Chocolate Chip-Nut Banana Bread!

A stick-to-your-ribs kinda banana bread! :)   Everyone who tried it loved it - hope you will too!

Here's what I did:

(I made a double batch, but you'll need an 8x4 bread pan).  Preheat oven to 350 degrees; spray pan with non-stick spray.

3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup margarine, at room temperature (I used Earth Balance)
4 very ripe bananas, mashed
2 cups of flour (I used 1 cup white, 1/2 cup whole wheat, 1/2 cup spelt)
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup vanilla almond milk (or any non-dairy milk mixed with 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar - it will curdle don't worry!)
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. almond extract, optional
1 tbsp. chia seeds, optional
1/3 cup flaxseed meal, optional
chopped walnuts
vegan chocolate chips

Mix flours, baking soda and salt together and set aside.  In a large bowl cream together sugars & margarine.  Then add in milk, bananas and vanilla; mix well.  Combine flour, etc. to the wet ingredients and stir until well combined.  Add in rest of ingredients and pour into pan.  Bake approximately 60 minutes or until knife inserted comes out clean.  Enjoy!
