I have an abundance of bananas in my house since quarantining. They are our go-to’s and we’ve been hoarding while others hoard toilet paper. So my weekly treats always have some bananas in them. Today, I morphed this recipe into a vegan and to work what I had on hand. It came out perfectly so I wanted to share. Would be lovely with some chocolate chips and/or chopped nuts. Because my husband is allergic to chocolate I omitted it.
3 tbl flax meal
5 tbl of water
2 large, overripe bananas, peeled and mashed
1/3 cup of melted coconut oil (I used refined)
1/4 cup of maple syrup
1/4 cup of coconut sugar
1/4 cup of nut based milk
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbl of vanilla extract
1/2 tsp of salt
1 tsp of ground cinnamon
1 3/4 cup of whole wheat flour
Optional: 1/3 cup of nuts or chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Spray your loaf pan with oil and set aside.
Into you stand mixer, add your flax and water. Mix to combine and allow to thicken for about 5 minutes. Then proceed to add the remaining ingredients in order from wet to dry. Blend until just combined. If adding mix-in’s … blend by hand. Pour your batter into your prepared pan and bake for 55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove and allow to cool for 30 minutes before slicing.
Sending all my love, ~ox
