Chocolate Flavoured Apple Banana Breakfast Loaf

Today's post is about a healthy breakfast loaf which I tried from Joy of Baking few days back. 
 As a mother, we all struggle to feed some fruits so our kids. My sons love bananas, but my daughter don't. Again my daughter likes apples, but my sons don't. I think this also goes same way at your home also. So I tried this healthy breakfast loaf, combining apple and bananas with walnut topping, adapted from Joy of Baking's Strawberry-banana muffin. I replaced strawberry with apples and made it into a loaf instead of muffins and topped the loaf with walnuts for the crunch and nutty goodness. I added Hershey's Chocolate Syrup for chocolate flavour, as my kids just love the chocolatty flavour.

You Need :
All-Purpose Flour : 1 cup
Whole wheat Flour : 1 1/3 cup
Butter/Margarine(in room temperature) : 2/3 cup(~125 gm.) + little extra to grease the baking pan
Egg : 2
Brown Sugar : 1 cup
Banana : 2
Apple : 1 cup(diced)
Baking Powder : 1 tblsp.
Baking Soda : 1/4 tsp.
Salt : a pinch

Vanilla essence : 1 tsp.
Cinnamon powder : 2 tsp.
Chocolate Syrup : 2 tblsp.(just for flavour)
Walnuts/almonds or mixed nuts : 1/2 cup(chopped finely)

How To :
  • Preheat your oven to 175-180 degree C/375 degree F. If you are preparing muffin, grease a muffin pan with butter or use muffin liner. Or if your are preparing loaf like me, grease your loaf pan.
  • Take 2 bowls. In one bowl, mix the wet ingredients, dry in the other. Take the bananas and with a back of a fork mash them. In a medium sized bowl whisk together the eggs, sugar, vanilla extract and mashed banana. Add the melted butter and stir to combine. Add chocolate syrup, mix and your wet ingredients is ready.
  • In another bowl combine both the flours, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon powder, and salt. Mix together, add the diced apples, mix well, so that apples are nicely coated with flour mixture. Now your dry ingredients are ready.
  • Add the wet ingredients mixture to the dry ingredients and using a wire whisk, mix only until the ingredients are combined well. Do not over mix the batter, or your muffin/cake/loaf will harden.  Your batter is ready now.
  • Now pour your batter in muffin/loaf/cake pan, lastly decorate the top with chopped walnuts//almond and place it in the oven. For muffin, bake about 20-25 minutes or for cake/loaf, bake about 45-60 minutes. To check if it is done, insert a toothpick in center of a muffin/loaf/cake, should come out clean. 
    Cool on a wire rack, drizzle some extra chocolate syrup from top or on each pieces. Your kids will guaranteed love this bread.
