Simply the world's greatest loaf. For added sweetness, add 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to this recipe. (This recipe is from the cookbook "How It All Vegan.")

I have made this bread three times now and love it. I used honey instead of the sugar substitute. The second time I was out of lemon juice but made it anyway. It did not taste nearly as good. Always use the lemon juice! Today I used whole wheat flour instead of white. It is still good that way but the whole wheat taste overpowers the banana. Still very good.
