Vegan Banana Chocolate Chip BreadPrint this post
1 cup mashed very ripe banana
3/4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 tablespoons canola oil
1/3 cup soy milk
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup vegan carob chips
2 tablespoons hot water (boiled water or good tap water is fine)
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Mash the bananas in a LARGE mixing bowl until relatively smooth. It should take 3 small sized ones, or 2.5 regular. You can spoon them into a measuring cup to make sure, then return to the mixing bowl. Beat in the sugar, canola oil, milk and vanilla.
Now add the flour, baking soda and salt and gently mix just to incorporate (so only a few turns). It’s okay if there is some flour still visible, just be careful not to over mix at this point. Add the chocolate chips and hot water, and stir a few more times..there should be no flour at this point, but again don't over stir - we don't want gummy cake!
Lightly grease an 8×4 loaf pan with margarine or use a non stick loaf pan. Scoop batter into the pan, smoothing the top out a bit with a spoon. Bake for 35-40 minutes (depending on your oven's hotness). Use a butter knife to test for doneness (a clean knife and it's done, melted chocolate on knife doesn't cout) Let cool in pan and go at it!
