  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and oil a 8 ½-inch by 4 ½-inch loaf pan.
  • Mix the flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder in a bowl.
  • In another bowl, mix the oil, sugar, molasses, if using, flax eggs, apple cider vinegar, applesauce or yogurt, and mashed bananas.
  • Add the banana-sugar mixture to the dry ingredients and mix well until just combined and you don't have any dry flour in the bowl.
  • Fold in the chopped nuts.
  • Pour the batter into the loaf pan and spread evenly. Bake about 50-55 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean.
  • Cool on a rack for about 10 minutes and then unmold and let cool completely on a rack.
