Recipe: Vegan Banana Bread

Vegan Banana Bread

1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour or spelt (if you want whole grain)
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 cup canola oil
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 cup mashed bananas (about 3-6" very ripe bananas)
1/3 cup plant-based milk
1 tsp. vanilla 
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)


1.) Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly oil a 9 x 5" loaf pan.

2.) In a small bowl combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In a medium mixing bowl combine the oil and brown sugar. Stir in the mashed bananas, plant-based- milk, vanilla and walnuts; stir only until thoroughly mixed.

3.) Spread batter evenly in the pan and bake for about 45 minutes (test at about 43) until the bread is a light golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.

4.) Let the bread cool in the pan for about a half-hour. Loosen the edges with a butter knife before gently turning the bread out to finish cooling on a rack.

5.) Store bread at room temperature in a covered container.

Servings: about 10 slices
