Bananas with Chocolates and Walnuts – is really a classic combination. And this recipe has goodness of the humble fruit that fills your tummy and wheat flour as well. Banana for vegetarians is a boon when it comes to baking and replacing eggs, really! It adds taste, aroma and incredibly mouth-watering flavour. It makes the bread dense and soft. The banana is the hero of today’s recipe, indeed!
You may make an extra loaf, wrap it in plastic, and freeze (stays good for a week). Thaw at room temperature for an hour and you’ll have fresh banana bread ready to go by the time everyone wakes up.

2 large bananas (or 3 small)
3/4th cup sugar
3/4th cup all-purpose flour
½ cup Wheat flour
½ cup chocolate chips
1/4th cup milk
1/4th cup vegetable oil
2 tbsp. curd
1 tsp. Vanilla essence
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. baking powder
10 – 12 walnuts, roughly chopped
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Sieve the dry ingredients – wheat flour, all purpose flour, baking soda and baking powder together and keep it aside. Grease a bread/loaf tin with butter and dust all purpose flour evenly.
Chop the bananas into small pieces and add the sugar and milk to it. Grind it to make a smooth paste. Take this mixture in a big bowl, and add oil, vanilla essence and curd to it and mix well.
After all the ingredients are combined together, fold in the sifted dry ingredients mixture into it. Add the chopped walnuts and mix them into the batter. In a bowl take the chocolate chips and add 1 tsp of all purpose flour, mix it (the chips should be coated by the flour – chips don’t sink to the bottom this way) and add it to the batter.
Pour the prepared batter into the tin and bake at least 35 minutes. (Check if done, otherwise keep for 2 – 4 more minutes)
Remove from oven and allow the bread to cool. Cut slices and serve.
