And on the vegan recipe. When I first went vegan, the first thing i ever made was banana bread. Its easy, fun and amazingly delicious. Everyone I gave it to loved it and I never mention the fact that It was "lacking" any dairy.

Banana Bread


1 3/4 cups flour

1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup mashed bananas (Takes 2-3 Bananas)
1/2 cup vegetable Oil
equivalent of 2 or 3 Eggs (check for a few awesome egg replacement recipes if you don't have your own)
1/3 cup soy-buttermilk*

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Mix flour, vegan sugar, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl.
Mix bananas, oil, and buttermilk* in a medium mixing bowl.
Combine the banana mixture with the large bowl containing dry ingredients, and stir well. Add the Ener-G Egg Replacer in now, and stir well again. (Optional: add 1/2 cup pecans).
Pour into a greased 9x5 inch bread pan.
Bake in 325 degree oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until a toothpick in the middle comes out clean.
*To make buttermilk, combine 1 cup soymilk with 1 tablespoon of vinegar. This can be used on a 1:1 ratio with buttermilk, so 1/3 cup of this = 1/3 cup buttermilk.
Feel free to get creative with this recipe too. Chocolate Chips, fruit chunks, the sky is the limit!
Serves: 10
Preparation time: 1.5 Hours
So, until next time, love your life and ride your bike
