You don't have to give up everything to live the life of a vegan.

Preparation time: 1 hour 15 minutes
Yield: Makes 1 loaf

¼ teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
¼ cup soy milk
½ cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium size bowl cream earth balance and sugar with a wire whisk or electric mixer.
In a small bowl beat egg replacer with water until frothy.
Add replacer slowly to creamed mixture.
Add mashed bananas to mixture and beat until smooth.
Add soy milk to the mixture, beating on low speed until smooth.
In a separate bowl mix flour with baking powder, baking soda and salt.
