REAL, FRUGAL, HEALTHY, and FUN!!!
Sometimes I get an urge to bake. I decided to make a loaf with my sweet potato and banana, but when the idea to do a chocolate marble swirl hit me, I got really excited. It just sounded fun. Now, don’t mistakenly think that because there’s a chocolate swirl that it must be very sweet. It’s not. It’s very mildly sweet. However, I’ve added the option of adding a tablespoon of maple syrup for those who want something more dessert-like. I think it’s delicious without. It’s delicious with a little butter, almond butter, or coconut butter spread on a slice.
1/2 baked sweet potato (about 1/3 cup)
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 cup tapioca flour
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Dash of nutmeg
Dash of ginger
1 Tbsp maple syrup (optional)
1-1/2 tsp cocoa
Directions: Preheat oven to 350′ and grease 2 small loaf pans. Put sweet potato, eggs, banana, baking soda, tapioca flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger into a blender. If you want to add the maple syrup, add that here, too. Puree ingredients until smooth. Pour 1/2 cup batter into a small bowl. Pour remaining batter into loaf pans. Add the cocoa to the 1/2 cup of batter you set aside in a bowl. Mix well. Scoop spoonfuls of the chocolaty batter on top of the batter you already poured into the loaf pans. Using a spoon or butter knife, swirl the chocolaty batter into the regular batter, being careful not to mix. Bake for about 20 minutes.
