Vegan Banana Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Cardamom Bread

Banana bread with butter has always been one of my favorite breakfast treats or comfort desserts. I wanted to add a twist to the typical banana bread with walnuts & think its pretty delicious. I have a thing for cardamom & try to add it into recipes often. It reminds me of shopping at the Indian markets when I lived in nyc & would get the cardamom pods to crush open to make fresh chai tea. The flavor in the bread is very light so don’t be fooled by the powerful smell of it in the batter.
