TIPS

  • Purée a full package of Mori-Nu Silken Tofu Firm, then divide as needed for this recipe and other recipes. Refrigerate any remaining tofu.
  • Bananas should be super ripe with brown spots on the peel, but not rotten.
  • To mash bananas, simply peel them, then mash with a fork.
  • Pecans or macadamia nuts can be used in place of walnuts.
  • To prevent a soggy top, cut banana and strawberry slices thinly for garnish (about 1/4" thick), as they release a lot of moisture.
  • Fully cooled bread will be easier to slice.
  • PLANT-BASED: Mori-Nu Silken Tofu Firm is an excellent egg and dairy replacement in baked goods. It makes this banana bread moist while adding a nutritional boost.
  • GLUTEN-FREE: We used gluten-free 1-to-1 baking flour with great results! Mori-Nu Silken Tofu Firm is Certified Gluten Free
