Dry Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup all-purpose flour (maida)
  • 3/4 Cup dark brown sugar or white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 Cup dark chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate
  • 1/4 Cup chopped walnuts

Wet Ingredients:

  • 3 overripe banana
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 Cup yogurt/curd
  • 1/4 Cup olive oil


  • Pre-heat oven at 180° C. Prepare your loaf pan by greasing it with a teaspoon of olive oil and line with parchment paper. Set aside.

Combine Dry Ingredients:

  • In a mixing bowl, sift together both the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.

Combine Liquid Ingredients:

  • In a small mixing bowl mash the bananas using a fork nicely until no lumps remain. Combine oil, yogurt, sugar, and vanilla extract with the mashed bananas.
  • Whisk until just mixed to a smooth and creamy consistency, approximately for 5 minutes. You can also use a hand blender or a smoothie mixer to ease the process of mixing.

Prepare Batter:

  • Pour the liquid ingredients over the flour mix. Gently folding the batter with a spatula, till all the flour is incorporated into the cake batter and no streaks of flour remain.
  • Add chocolate chips and chopped walnuts. Fold them gently into the batter.

Bake Bread:

  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Evenly spread the batter using a spatula. If you prefer, sprinkle chocolate chips and walnuts on top. Tap the tin on the kitchen counter to release the air trapped in the batter.
  • Bake for 40 minutes or until the bread is golden brown, well risen and a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  • Allow the bread to cool in the tin for 10 - 15 minutes. Then transfer to a wire rack to cool down completely.
  • Slice and serve eggless banana bread with frosting or spread of your choice.
