Cranberry Cardamom Banana Bread

I have been under the weather for the past 4-5 days, which is a pity as it happenend right in the middle of vegan mofo. Food was more or less the last thing on mind, and I am slowly getting back to normal. Towards the end I had decided that enough was enough and proceeded to satisfy my sweet cravings by baking this low fat banana bread from Veganomicon

Its such a versatile and flexible recipe and it withstood the many modifications I made to it:

  • whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour
  • brown sugar in reduced quantities instead of granulated sugar
  • a bit of agave nectar instead of the molasses I didnt have on had
  • I threw in dried cranberries
  • I replaced the cinnamom and nutmeg with cardamom, my favorite spice

It turned out really moist, dense and delicious and was a great way to greet the weekend!
