Banana Walnut Bread

Posted by: Carol M.

Here is a recipe for Banana Walnut Bread from one of my readers. Carol’s into vegetarian, low-fat cooking, so I’m looking forward to trying this recipe.

She’s a very creative user of tofu, which I adore, so here’s Carol’s recipe–and I thank her for it!

For best results, use extra-ripe bananas. They are sweeter.

l 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
l/2 cup soy flour
l 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 ripe bananas, cut into chunks
1/2 cup vanilla soy milk
1/4 cup safflower oil
1/2 cup sugar
l/2 cup soft tofu, drained and patted dry
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Lightly oil a 9 X 5-inch loaf pan. Sift the flours, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl.

Place the bananas, soy milk, oil, sugar, tofu, and vanilla in a food processor and blend until smooth.

Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well. Fold in the chopped nuts. Fill the pan with the batter and bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

Cool in pan before slicing.
