Banana Bread w/ Dark Chocolate Chips & Walnuts

14 Oct

I got this recipe from my friend Dave (Happy Birthday!). He got the recipe fromĀ here except he adds chocolates & nuts to his version so I modified the recipe to how we make it at home. I made it a couple of times with chocolate soy milk & that was really yummy too.

[ Ingredients ]
– 1/2 cup turbinado sugar
– 1/2 cups white sugar
– 2 cups flour
– 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
– 1 teaspoon vanilla
– 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
– 1/4 teaspoon allspice
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 1 cup dark chocolate chips
– 1 cup chopped raw walnuts
– 1/2 cup Earth Balance organic buttery spread
– 3 very ripe bananas, mashed well
– 1/4 cup almond milk, mixed with 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

[ Process ]
– preheat oven to 350 F
– lightly coat an 8×4 bread pan with with margarine
– sift together flour, baking soda, salt and spices
– cream together the margarine and sugars.
– add bananas, almond milk and vanilla.
– add the wet ingredients to the dry except for the chocolate chips & walnuts, mix well.
– add the chocolate chips & walnuts, mix
– pour batter into pan
– bake for an hour to an hour 10 minutes.

Enjoy (& try not to eat all in one sitting).

i love banana bread. i’m intrigued that you used almond milk instead of regular milk, does that affect the texture a lot?

Hey Iris!

You know, I don’t remember how banana bread with regular milk tastes like. People who’ve had the one I make can’t tell the difference. I’ll give you some when I make more :)

MMMM I am glad you brought some over. I had Mike share some of his slice with me after you left :)
