Vegan banana bread plus (soy) protein

I find that I’ve constantly modifying my banana bread recipe. This particular batch went like this:

2 ripe mashed bananas + some applesauce (I was short one banana)
1.5C whole wheat flour
1/2C brown sugar
2t baking powder
1t baking soda
1/2t salt
1/4C non-dairy milk of your choice
1/4C oil (I usually skimp a little)
2 heaping T flaxseed + 6T water (MAKE FIRST and let sit for a good 15 minutes to congeal and get a good “eggy” texture)
1/2C soy protein powder (or another vegan protein powder)
cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla to taste
I also threw in a dash of allspice in this one

Bake for about 40-45 minutes at 350. (Test at 40 and keep checking it.)

I found that the protein powder really helped the flax in acting egglike; usually I have some problems getting banana bread fluffy enough without eggs but this loaf puffed right up with the protein!

Happy baking!
