The most searched recipe during the Corona Virus Pandemic lock down was the Banana Bread. Therefore I consciously made an effort not to post this recipe during that time. Banana the humble fruit is the one that came in handy from making breads, to pancakes to ice creams during this period. Mainly because, when none of the fancy fruits were available the ever available Banana ruled the roost. Its downside though was its shorter shelf life. This was taken care of by using overripe Bananas in breads and ice creams.

My recipe is very basic and you know my love for one bowl recipes. I have just added some choco chips for the chocoholics at home and some walnuts for me. Brown sugar, eggs, and coconut oil combine to make this bread super moist.

I could simply have the bread as is, but for people need a topping I would recommend- Cinnamon sugar, Cream cheese frosting, Nutella or just sweetened cream. While you are here checkout more dessert recipes like – Strawberry Lemon Loaf, Eggless Pineapple Cake, Bishop nut Bread and more…

Let’s get to the recipe right away…

      Hi Lalitha, Substitute for egg is flax seed powder. For every egg 1 tbsp of flax seed should be added.
