Lil' Moma's Banana Nut Bread w/Chocolate Chips (VEGANIZED)

I TOOK MY MOM'S AMAZING BANANA NUT BREAD RECIPE AND VEGANIZED IT!!!
THEY TURNED OUT SO WONDERFUL AND MOIST!!!


Ingredients: 

2 Tbsp. of ground flaxseed (mixed with 6 Tbsp. of water let sit for 2 minutes)
1 cup of Organic Agave or you can use 1 1/2 cups of Sugar
1/2 cup of Oil (I am sure you can sub out no sugar added applesauce as well)
1/2 cup of filtered water
1 cup of mashed banana (about 2 large bananas)
1 3/4 cup of Organic Spelt Flour (or your own choice of flour)
1 tsp. of Baking Soda
3/4 tsp. of Salt
1 1/2 tsp. of Cinnamon
3/4 cup Chopped Walnuts
1/2 bag of Vegan Chocolate Chips (Optional! The ones from Whole Foods are incredible!)


1. Mix all ingredients together
2. Place in lined muffin tins or well greased loaf pans
3. Bake at 350 if using Sugar and 325 if using Agave
4. Insert toothpick to make sure they are done

For full size Loaf pan with Sugar: Bake for one hour
For regular size muffins with Sugar: 15-20 minutes
For Mini Loaves with Sugar: 20-25 minutes 
OR 
For full size Loaf pan with Agave: Bake for one hour +
For regular size muffin with Agave: 20-25 minutes 
For Mini Loaves with Agave: 25+ Minutes
NOTE: While baking with Agave be sure to keep checking on your baked goods. Agave items brown faster. Be sure to reduce the temp. by 25%
Made too many? Freeze them in an airtight container.
Nice and Brown!
I made Mini Loaves and Muffins

And wrapped them up with pretty bows (forgot to take a photo of the bows) and gave them away to my Vegan friends! PS. My Non-Vegan friends could not tell they were Vegan!

 After I gave some of these amazing treats away, a friend of mine hired me to bake some goodies for her colleagues! What fun!!! Making money for your joy is definitely a powerful feeling!!!
