Vegan Banana Bread

I found another moist banana bread that is really good and is also vegan. (If you don’t care whether you use dairy or not, see the other recipe I posted by clicking here.)

This recipe was easy to make. I didn’t have “real” maple syrup so I substituted the “fake” syrup and it turned out just fine.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cups white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup plain soy milk or almond milk (I used almond)
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cups mashed banana, from about 4 large very ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Walnuts (optional, but I did not use them)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Lightly oil a 9″x5″ loaf pan and set aside.
  2.  In a medium-sized mixing bowl, sift together the flour, sugars, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the soy or almond milk and the cider vinegar and let stand for 2 minutes.
  4. Add the mashed banana, oil, maple syrup, and vanilla extract, whisking until well combined.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ones, mixing until just combined (do not overmix!).
  6.  Fold in the walnuts (if using) and pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan.
  7. Bake for about 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  8. Allow the bread to cool on a wire cooling rack for 20 minutes before serving.

That’s it! It took my loaf 70 minutes to bake instead of the 1 hour so check your bread around the 55 minute mark to see how its doing.

Another change I made was using 2 frozen bananas (in addition to the 2 ripe ones I had). I nuked them in the microwave for 30 seconds and added them (along with the juice) to the two other bananas then mashed them together.

More Ingredients

I know, the de-frosted frozen bananas look a little weird but I have found that when I use them (and the juices that they make) the banana bread comes out quite moist. I also like chunks of banana in my bread so I don’t mush them to death.

One piece or ??? We all had two pieces which were delicious. Especially when the bread is warm.
