4 medium overripe bananas, peeled
1/4 c. almond milk
5 T. vegetable oil
2 t. pure vanilla extract
1/2 c. sugar
2 c. all-purpose flour
2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
1 c. chocolate chips
1/2 c. almonds, chopped
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Line a standard 8 x 4 inch loaf pan with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, mash bananas with a fork.
Add almond milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract. Whisk to combine.
Add sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt. Gently mix until flour is incorporated and the mixture is mostly smooth.
Using a spatula, gently fold in chocolate chips and almonds.
Transfer the batter into prepared loaf pan. Bake 50-60 minutes or until deep golden brown and thoroughly cooked in center. Check doneness by inserting a toothpick or cake tester into center of loaf. It should come out clean with a few moist crumbs.
Allow banana bread to cool in the pan on a wire rack for a minimum of 30 minutes before removing from pan and slicing.
