California Cottage Banana Bread

19 Mar

I love making this bread because it is so moist and delicious plus it is a great snack to take along in my lunchbox for those days whenI want something sweet. Add fresh fruit to the slice of banana bread to give it that extra yumminess.  I use applesauce to replace the egg, soy milk to replace buttermik and vegan margarine to replace butter. You can add nuts or chocolate chips to the bread.  This recipe can also be used to make muffins.
