VEGAN CHOCOLATE CHIP BANANA
TO VEGAN CHOCOLATE CHIP BANANA SQUARES
To make vegan chocolate chip banana squares: start by peeling and mashing the bananas to make 1 cup of mashed banana.
Add the mashed banana, brown sugar, non-dairy milk, and vanilla extract to a large bowl and mix well. Stir in the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Lastly, fold in 1/4 cup of the chocolate chips (setting aside the remaining 1/4 cup to use in the next step).
