Vegan Banana Bread

Thursday will be National Banana Bread Day and this recipe is my contribution. Growing up in the islands, banana bread was a staple. My mother would make banana bread almost every Friday and all my brothers and I would help her make enough for family and friends. I remember creaming butter and sugar by hand; she was not satisfied until the mixture was light and fluffy. Her banana bread was always moist and delicious.

This vegan recipe is a modified version of my mother’s. I use pineapple juice and coconut oil for a tropical flair. I also use whole wheat flour and flax seed for increased fiber; flax seeds were also used as egg substitute. I must say this tastes just as good as my Mama’s.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 cup turbinate sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbs ground flaxseed
  • 1 tsp non-alcoholic vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt


Directions:

In pan, about to be baked

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease loaf pan and set aside. Place flour, ground flaxseed, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. In a smaller bowl, combine pineapple juice, oil, and vanilla. Combine dry and wet ingredients and then stir in mashed bananas. Spoon batter into loaf pan and bake for 1 hour. Transfer to wire rack for 10 minutes to cool.

Fresh out the oven.

Ready to eat!

  3. I do all my baking on a heavy bottomed aluminium pan, and was wondering how the bread would turn out, but it was really good.
    I shared some with family and they could not believe it was vegan. Thanks for sharing the recipe, Michelle.
    I have seen your other recipes too, as I have the local ingredients will choose and let you know how it tastes.
    Good website.
