Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Vegan Banana Bread


2/3 cups boiling water
2 tbsp ground flax seed
2 cups organic whole wheat pastry flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup Turbinado (What's this?)
1/3 cup agave nectar (What's this?)
1/3 cup coconut oil
Pinch of ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk
3 medium ripe bananas, mashed
1/3 cup walnuts chopped finely (optional)

- Pre-heat oven to 350°
- In a high-speed blender, whip together the flax seed and boiling water for 20-30 seconds until it becomes gelatinous. This will be your "eggs."
- Sift together the flour, nutmeg, baking soda and baking powder. Add sugar, agave nectar, coconut oil, almond milk, and bananas. Mix thoroughly using a counter-top or hand-held mixer.
- Fold in walnuts if desired. Bake at 350° for about 45 minutes or until you can stick in a toothpick and pull it out with nothing sticking to it. It is yummy with a little almond butter on it or a fruit spread.

You can also make vegan banana muffins by using this batter with muffin baking tins. Pour each cup in the tin to about 2/3 full and bake at 350° for about 35 minutes.
