|Vegan Banana Bread|
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 cup canola oil
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 cup mashed bananas (about 3 6" very ripe bananas)
1/3 cup vanilla soymilk
1 tsp. vanilla (optional)
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
1.) Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly oil a 9 x 5" loaf pan.
2.) In a small bowl combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In a medium mixing bowl combine the oil and brown sugar. Stir in the mashed bananas, soy milk, vanilla and walnuts; stir only until thoroughly mixed.
3.) Spread batter evenly in the pan and bake for about 45 minutes (test at about 43) until the bread is a light golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.
4.) Let the bread cool in the pan for about a half-hour. Loosen the edges with a butter knife before gently turning the bread out to finish cooling on a rack.
5.) Store bread at room temperature in a covered container.
