Vegan banana bread recipe made with wholesome, simple ingredients.
It’s your favorite classic banana bread but with no dairy or eggs!
I already have several recipes for banana bread on this site, but today I’m sharing a special vegan version.
Many of my recipes are vegan, and I wanted to show just how easy it is to make something like the classic banana bread still taste amazing without dairy or eggs!
I normally make my banana bread dairy free, so the only thing I needed to replace was the eggs.
Finding an egg substitution is one of the hardest parts of vegan baking.
For this vegan banana bread, I simply used a combination of extra mashed banana and applesauce and it came out perfect!
How to make vegan banana bread
First, whisk together your dry ingredients, whole wheat pastry flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon.
In another bowl, beat your mashed bananas, maple syrup, applesauce, cane sugar, and vanilla extract.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet, and stir with a rubber spatula until just combined, and no streaks of flour remain.
Grease a loaf pan with dairy free butter or olive oil spray, and pour in the batter.
Bake at 350 degrees for 50 – 60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out mostly clean.
Allow to cool before removing from the pan, then cut into slices.
Serve warm or cold, with a smear of your favorite vegan butter for extra deliciousness!
