One of my all-time favorite desserts has to be Banana Bread. I love all kinds of Banana Breads, but I especially like them if they have a crunch added like Chocolate Chips or Walnuts. So I decided to combine both for extra flavor and crunch! This Banana Bread is bursting with flavor, and even though I dislike this word, it’s also super moist (LOL). I hope you guys enjoy this recipe that I worked hard to recreate since its VEGAN, GLUTEN FREE and has NO ADDED SUGAR!
