Banana Bread for One

I eat a banana every day. Sometimes, I just can’t look at a bowl of cereal or a smoothie, though, and I have to burst out in happy banananess!

7 TBLSP flour
Large pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Small pinch of baking soda
A shake or two of ground ginger
2 ½ TBLSP sugar
4 TBLSP of mashed-up ripe banana
1 TBLSP melted vegan butter
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 TBLSP almond milk (optional, to moisten if necessary)
1 ½ TBLSP walnut bits
1 TBSPL chocolate chips
1 TBLSP raisins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a muffin tin (just two muffins) or mini-loaf pan with oil or cooking spray or line two muffin holes with paper.
  1. Mix the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, ginger, and sugar together in a small bowl.
  2. Combine the mashed banana, melted butter, and vanilla together in another small bowl. Stir the wet into the dry ingredients.
  3. Add milk by dribbles until it makes a wet and pourable batter that’s thicker than pancake batter and looser than bread dough. You may not need any milk at all, if your banana was moist enough.
  4. Add the walnut bits, chocolate chips, and raisins, and stir just enough to incorporate them. Don’t over work it.
  5. Pour into prepared pan. Smooth the top of the batter.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.

Allow to cool on a rack. It will deflate a little bit.
