  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and line a 9×5-inch loaf pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang for easy removal.
  2. Make the Banana Bread Base:
    • In a large bowl, whisk together the mashed bananas, granulated sugar, brown sugar, melted butter, vanilla extract, and egg until well combined.
    • Add the baking soda, salt, and flour, stirring until just combined. Set aside.
  3. Make the Brownie Batter:
    • In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter in the microwave in 30-second increments until fully melted.
    • Stir in the granulated sugar, followed by the eggs and vanilla extract.
    • Sift in the cocoa powder, flour, baking powder, and salt, mixing until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips if using.
  4. Assemble the Banana Bread:
    • Pour half of the banana bread batter into the prepared loaf pan, spreading it evenly.
    • Spoon dollops of brownie batter over the banana bread layer, then gently swirl with a knife or skewer for a marbled effect.
    • Pour the remaining banana bread batter on top, followed by the rest of the brownie batter, swirling again for a beautiful marbled look.
  5. Bake:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 60-70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs (not wet batter).
    • If the top starts to brown too quickly, tent it with aluminum foil halfway through baking.
  6. Cool and Serve:
    • Allow the bread to cool in the pan for about 15 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
    • Slice and enjoy the rich, chocolatey, banana goodness!
