Couscous and banana bread

Leftover whole wheat couscous with frozen vegetables, homemade banana bread, more grapes, and salted peanuts. My mom is awesome. As she's making banana bread she yells up to me, "Michelle, what should I do? There are eggs in this recipe!". As any hungry vegan good daughter would do, I went down and helped out.

Banana Nut Bread
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil
2 flax eggs (2 T ground flax + 6 T water)
1 cup mashed banana (about two ripe bananas)
1 3/4 cup flour
2 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1/4 cup coarsely chopped nuts

Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix together the sugar and flax eggs. Mix the mashed bananas, oil and nuts into the sugar mixture. At the flour mixture and combine. Pour into a 9x5 greased pan and bake at 325°F for one hour.
