There is a reason why banana bread is such a classic – it’s delicious and easy to make! Not only that, it’s a terrific way to use those bananas that always go soft and spotty before you eat them! If you’re anything like us you really don’t like to throw away food. Not only are overripe bananas OK for this recipe – they are a must! Additionally, we’ve made sure this banana bread is for everyone, with totally vegan and gluten-free ingredients!
We’ve played around with this mix a lot. As a result, we think we have the best vegan, gluten-free banana bread recipe around! If you wish there were more easy, plant-based snacks on hand to fuel your week, then this recipe is for you!
Let’s get Nutty | Banana Bread without Oil!
That’s right – we’re going to get a little nutty here. But don’t worry, it will all make sense. Instead of using an oily vegan “buttery spread”, or actual oil, we’re adding almond butter. This makes our bread moist and adds a nutty “oomph” without the empty fat from a dose of oil.
Even Nuttier | Make Banana Bread Gluten-Free!
We also have oat and almond flour in this recipe, which makes it gluten-free! Of course, flax eggs bring the whole thing together to make a loaf that is moist with a nice crumb – all without wheat flour.
Let’s just get ALL the Nuts!
Have you ever noticed how well walnuts and bananas go together? Well, that’s why we loaded them into our recipe! In addition, walnuts work even better mixed with some those tasty baking staples – cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. We’re not adding coffee, another one of these baking “Super Friends” – but that’s because we hope you pour one to drink with your banana bread!
How to Store Banana Bread
This recipe is also a great snack to make ahead of time. It will keep for 2 days to 3 months depending on how you store it. In all cases, make sure you wrap it tightly in plastic, foil, or seal it in an airtight container. Otherwise, it’ll be dry by the time you eat it.
- Room Temperature: your banana bread will keep for 1-2 days.
- Refridgerator: the fridge will keep your banana bread fresh for up to a week.
- Freezer: frozen banana bread will last up to 3 months.
Go Bananas on the Go!
With all these storage options, banana bread is obviously great for meal prep! It also slices really well, meaning it can travel to work, school, picnics … wherever there is a need for tasty treats!
So what are you waiting for? Turn on that oven, mash those bananas, and flip on the kettle – because with this easy recipe it will be “banana bread and coffee time” before you know it!
