EgglessBananaBread_Featured1

Every once in a while we have dying, over ripe bananas and do not know what to do with them. The easiest is to throw them away but that would not be wise thing to do. These overripe bananas get sweeter as they age and become more nutritious. I combined them with whole wheat flour and hand husked melon seeds. It made a divine, delicious bread.

I made them two weeks back when my in laws and parents visited us in the hills. Since they are vegetarians I had to make this bread without eggs. Inspite of no eggs the bread came out super moist because it had these delicious over ripe bananas.

Directions:

1. Peel bananas and cut them into slices.

    I made this bread many times in microwave on micro mode at100 % for 8min. It is yummy but upper layer is white

  4. Manju Gupta I do not bake in microwave. This cake is baked in Oven which makes the crust golden brown. I think that is the reason.
