Banana Bread with Cherries and Chocolate Chips


  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 large ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup nondairy milk (I use unsweetened soymilk)
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 1½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup nondairy chocolate chips
  • 1 cup frozen dark cherries, thawed


  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Set aside 5 mini bread pans (each 3-inch x 6-inch), or line 12 muffin cups with parchment liners.
  • 2. In a large bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. In a medium bowl, mix together the bananas, milk, maple syrup, and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and mix until almost combined. Stir in chocolate chips and cherries.
  • 3. Fill baking pans or muffin liners evenly. Bake breads for 24-28 minutes. Bake muffins for 18-24 minutes, or until golden, and toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • 4. Remove from oven and transfer to cooling rack.
