Berry Banana Bread

I decided to create this banana bread with berries, the taste was so amazing! It's an upgraded version of my awesome Vegan Gluten-Free Banana Bread recipe. The taste was amazing with berry flavor in every bite. 
My husband was so happy when he came home that evening because I made his favorite banana bread.

 I added the new protein powder and fresh berries I had recently bought from the farmers market. He was now curious to taste it. He too was blown away and very impressed with how the recipe turned out and in no time the bread was all gone! This is the only banana bread with mixed berries you will need.

Before making this bread, I wanted to use the best ingredients I could find. I decided to go to one of our local farmers market here in Gainesville,  Florida. This time of year, the Gainesville farmers market was in full swing with over 60 vendors (farmers and artisan) who come to the market on a weekly basis all year round.

Moving here from Ohio, I was so happy to be able to attend an outdoor market all year round.  I was overjoyed with the market's family-oriented atmosphere.  My son Daevyd, who is seen below playing really enjoyed himself as you can see. I found the most delicious organic strawberries and blueberries for my banana bread recipe. I got to meet the local farmers who were friendlydaevyd

How Do You Make Vegan Banana Bread?

I decided to make the loaf bread without added oil because I used coconut oil in the glaze. The mashed bananas and raspberry glaze were enough to produce a super moist loaf of bread.

Preheat oven 375 degrees. Prepare loaf pan and set aside.

In a small bowl, mix flax seeds and water, set aside for 5 minutes. In a large bowl, combine rice flour, almond meal, coconut sugar, baking powder, protein powder, and salt.

Combine almond milk, bananas, vanilla, flax seed/water mixture, and salt. Stir together wet and dry ingredients until fully combined. Fold berries into batter gently. Spoon batter into prepared loaf pan.

Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until the toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Remove from oven and place on a cooling rack until completely cooled.

Make the glaze and brush over your banana bread and serve.
