No Knead Cracked Wheat, Banana & Chocolate Bread

I tried making bread using some soaked cracked wheat yesterday along with some leftover over ripen bananas and few chopped dark chocolate pieces as a no knead version, this bread tastes truly fabulous, eventhough its goes for no kneading this bread turned out super spongy...This bread suits prefectly awesome for breakfast,for brunch at the same time even for snacks..This bread doesnt need any spreads to enjoy eventhough everyone at home enjoyed having this bread along with strawberry jam and honey..Healthy bread to enjoy anytime...Sending this healthy bread to Sanjeeta's WWC-Whole Wheat in Breakfast..
