside for 5-10 minutes.
  • Mix plain flour, baking soda, baking powder, and pink salt.
  • In another bowl mash 3 bananas, then mix in your coconut sugar.
  • Slowly mix in buttermilk and coconut oil with the mashed banana mixture.
  • Combine wet and dry and ingredients.
  • Divide the batter in half.
  • Add in cacao powder, coconut sugar, coconut oil, and oat milk in one-half of the batter. Fold until well combined.
  • Into a pre-lined loaf tin – pour half of the plain banana bread batter, then the chocolate banana bread batter, reserving around 3-4 tbsp. Pour in the other half of the plain batter, then dollop the remaining chocolate batter on top. To make the marbled effect grab a butter knife and swirl it into the batter in a large ‘S’ motion. Do this 2 – 3 times, no more!!
  • Bake for 45-55 minutes, or until you can insert a toothpick / clean knife into the middle and it comes out clean


When using melted coconut oil in any recipe with oat milk, it’s important to use room temperature milk and also slowly mix in the two when combining. If you use cold plant milk, it will cause the coconut oil to go back to its natural state and, you’ll have to re-melt the whole mixture in the microwave.
