Chocolate walnut banana bread/ Eggless chocolate walnut banana bread

 Chocolate is a major weakness and I desperately crave for it if I don't get it atleast once a week. Now you might be thinking that it's too much of an ask. But, from the time my Chocolate cake with chocolate ganache got over, I have been experiencing " the chocolate yearning syndrome"!  
I had a couple of disgusting looking overripe bananas on the countertop and a bag of chocolate chips. Yippy..the devil in my mind had already started planning about banana bread..ofcourse with chocolate chips and I wouldn't mind the goodness of chopped walnuts to go alongwith it. So here it is...

  • 1-1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 overripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup bitter sweet or semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat oven at 350 degrees.
Combine the sour cream and olive oil and stir them together nicely using a blender. Keep this liquid aside.
Combine the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda in a mixing bowl.
Mash the banana and add it to the dry ingredients.
Slowly pour the liquid and the vanilla essence and fold it nicely with the dry ingredients till it forms a smooth paste.
Add the walnuts and chocolate chips.
Grease a bread pan and pour the in the mixture into it.
Bake in the preheated oven for an 40-45 minutes or until a tester inserted comes out clean.
Well here is the complete loaf...
Can't wait to have them...
And here is my breakfast with a glass of soy milk..yumm..yumm!!
