Auntie Melanie's banana bread VEGANIZED!

My middle son loves his Auntie Melanie's banana bread, but with butter and eggs to contend with, I have not made it in a couple of years.  This week I decided to veganize this family favourite and here is what I came up with:
Vegan banana bread

1 3/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
2 teaspoons aluminum-free baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups ripe bananas; mashed (about 4 medium)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup vegan margarine or coconut oil
2 tablespoons nut, rice or soy milk
4 tsp. egg replacer + 4 tbsp. water
1/4 cup walnuts; chopped
1/4 cup vegan semi-sweet chocolate chips

In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  In a measuring cup combine egg replacer and water and mix well.  In another bowl beat bananas, sugar, margarine or coconut oil, egg replacer mixture, and milk on high for a minute.  Combine with dry ingredients.  If batter is too stiff add a little more nut milk by the tablespoonful. Stir in nuts and chocolate chips. Bake at 350°F for 55 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of loaf comes out clean. Cool for ten minutes on rack.

Yield: 1 loaf
