Happy September everyone! <3 Today I am sharing my most favorite Chocolate Banana Bread recipe. Healthy and delicious.
Hello There! How’s everyone doing? It’s been a lovely week. Just in case if you have not noticed I didn’t post anything for 5days. Ahem Ahem…It was my BIRTHDAY on 7th! You can wish me now. 😀 <3 September Born <3 Virgo! A perfect combination of A Queen and A Warrior! 😀 We were off to a short road trip to Solvang and Santa Barbara. I and the husband love to visit places which is more close to nature and less crowded. Though, everything has it’s own pros and cons. But, let’s talk HAPPY! <3 Solvang is a beautiful Danish town to visit when you want some relaxation and a break from the daily routine. I will surely try posting a detailed blog on the beautiful trip we had. It feels like I am still there and never wanna come back. 😀
Coming back to the post, just a day before leaving for the trip, I prepared this Chocolate Banana Bread as I was badly craving for banana bread and the second most important reason was, I am always hungry while traveling and it’s better to have something homemade for snacks or midnight cravings. What say?
Moist textured, nutty bites, flavorful, and delicious in every bite, the best and healthy bread you will ever have. And of course, goes very well with tea or coffee. <3 Banana bread is great for breakfast, snack, or even for dessert.
I used 1 cup of whole wheat flour and a just ¾ cup of all-purpose flour to make it less guilty. 😉 Feel free to use the whole of wheat flour only, the texture will be little crumbly though. replace the regular sugar with brown sugar if you have. I was out of brown sugar so I used the regular granulated sugar. Enjoy guilt-free. 🙂
I know nobody wants to eat an overripe banana, and I hardly eat a banana if I see more black spots on Banana. It feels so bad to trash the overripe banana. This time I knew how to use the overripe banana. Is there any better way to use an overripe banana? The flavor of overripe banana is so good that you won’t be able to control your temptation.
Bake and share with me how it turned out for you. 🙂 Do let me know your feedback in the comments section.
