2. Mash bananas in medium bowl with fork. Add maple syrup, applesauce, whipped tofu, and vanilla. Make a slurry (a thin mixture of liquid, usually water, combined with a finely ground substance) with flax powder and 3/4 cup water. Add flax/water to banana mixture.
3. In another bowl, mix oat flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix just to combine. Add chocolate chips and stir again, just to mix. Do not over mix. Pour batter into prepared pan.
