  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup walnut pieces


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
  • Whisk together mashed bananas, brown sugar, oil and almond or soy milk.
  • In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the banana mixture and stir until evenly blended. Stir in the walnut pieces.
  • Pour batter into the prepared loaf tin, and spread to level.
  • Bake the banana bread for 45-50 minutes, until a tester inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean. Cool the loaf for 20 minutes in the pan, then turn out to cool completely.
