Eggless chocolate and banana bread

I love my eggs. I love them for breakfast, I love them in my curries and I love them in my desserts. I have never liked eggless versions of anything that was supposed to have eggs in the first place. I’m talking about store bought stuff here. But I understand that there are people who avoid eggs due to allergies or just by choice. This one’s for them. There are various substitutes for eggs – few are hard to find and few you’d find in your pantry. One such was fruit puree. I thought of pear¬†initially because¬†its flavour isn’t as distinct as a banana. But I didn’t have any on my and all I had was banana.

The best way to bring chocolate and banana together is sure in the form of a loaf. This can also be turned into muffins. This loaf isn’t as fluffy as it’d have been if it were made with eggs. But it sure was more moist and absolutely delicious. Have a go at it and let me know!
