Vegan Banana Bread with Cherries and Chocolate ChipsSeptember 10, 2018
(makes 5 mini breads (3-inch x 6-inch each) or 12 muffins)
- 2 cups white whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 large ripe bananas, mashed
- 1 cup nondairy milk (I use unsweetened soymilk)
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 1 cup frozen dark cherries, thawed
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Set aside 5 mini bread pans (each 3-inch x 6-inch), or line 12 muffin cups with parchment liners.
In large bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. In a medium bowl, mix together the bananas, milk, maple syrup, and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and mix until almost combined. Stir in chocolate chips and cherries.
Fill baking pans or muffin liners evenly. Bake breads for 24-28 minutes / muffins for 18-24 minutes, or until golden, and toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and transfer to cooling rack.
