Chai Spiced Banana Bread – Eggless too ! 

Chai – that one word evokes so many emotions – comfort, passion, luxury .. different for each one of us. Although I don’t drink tea or coffee, I do appreciate the aromas of both the beverages. It is usually filter kaapi in the morning and cardamom chai / Ginger Tea / Masala Chai in the evening for the family. Homemade Chai Masala (recipe coming soon!) added to everyday tea leaves makes it aromatic, inviting.

Why not take that delicious tea masala into a bake? Eggless Banana Bread is baked regularly at home – in so many avatars:

  2. Mix the ground flax meal in the warm water and keep aside for 15-20 mins till it appears gooey / frothy

    A delicious and aromatic bake Kalyani. Love adding chai masala to my bakes and have also tried banana bread with it. Adding the spice mixture definitely makes it perfect for the festive season. Chai Spiced Banana Bread is a perfect option for Christmas breakfast.

    Banana Bread in a new avatar … flavored with chai spicce. I do make chai masala cake but a banana bread with chai masala is incredible. I love that you have used jaggery instead of white sugar. It’s indeed a guilt free treat.

    I am a big fan of banana bakes in form and I am literally drooling over the screen. I had made something similar and it reminded me of that bake. Aren’t bananas so forgiving? I could eat them as breakfast and snack… hehe…

Thanks so much for dropping by.
