  3. Use a spatula to spoon mixture into the prepared baking pan. Bake for 30 minutes, then remove and let cool for 10 minutes.
  4. To assemble, use the rim of a wide-mouth Mason jar to cut banana bread into rounds. Layer banana bread with spoonfuls of mousse, soy whipped cream, walnuts and banana slices. Top with whipped cream, more banana slices and walnut pieces.
