Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour 5 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes 
Servings: 10 
Author: Jolly Makkar


2 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
Nonstick cooking spray, for greasing pan
3/4 Cup Dutch-process Cocoa Powder or any cocoa powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
3 Large Very Ripe Bananas peeled
3/4 Cup Vegetable Oil 
1 Cup Sugar
2 Large Egg at room temperature
2 Tsp Pure Vanilla essence
1/4 cup inside the batter + 1/2 Cup Dark chocolate chips on top
½ tsp Salt
crushed walnuts on top (optional)

Instructions :

1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Lightly grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.

2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. Don't skip the sifting. This will help break apart any fine lumps of cocoa powder or flour.

3. In a large mixing bowl, mash bananas well. Mix in the powdered sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla essence, making sure to bread apart any lumps of sugar.

4. Begin gradually adding the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. After all wet and dry ingredients are combined well. Do not over mix. Add 1/4 cup chocolate chips into the batter.

5. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, and smooth the top with a rubber spatula. Sprinkle rest of chocolate chips and crushed walnuts over the top.

6. Transfer to the preheated oven and bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out mostly clean, without any moist batter. 

7. Remove the pan from the oven and allow it to cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes. 

8. Run a knife along the edges of the pan to loosen the banana bread, and Use the sides of the parchment paper to lift the banana bread out of the pan. Slice and enjoy.

9. Store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature.
