Eggless Banana Walnut Bread with Chocolate Chips

Banana bread is a cake-like bread. Banana bread is usually a quick bread which uses baking soda as the leavening agent instead of yeast.

Here is what you need:
1 cup Flour
1 cup Whole wheat flour
1 tsp Baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup unsalted melted butter
1 cup Sugar (I used 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar)
2 tbsp flax seed meal (mixed in 6 tbsp water)
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (I used 2 and 1/2 large bananas)
1/3 cup Milk
1/2 cup walnuts chopped
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Here is how I made it:
Blend together butter and sugar till the mixture is creamy. Add banana, vanilla extract and flax seed meal mixture.In a seperate mixing bowl, sift together dry ingredients and mix.

Add flour mixture to the butter mixture in parts. Add milk in alternate with flour mixture.

Blend everything well untill the batter becomes thick. Stir in walnuts and chocolate chips, and pour into a greased loaf pan. I used 10" x 5" size loaf pan.

Bake in preheated oven at 325 degrees for 80 mins. Insert a toothpick to check whether its done.

Bananas make the cake very moist and you will definately not miss the eggs :)

You can also use this batter for banana muffins.
