Eggless Banana Chocolate Bread

Pillayaar Chathurthi meant, we bought a whole load of fruits. For just tw of us its definitely too much :).

Extra bananas promptly turned into Low Fat Eggless Banana bread. This is an easy bake recipe. you could substitute the whole wheat flour with all purpose as well.

What you need : makes 15 (1/2") slices

1 cup mashed bananas - (it took me three ripe ones)
1 1/4 Cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup yogurt or 1/4 cup butter milk (optional / substitute with 1/4 cup warm water)
2 - 3tbsp olive oil
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt (optional)
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp Elaichi (cardamom) powder
1 tbsp unsweetened Chocolate powder (any baking choc powder is fine)
2 tbsp water (as needed) (skip this if you use butter milk)

What you need to do
Preheat your oven @350F/180C
In a mixing bowl, mix in the flour, baking soda, salt, sugar, cardamom powder, chocolate powder
Add yogurt/butter milk and mashed banana to the dry mix and fold well. 
Add olive oil, and water to bring it to a cake batter (dosa/idli batter) consistency
Bake for 35-40 minutes in the middle rack @350F or 180C
Do the fork test. Extend the bake time by another five minutes if needed
