Pretty Polymath :: Chocolate Chip Banana Walnut Bread

Hi guys! My name is Hetal and I have lifestyle blog called Pretty Polymath. Last month Nidhi did an awesome Winter to Spring Transition post for my blog. (I actually went out and bought the cardigan she had on in the post- its super cute!) I was excited to hear that she would love for me to do a guest post for her blog as well. I love baking and so I was pretty excited to get started on this recipe. Chocolate-Chip-Banana-Walnut-Bread IMG_6871 IMG_6875 IMG_6876I always end up buying way more bananas than I’ll need when I go to the grocery store. This leaves me with
gross brown bananas almost every month. Sometimes I freeze them and blend them into banana ice cream with peanut butter; other times I make them into yummy muffins. This time I made traditional banana bread with a twist.  I love pairing chocolate with bananas, well, I love pairing anything with chocolate really. This bread is really nice and moist with a nice texture from the walnuts. It’s a quick and easy recipe and makes your kitchen smell amazing- try it out yourself!
3 mushy brown bananas
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1/3 cup vegetable oil OR grapeseed
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 ½ cups all-purpose
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp table salt
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ground nutmeg
½ cup crushed
¼ cup mini chocolate
1.     Preheat the oven to
350 F
2.     In a large bowl,
mash up the bananas with a fork.
3.     Next whisk in the
sugar, oil, egg, and vanilla. Whisk this together for about 1 minute until it’s
4.     In a separate bowl,
mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, chocolate
chips, and walnuts. Mixing in the chocolate chips and walnuts with the flour
will ensure that all the add-ins won’t go floating down to the bottom of your
banana bread.
5.     Add the flour
mixture to the banana mixture and stir until combined.
6.     Pour the batter into
a greased loaf pan (I lightly coated mine with vegetable spray).
7.     Bake for 50-60
minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from the middle. I like to slice
them thick and wrap them in saran wrap for a nice breakfast on the run. Enjoy!
Don’t they look delicious and easy to make?! Follow Hetal here for more wonderful lifestyle posts!!
