  • 5 cups banana bananas ripe puree OR s ) 6 small
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup yogurt whisked
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon ground
  • 1.5 tsps baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tbsps chocolate or Nesquick or chocolate drinking malted drink mix
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips


  • Grease and line the loaf tin.
  • Preheat the oven at 180xb0C.
  • In a blender or mixer, blend the bananas, oil, milk, egg, yogurt, vanilla extract and sugar to a fine puree.
  • Scrape it out into a large bowl.
  • Sieve all the dry ingredients into this bowl (all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, salt, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, drinking chocolate).
  • Gently mix in the vinegar and chocolate chips until well incorporated and scrape this batter into the prepared loaf tin and bake for 40 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.
  • Cool in the tin for 10 minutes. Unmold the loaf and cool for further 15 minutes before slicing with a serrated knife.


To make this egg-free, you can try replacing the egg with one flax egg - 1 tbsp flaxseed meal with 3 tbsp hot water, whisk till frothy and incorporate into batter, instead of egg.
To serve, warm each slice for 15 seconds in the microwave, it will make the chocochips a little melty and more fun to eat!
