Vegan Banana Bread


  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 5 tbsp water
  • 3 bananas large overripe
  • 1/3 cup vegan butter melted (or neutral-flavored oil or applesauce)
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 cups flour all-purpose (or whole wheat flour for a healthier result)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda


  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup mix-ins or toppings


  • Prepare and grease your loaf pan and preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Prepare your egg. In a small bowl, whisk together flaxseed and water. Set aside.
  • Peel and put all your bananas in a large bowl. Mash with a masher or with a fork until smooth.
  • Stir the melted vegan butter/oil/applesauce into the mashed bananas.
  • Add the "egg," almond milk, and sugar and mix well until combined.
  • Add the flour, salt, cinnamon (if using), and baking soda. Mix gently until combined. Be careful not to overmix the batter so as not to overwork the gluten.
  • If batter seems too thick, add a splash of almond milk.
  • Fold in walnuts or other ingredients. If you want to use these as toppings, skip this step.
  • Pour batter into your greased loaf pan and spread evenly. If using some toppings, sprinkle them on top of the batter.
  • Put the pan inside the oven and bake for 50 to 55 minutes. Test doneness with a toothpick; insert one in the center of the loaf. If it comes out clean, it's ready.
  • Remove from the oven and let it cool in the plan for a few minutes. Transfer the bread onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
