Vegan Banana Bread
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 1 loaf, 2 mini-loaves
  • ¼ cup butter, vegan butter, or oil
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup almond milk or milk of your choice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1½ cup whole spelt flour or whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup white spelt flour or all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 large ripe bananas, mashed (about 1.5 cups)
  • A few handfuls of chopped walnuts (optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray one loaf pan or two mini loaf pans with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Whisk the room-temperature butter with the sugar, milk, vanilla, and apple cider vinegar.
  3. In a separate bowl, sift together the flours, baking soda, baking powder, and salt and set aside.
  4. Gently stir together the dry and wet mixtures. Fold in the mashed bananas and walnuts, if using. Don’t over-mix, stir until ingredients are just combined to avoid dense bread. Pour the batter into the prepared pan(s). Top with a few extra walnuts.
  5. Bake for 30-50 minutes depending on your oven. Bake mini-loaves for 25-30 minutes.
I prefer mini-loaves because I find I can get them to bake more evenly throughout than full-sized loafs.
