Whole wheat banana bread


This is a very healthy and tasty banana bread made with whole wheat flour. The added chocolate chips and walnuts make it extra delicious. This recipe is eggless! These are amazing as slices or as muffins too! These are amazing for breakfast or for a quick snack.

Bananas and walnuts are an amazing combo! The crunchy and nutty bite of walnuts is always divine! Try substituting any nuts if your choice. If you have nut allergies, it can be skipped too. Choose vegan chocolate chips to make vegan banana bread.


I made this loaf with Taylor & Colledge Vanilla bean paste. This imparts amazing tones of vanilla perfect for delicious baked goods. I have used T&C vanilla bean paste in this amazing Eggless Pear Almond Mini Loaves and Apple Cider Milk Tea With Boba and Caramel Apple. Also in this Vanilla Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies. Every time I use this paste, I have a perfect satisfaction of the resulting baked goods.


Let me share an amazing and simple tip. When you use nuts or chocolate chips in breads or cakes, dust with a little flour and then fold into the batter. This will prevent the chips from sinking to the bottom and the result is evenly distributed nuts/chips.

This is a recipe with whole wheat bread. In all my experiments, I found this to be the most perfect,moist, and delicious loaf! This is addictive and I am warning you that it is hard to control gobbling it up! I have used GM Whole wheat flour for this bread. I have tried with atta used for regular chapathi. In that case you may need two more tablespoons of oil and apple sauce. It just depends on the flour type/brand.
