Chocolate Banana Bread (Eggless)

"Most of us miss out on life's big prizes.  The Pulitzer.  The Nobel. Oscars. Tonys. Emmys. But we are all eligible for life's small pleasures. A pat on the back. A kiss behind the ear. A four pound bass. A full moon. An empty parking space.  A crackling fire.  A great meal.  A glorious sunset. Hot soup.  Cold beer.  Don't fret about getting life's grand awards. Enjoy its tiny delights.  There are plenty for all of us." ~ Robin Sharma

Having a warm chocolate banana bread on a rainy day is one such simple joy I experienced. God!!! I want to make this again and again. My Son loves Chocolate in any form and he had this as a snack every other day. I am sure he will not let me make plain banana bread ever again.

I happened to see a Chocolate Banana Bread recipe on TV using dark chocolate. But I could not get hold of the right amount of ingredients. So, there began my search for an Eggless Chocolate Banana Bread using dark chocolate. I came across this version and tried it without eggs. I substituted the eggs with ½ cup of milk and made a few other changes and the results – yummy, moist, chocolatey!!!

If you are new to baking, you must try this recipe. It is pretty simple. The use of dark chocolate gives it a brownie like texture .The colour and texture is here for you to see.

Here's the recipe for you:


100 gm butter
100 gm dark chocolate
3 over ripe medium sized bananas
½ cup palm sugar
½ cup organic sugar
1 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
¼ cup milk


Pre heat oven to 180 C (350 F).

Take butter and dark chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and heat for 1 minute in the microwave. Mix thoroughly so that the chocolate is completely melted.

Take bananas, sugar and milk and blend to a smooth mixture in a blender/mixer.

Sieve the flour , baking soda and baking powder and keep aside.

Mix the banana mixture and chocolate mixture thoroughly.

Add the flour mixture to this little by little till it is thoroughly mixed.

Grease a loaf tin and add the mixture to this.

Bake in the oven at 180 C for 35-40 minutes till a knife inserted comes out clean.
