Banana and chocolate loaf

Dark Chocolate And Banana Loaf.

This is a soul satisfying treat for us. This moist, chocolaty, and refined sugar and refined flour free loaf pairs well with coffee or tea and makes for an easy and healthy snack option for kids. 

This is made with whole wheat flour and I have used egg in this recipe but I will leave the option for the eggless one in the recipe notes. Use of brown sugar is recommended for this recipe for a rich caramel taste. However, regular castor sugar could be used too if brown sugar is not available.

And those who know my love for chocolate, also must have realised from this picture that I poured that ganache in the cup over my baked loaf for the extra chocolate overload.
