Banana Bread (Vegan, WFPB)

This time of year I always love thinking back to holidays past and remembering some of my favorite traditions growing up. One of my fondest memories is sleeping in on the first day of holiday break, and being awakened to the smell of fresh bread coming out of the coming. Those are the type of memories that I wish to never lose, and hope to recreate with my own family for many holidays to come! When it came to the smell coming out of the oven, one of my favorite breads to wake up to was always banana bread. And so for this years WFPB holiday recipe collection I wanted to have a banana bread that I could wake my family up with and be enjoyed for breakfast. So I have created my own spin on a traditional banana bread recipe with just a few plant based ingredients that I hope you and your family will enjoy! Feel free to get creative and if you go ahead and give this recipe a try let me know what you think and share a picture on my facebook page of how it turned out for you.

Here's what you will need!

  • 4 extremely ripe bananas

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour

  • 1/2 cup water or plant based milk

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1 tsp baking powder

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl mash up the bananas into a smooth consistency

  2. Add in the remaining ingredients (except for the baking soda and baking powder)

  3. Mix everything together thoroughly

  4. Mix in the baking soda and baking powder

  5. Transfer to your baking tin

  6. Bake for 45 minutes @ 400 F

  7. Check with a toothpick to ensure it has been baked through

  8. If it still needs a few more minutes turn the heat down to 375 F for 10 more minutes

Enjoy!
