Yield: 1 large loaf
Prep: 10 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
2 cups unbleached flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup sugar
2 flax eggs (2 tbsp. flax meal+5 tbsp. water)
1/4 cup applesauce
3/4 cup almond milk
1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
2 bananas mashed
3/4 cup chopped walnuts

Combine almond milk and apple cider vinegar in a small bowl and set aside for five minutes to make vegan buttermilk.
In a bowl cream sugar, applesauce and flax eggs together.
In another bowl mix flour, baking powder and salt together.
Add baking soda to buttermilk mixture and stir.
Add buttermilk mixture into creamed mixture and stir.
Slowly add flour mixture and stir just until incorporated. Do not over mix.
Fold in mashed banana and walnuts.

Let the bread cool before storing.
*Quick breads should only ever be cooked in a metal (preferably light in color) loaf pan or aluminum pan. This helps the bread to cook evenly.
*Make sure you do not over mix this batter like with most it won't be quite as fluffy if you do.
*This does freeze well. Pro tip, warm in the microwave and serve with a light slather of butter.
