Easy Vegan Banana Bread

the-best-vegan-banana-bread

Hey my loves, welcome back!

Today I’m having a slow, cosy day as I decompress from the festive season, and focus on rest and healing. 

I’m not too good at sitting still, but on gloomy days like today, it feels so soothing to be snuggled up with my cats, sipping tea, and listening to my latest audiobook (currently ‘The Courage to be Disliked‘).

Earlier on, I made a loaf of banana bread, which is now baking in the oven, and is beginning to fill my home with its comforting, doughy aroma. 👌🏻

Over the past few years, banana bread has become a much-loved part of my diet. I love to have it for breakfast, and I always take some with me, when I go out running on the hills. (No more nasty sports gels for me!)

Although there are many different ways to make banana bread, my go-to recipe (that I’m sharing today) is the best I’ve ever tasted!

It uses wholesome, gluten-free oat flour (you can use plain flour if you’d prefer) and it’s suitable for vegans too.

It’s also packed with pecan nuts – which are incredibly high in antioxidants and add a wonderful, crunchy texture!

This delicious recipe is a really great way to use up any ripe bananas, and because this banana bread doesn’t contain yeast, it’s super quick and easy to make.👍🏻

How to Make Vegan Banana Bread

This deliciously sweet banana bread is a great source of dietary fibre, healthy carbs, good fats, vitamins and essential minerals.

To make this recipe, you’ll need:

  • 3 Medium-Sized Ripe Bananas
  • 1.5 Cups of Oat Flour
  • 1 Cup of Pecans
  • Half a Cup of Plant Milk
  • 3 Tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 1 Tbsp Baking Powder
  • 1 Tsp Ground Cinnamon

First, preheat your oven to 200°C (392ºF).

Then, mash your bananas with the back of a fork, and roughly chop your pecan nuts. (If you’d prefer, you can use chopped walnuts instead.)

Now, in a large mixing bowl, combine your mashed banana and chopped pecans, with the rest of the ingredients listed above.

Mix well, and then carefully pour your batter into a lined loaf tin.

How to Make Banana Bread

In this recipe, I’m using gluten-free oat flour – because I love the simplicity and taste of it – but plain flour would work as well!

Bake your banana bread for 35-40 minutes, until it’s golden brown. Then, once it has cooled, grab yourself a cuppa, and cut yourself a slice! 💖
