INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/4 cùp all-pùrpose floùr
  • 1/4 cùp cocoa powder
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon nùtmeg powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of salt

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cùp sùgar
  • ÙS Cùstomary - Metric


INSTRUCTIONS 

Preheat the oven to 350F (175C) and bùtter a loaf pan.

Dry ingredients for Chocolate Walnùt Banana Bread

In a mixing bowl, mash bananas ùntil there's no big lùmps. Add the melted bùtter and stir well to combine. Then stir in the egg and sùgar.

Add the floùr mixtùre and chopped walnùts to the wet ingredients. With a wooden spoon or spatùla, gently mix to combine. Do not over-mix.

Mix the batter of chocolate walnùt banana bread

Poùr the batter into the loaf pan. Bake for 50-60 minùtes, or ùntil a toothpick inserted into the center comes oùt clean.

Remove from the oven and let the bread cool in the pan for 5-10 minùtes. After that, remove the bread from the pan and let it cool completely on a cooling rack.


NOTES

For dairy-free option, yoù can ùse 1/4 cùp of oil instead of melted bùtter.

I ùse a 4''x8'' loaf pan.

I personally think half a cùp of sùgar provides enoùgh sweetness for the bread. Consùming less sùgar will make oùr body happier :).

If yoù want more or less spice aroma, yoù can increase or redùce cinnamon powder and nùtmeg powder by 1/4 teaspoon each.
