Fudgey Banana-Walnut Brownies

1 - 12 oz. package semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup Spectrum Naturals Spread or non-hydrogenated spreadable margarine
1 1/2 cups unbleached flour
1 cup unbleached cane sugar
1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
3 medium bananas
1 t. vanilla
2/3 cup chopped walnuts

In a small non-stick skillet, cook together the chocolate chips and Spectrum Spread, stirring often, until the chips are thoroughly melted. In a bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. in a food processor or blender puree the bananas and continue to process for 2 minutes to make them light and fluffy. Add pureed bananas and vanilla to the dry ingredients and stir well. Add melted chocolate chip mixture and stir until batter is very smooth and then fold in chopped walnuts. Grease the bottom only of a 13x9 inch pan, pour in batter, and bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until center is set. Allow to cool completely before cutting in desired size pieces. *I like to make these a day before using, as it improves their flavor and texture.*

Yield: One 13x9 inch pan
