You guys, this recipe is amazing and so versatile. It could be used for a quick treat, a perfect pair to a cuppa’ Joe, dessert or made for someone if you messed up and want to be forgiven. Don’t make that face at me, you know you’ve “made up baked” for someone before.
I have used this recipe endless amounts of times and I feel like I’ve finally perfected it enough to share it with you all. This Vegan Banana Nut Bread could be turned into a non-vegan dessert very easily, make sure to read the notes for my non-vegan peeps along with some tips and tricks I’ve learned.
** Extremely random share here, but I have to say that blogging with kiddos is not easy. I literally had to pray for patience in the middle of putting this together. I know this will be funny in about 15 minutes, at least I’m hoping so. I so had to share that real Mama moment with you all. With that being said, I hope you all enjoy this post now that you know that praying was involved just to finish it. Haha!
Besides praying, a lot of thought went into this recipe. My Husbands favorite dessert is Banana Nut Bread so there is obviously some pressure there…. what would make it even more nerve wrecking? The fact that he is NOT Vegan. He definitely enjoys all of the plant-based meals we make however he does occasionally enjoy meat. All that to say that he is my best critic. Since I have been plant-based for a while now, it’s great to know that all of my non-Vegan friends and family will still enjoy the recipes that I share.
Okay, so now let’s move on to sharing more about this recipe. I decided to make my own buttermilk and use ground flaxseeds instead of an egg because I wanted to make this BNB completely Vegan-friendly. I also wanted to make it to where it could easily be turned into a non-Vegan one. Just pick up a small carton at the store, they usually put the buttermilk in the dairy section where the coffee creamers are placed. Yes, I may go to the grocery store a little too often. As far as the flaxseed substitution, use one egg instead. In all honesty, I wouldn’t mind using the occasional egg for baking or cooking in general. However, we were all out of eggs since we never really buy them anymore. I thought my plans were foiled and then I remembered that I would be able to make an easy substitution. Thank you powerful omega-3 packed flaxseeds.
This is totally optional, but I love sprinkling rolled-oats, cinnamon and sugar on top and popping it back in the oven on broil set on high. Keep a close eye on it, do not… I repeat, do NOT step away from the bread or it WILL burn. Now that you have been warned, enjoy the next couple of photos of a deliciously browned banana nut bread. *wipes drool off of coffee table*
I truly hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as we do and it becomes a “go-to” dessert in your household. It is super easy to put together (especially if you have a mixer, it could all pretty much be done there). Please let me know which changes you made and share any photos. I love knowing that recipes I share are made in other homes besides mine, it still baffles me and makes me feel all sorts of happy vibes. I know there are millions of blogs out there, Thank you for choosing Get Fit for You.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by, see you on the next post.
