Walnut Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

What happens with bananas once they turn brown?  One thing is for sure, nobody in my family will eat them anymore.  So what do you do?  Make banana bread - I know it is hardly a groundbreaking idea.  I have tried to make it on several previous occasions, but it just never turned out in a way that everyone in my family loved it.  Well, that was until yesterday. Yes, finally - delicious, Galactosemia safe, banana bread that everyone in my family loves

they actually love it so much, that it is gone within 24 hours :)

I adapted the recipe from the Joy of Cooking

It is quick, easy, delicious, and takes about 1 hour in the oven.

You need

1-1/2 Cups of flour
1-1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2    teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of sugar
6 tablespoons of Earth Balance or other vegan butter
1/4 teaspoon of lemon extract
2   eggs
2-3 bananas
2/3 cup of finely chopped walnuts
1/2 cup of dairy free chocolate chips

*Preheat oven to 350 F
1. Cream sugar, vegan butter, and lemon extract together
2. Add on egg at a time
3. Add mashed bananas, or if very ripe add one at a time until well blended in
4. Mix together flour, baking powder, and salt
5. Add flour mixture in 1/2 cup increments to the dough.  Mix in well before adding another 1/2 C
6. Add walnuts - or other nuts and blend well into dough
7. Add in chocolate chips
8. Pour batter into a well greased loaf pan, and bake in preheated oven at 350F for about 1 hour, or until
    toothpick comes out clean
