This decadent banana bread tastes like the kind that you could buy in a coffee shop. The bread is moist, with chopped walnuts thrown into the mix to add variety to its texture. There are so many ways to enjoy a slice of this banana bread: fresh out of the oven, for breakfast the next morning, toasted with a spread of vegan butter, and, of course, with a cup of black coffee.
