Chocolate banana whole wheat bread

Bananas are such a versatile fruit . It’s like an all day snack or even desert . But every time I buy bananas , a few of them always become overripe and mushy. Then the best way to consume them is to make a smoothie or a milk shake with them. Today I converted them into a chocolate banana bread. The good part is that as the bananas ripen , their sweetness increases and they are perfect for cooking.


1 cup mashed bananas

1 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup coco powder

3/4 th cup sugar

1 large egg

1/2 cup low fat yoghurt

1/4 th cup oil

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp cinnamon powder

1 tsp vanilla essence

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 th tsp salt

Method :

Preheat the oven to 180 degree. Mix the mashed bananas with yoghurt and baking soda and keep aside for a while . In another bowl whisk the egg , oil , sugar and vanilla. Sieve flour , coco powder, baking powder , cinnamon and salt. Add banana mixture with the oil mixture and add this to the dry mix. Stir till it is just moistened and bake in a loaf tin for 45 -55 minutes .
