Super Simple Banana Bread

As promised in my last post…

The original recipe from my friend Amy was non-vegan and it was a huge hit with everyone. It only required a few simple substitutions to make it vegan but I also used whole wheat flour and brown sugar. I think the flour made for a less “fluffy” texture but it was still the softest, most delicious banana bread I’ve ever made ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar or Sucanat
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup Earth Balance
  • 2 very ripe bananas
  • 2 tsp egg replacer* + 4 tbsp water
  • 1/3-1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life)

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 F and generously grease a loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, and baking soda.
  3. Melt the Earth Balance in the microwave to about 30 seconds to make it easier to blend.
  4. In a blender, mix the Earth Balance, bananas, and egg-replacer on high until smooth.
  5. Pour the blended banana mixture into the dry ingredients and stir until combined.
  6. Add in chocolate chips.
  7. Bake for 55-60 min or until a toothpick comes out clean.**
  8. Try not to eat the whole loaf in just 2 days ๐Ÿ˜‰

Notes:

*The most popular brand of egg-replacer is Ener-G but I found the PaneRiso brand at the local grocery store. One box = 100 eggs for about $9! Score!

**For muffins, bake at 350 for about 30 min.

Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚
