1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup, lightly packed, brown sugar

1 1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas

3/4  cup buttermilk ( for a dairy free recipe, use 2/3 cup soy milk with one teaspoon lemon juice)

1/4 cup vegetable oil

3 teaspoons Egg Replacer prepared as per package directions. (If Egg Replacer is not available, do not add baking powder to flour.  Instead, add 1 level teaspoon baking soda to flour. Mix together 2 Tablespoons water, 1 Tablespoon oil and 2 teaspoons baking powder and whisk together with remaining ingredients.)

3 – 4 Tablespoons lightly roasted sunflower / pumpkin kernels

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract.

In a medium bowl mix together flour, baking powder and baking soda.

In a large bowl, whisk together mashed bananas, oil, prepared Egg Replacer or the substitute mixture given above, brown sugar, and buttermilk / soy milk with lemon juice for a dairy free substitute. Whisk until well combined.

Gently fold in flour mixture, a small quantity at a time.

When batter is ready, add sunflower / pumpkin kernels.

Pour batter into prepared pan, smoothing the top.

Bake for 50 –55 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
