Go Monkey for this Bread!

Chocolate Chip Walnut Banana Bread

Thank you Chef Auntie C for this modified family recipe. We love making it and even more eating it! No monkey-business here. Easy and delicious!

6 bananas (any stage of ripeness)
½ cup olive oil
1/3 cup of organic sugar (or ½ cup of agave nectar)
2 eggs (I used Energy Egg Replacer)
2.5 cups non bleached flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup walnut pieces
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (Trader Joes are vegan)

Mix the mashed up bananas with the oil, sugar, egg replacer.
Whisk in the baking soda and flour
Then add the walnuts and chocolate chips
Pour into 2 medium sized oiled bread pans or 3 smaller bread pans
Sprinkle top with more chocolate chips for us chocolate lovers
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes
Check center with toothpick
Let cool and slice and serve!

Big monkeys: 2 chocolaty thumbs up
Little monkeys: 8 gooey thumbs up
