Banana Bread (Vegan)

I *love* banana bread!

The other day I saw this unique banana bread recipe online and decided I should give it a try. As usual I took the original recipe as a 'suggestion' and was a little creative with it. The end result is not as sweet and moist as traditional banana bread. But pretty darn good for a vegan variation and the Maple Syrup makes it taste Canadian :)

Maple Syrup, Pecan, Chocolate Banana Bread

1 cup 100% Pure Maple Syrup
1/2 cup Earth Balance butter spread
2 tablespoons ground flax seed mixed with 6 tablespoons of water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup pecans
1/4 cup carob or chocolate chips

Add ingredients to food processor in order listed above
Mix ingredients until desired consistency and pecans and chocolate are shaved bits mixed in the dough
Bake at 360 degress for 50 - 60 minutes.
