Chocolate Chip Banana Bread for Passover & Easter

This week I had a meeting with people who celebrate both Passover and Easter so what do you make to please a variety of people during a holy week?

My answer was to make Chocolate Chip Banana Bread   In order to make it ok for Passover I used Matzoh Meal and Potato Starch.

I looked through a bunch of different recipes but I didn't like the combinations so I made up my own version.   It was an experiment but luckily it worked.  Everyone loved it.

So for this crowd pleaser you need to do the following:



Dry Ingredients:

1 cup Potato Starch
1 cup Matzoh Meal
1 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
½ cup coconut
½ cup chocolate chips
½ cup walnuts

Wet Ingredients:

½ cup or 2 sticks of melted butter
 1 bunch of over ripe bananas mashed
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

And it's easy to put together:


Preheat the oven to 350ºF.  Butter a loaf pan and set aside. You can also line it with parchment paper to release easier.

In 2 separate bowls mix all of the dry ingredients in one bowl and all of the wet ingredients in another bowl.  Make sure the eggs and butter are room temperature.

Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until it’s fully combined.

Pour the mixture into the loaf pan and bake for 60 min. or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.   Cool on a wire rack.
 I found it very mushy in the middle so I cut it in slices and then put it back in the oven and it toasted it up a little bit more and added a lot more flavour.     You might want to test it to make it as dry as you like.   Because it doesn't have any baking powder it won't rise.   This amount will fill a loaf pan.
