vegan-licious banana bread
Towhdayh Ih wahtwehd—
...sorry my mouth was full...
Today I wanted to share one of my favorite go-to recipes that I tend to make kind of regularly. I use the ripe bananas that I didn't use up for my acai smoothies throughout the week. When I see I have 2 or 3 bananas that are at the end of their yellow-ness I whip out this recipe, which is not only delicious, but also vegan!
VEGAN-LICIOUS BANANA BREAD
1/4 c earth balance veggie-"butter"
1/4 c natural apple sauce
1 c organic natural cane sugar*
3 Tbsp milk (almond or coconut)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
3 ripe bananas
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
pinch sea salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 c all-purpose non-bleached flour
*If you have a preference, you can substitute a bit of the sugar with brown rice syrup. Here's a substitution I found for 1c sugar = 1 1/4 rice syrup plus 2 extra Tbsp flour and 1/2 tsp baking soda. I tend to just use an organic natural cane granulated sugar.
BONUS: you can also add some other healthy-boosters like a 1-2 Tbsps of flax or chia seeds- and then if the batter is a bit too dry add about 1 tsp of coconut oil.
Cream "butter", apple sauce, and sugar. Add milk, vanilla, and bananas. Add dry ingredients. Bake in greased loaf pan 350º for 1 hr or until done inside and browning on top.
EASY PEASY + extra good with a tiny bit of fruit preserves on top.
If you make it, please let me know how it went and if your taste buds thought it agreeable! xo
