Vegan Banana Bread

Vegan Banana Bread

After playing around a bit I have finally found a vegan recipe that makes good use of the ugly browning bananas sitting on my counter.  This recipe actually comes from a favorite site of mine Post Punk Kitchen.  I had to modify the recipe a bit because baking soda and I don’t get along well.  That and I don’t like baking with too much white flour.  If you’re interested in the original recipe here’s the link: http://www.theppk.com/recipes/dbrecipes/index.php?RecipeID=121

Personally, I like mine better but I’m grateful to them for providing me with a great base recipe to start with!

Ingredients

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cups white sugar

1/2 cup margarine, at room temp

3 very ripe bananas, mashed well

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup unbleached white flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 cup vanilla soy milk

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon cardamom

Optional add in’s: chopped walnuts, raisins, dried cranberries, chocolate chips (vegan chips!)

I go for a combination ¼ cup each nuts, cranberries and chips

Directions

Place sugars and margarine in the food processor and pulse until creamy

Add banana and soy milk blend well

Next add in the baking powder and spices and pulse quickly

Mix in flour one at a time, pulsing to incorporate then mix well for about 30 seconds

Add in extras and pulse until blended

Place in a bread pan and bake at 350 from 50 to 60 minutes until lightly browned on top
