Eggless Chocolate Banana Bread (Wheat flour & amp)

Banana is one fruit which nobody likes over ripened at my home and I think the same goes with many other homes too.I always have to think new ways to finish them off.Kids often get bored off the same recipe soon and so this was yet another trial after the Low Fat Banana Bread. Banana and chocolates gives a new flavour lock and indeed chocolates are kids favorite too !! How about tricking kids under the idea of chocolates and nurturing them with bananas,sounds great ,Right? I could blindly fold the bananas in it and kidoos enjoyed each bit of it!! Above all of these its an eggless bake,bananas act as the binder .So,Try this out & enjoy a healthy breakfast !!

Recipe Source : Joy of baking




Ingredients
*wheat flour - 1 3/4 cups
Unsweetened cocoa powder 1/4 cup
White sugar  3/4 cup
baking powder 1 tsp
baking soda 1/4 tsp
unsalted butter 1/2 cup (I used 1/3 cup)
bananas 3 ripe mashed
vanilla extract 1 tsp
salt 1/4 tsp
walnuts or pecans or almond  coarsely chopped 1/3 cup(I used almonds)




Method
In a large bowl ,sift the flours and mix the wheat flour,cocoa ,baking powder,baking soda ,salt.
Pre heat oven to 350 degree F and place the rack in middle position.
Place nuts on the baking tray and bake for 8-10 minutes to lightly toast them.
Blend the bananas in a blender,add to it .Add in the melted butter and vanilla extract.
Fold in the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined such that the batter is thick and chunky.
Fold in the nuts and pour into a 9*5*3 inches bread pan sprayed with oil.
Place it in the oven and bake for 55-65 minutes.
Cool on wire rack and remove from pan to cut slices and serve.



Notes
* The original recipe uses all purpose flour .I just modified it as wheat flour for a healthier version.
* You can increase the sugar from 3/4 cup to 1 cup if you want it very sweet.
