The BEST Vegan Banana Bread

I've tried many a banana bread in my day and I have to say, this one takes the cake. It's vegan, sugar-free, and totally customizable. Some of my favorite ways to mix things up are adding in dark chocolate chips, blueberries (pictured below), shredded carrot/zucchini, or pumpkin. But the possibilities are literally endless. This loaf also freezes super well, so I like making a couple at a time to have on hand for easy breakfasts! Simply top with a drizzle of almond butter, honey + cinnamon - the best. Recipe below!!

  • Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup applesauce

  • 1/2 cup maple syrup

  • 2 flax eggs (2 tablespoons flax + 5 tablespoons water - let sit for 15 min in fridge)

  • 4 large ripe bananas
