Vegan Plantain Bread

This vegan plantain bread recipe is so easy to prepare, I basically substituted plantains for bananas in my favorite banana bread recipe. 

Process the bananas in a food processor and add them to the mixture of gluten-free flour, sugar, baking powder, and spices. Next, add almond milk, coconut oil, and vanilla, and mix everything to form a batter. Bake the plantain bread until it achieves a perfect tender crumb.I enjoyed mine served with Vegan Pumpkin Caramel Sauce.

Plantain VS Banana

Plantains are related to bananas except that they are lower in sugar and starchier than bananas. Due to the starchier nature of plantains, they are usually eaten after being cooked, unlike bananas that are eaten raw when ripe.

Plantains are treated more like a vegetable and are mostly prepared as a side dish. They are traditionally prepared, fried, boiled, baked, My plantain bread recipe is one of the few times that it is served as a dessert.
