Paleo Banana – Sweet Potato Marble Loaf

loafSometimes 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)

3 eggs

1 banana

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.

    I have sweet potato flour. Do you know the amount to use instead of an actual potato?

      Oooh, I am not sure. I would say to mix up everything else and then gradually add the sweet potato flour. It should be the consistency of muffin batter. Let me know how it goes. I’d love to hear.
