Vegan Banana Bread (No Nuts)
It’s taken quite a few recipes to find a good vegan banana bread that rises properly, isn’t fudgy and has a lovely texture plus doesn’t have nuts! I nearly succeeded with this lovely recipe from @frommybowl.
I swapped her recommendation for nut butter with Vitalite as I wanted a banana bread the children could take to school in a lunch box. No nuts allowed. I was pleased with the result although I had to keep putting it back in the oven to get it cooked all the way through.
Oven 350F is about 180 degrees Celcius. My oven tends to need longer so I set at 185 degrees and still had to put it back in three times. My bread took 90 minutes before a toothpick came out clean. The banana decoration suffered a bit for this. I should have used the tin foil much earlier!
I made it nut free by swapping the nut butter for Vitalite (vegan spread)
I used two big bowls for mixing like the recipe suggests but I think I could’ve saved time by mixing the wet ingredients in a food processor. You would then add wet ingredients to the dry bowl and mix
This recipe is also oil free
Try it toasted with peanut butter

This is an example of another banana bread I made recently (different recipe) which ended up all fudgy. There was half a cup of maple syrup in it too! Wasn’t cheap and didn’t taste great. Too heavy.
