I do love banana bread, especially with a large cup of tea. But this variation of the classic isn’t too bad either (if I do say so myself). This recipe makes 2 loafs and 15 minutes prep, and just over an hour cooking time. This recipe is done using a food processor!
4 Ripe Bananas
150g Dark Chocolate Chips
200g Caster Sugar
150g Unsalted Butter
200g Self Raising Flour
100g Walnut Halves (Crushed)
1 tablespoon Vanilla Extract
- Pre heat the oven to 190c
- First empty the sugar and butter into the food processor. Turn it on to speed number 1, until the butter and sugar is light and fluffy.
- Next chop the bananas into thumb size pieces, add to the creamed butter and sugar on speed 1 until the bananas are combined. Also add the tablespoon of vanilla extract.
- Add the eggs and flour whilst the food processor is still on. Once all the traces of flour are gone, pour the loaf mixture into a large mixing bowl.
- In a freezer bag empty the walnut halves and lightly crush them with a rolling pin. Empty the walnuts and chocolate chips into the mixture using a spatula to mix them in.
- Grease your loaf tins with butter and line with greaseproof paper. Evenly dive the mixture between the two loaf tins, place on the bottom shelf of the oven for 1 hour or a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.
- Once the loaf is cooked, remove from the oven and leave to sit for 3-5 minutes. Then turn it out onto a wire cooling rack.
Best served warm, enjoy!
