Not Your Mother's Banana Bread
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 Ener-g or flaxseed egg replacement (1 1/2 teaspoon Ener-g mixed with 2 tablespoons warm water OR 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed mixed with 3 tablespoons warm water OR skip the egg replacement completely)
1 cup mashed bananas (2 small)
3/4 brown sugar
1/4 cup safflower or organic canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup vegan chocolate chips, like Ghirardelli semi-sweet
Poor Banana Bread! No longer the sexy treat of 70s hippies; it lost it's popularity to lemon poppyseed muffins in the 90s, scones in the aughts, and to innumerable green smoothies today. However, sometimes it's nice to bring back an old fashioned favorite. This recipe is updated with the addition of cinnamon and chocolate chips, but remains just as moist and comforting as always.
I couldn't help but include this second picture. If you look closely, you'll see a Reuben photobomb.
