Vegan Apple Banana Walnut Bread| Recipe

Updated: Feb 12



Prior to starting my transition to a plant based diet the extent of my baking consisted of prepackaged box mixes. I very rarely baked anything from scratch. At least not in a very long time. But in spite of that I have been on this subtle mission to successfully bake something...anything vegan. My first few attempts have been utter failures. From pancake flat cake to bread that looked beautiful but tasted disgusting.



Then today happened. And it has been a long time coming. Finally, I have been able to combine together a mixture of yummy ingredients and create a delicious bread that I am telling myself not to eat all in one day. Its full of comforting flavor and homemade goodness.


To make this recipe I started with a base recipe and then made several changes to make it my own. I needed something to work with to give me an idea on proportions.


The first time I tried making vegan banana bread I used a recipe exactly and it was not good. Like real bad. I am not sure if I got the Tablespoon and Teaspoon part wrong but something happened. Or didn't. I ended up throwing the entire thing away. But I was determined to try again.


And this time it worked. What is so amazing to me is how its actually possible to create something without using eggs. Its as if we have been lied to all this time that eggs are required. Today I discovered for myself that that is not the case.


Here is the recipe:


Vegan Apple Banana Walnut Bread

Wet Ingredients:

3 Very Ripe Bananas

1 Small to Medium Sized Granny Smith Apple

1/2 cup Apple Sauce

1/2 cup Almond Milk

1 cup Cane Sugar

1/4 cup Molasses

1/2 cup Olive Light Oil

1/4 cup Pancake Syrup

1/2 tsp Vanilla


Dry Ingredients:

1 3/4 cup Oat Flour

1 1/4 cup White Flour

1 tsp Pink Himalayan Salt

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

3 TBSP Flax Meal

2/3 cup Walnuts Chopped

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp allspice



Directions:

Combine wet and dry ingredients to create a batter. Feel free to do a taste test to insure everything has combined well and tastes sweet enough. The great thing about vegan baking is that you don't have to worry about eating raw ingredients.


Once combined pour the batter into a baking dish that has been lined with parchment paper or greased. And bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake for 1 hour and check it with a toothpick. Continue baking until it is done. When I made this I baked for 1 hour and 10 minutes. However, I could have allowed it to bake another 10 or 15 minutes because this makes a lot of mixture. You may also choose to split this and use 2 baking dishes. If so, you will need to adjust the baking time.
