Oil-Free Vegan Banana Bread

Oil-free Vegan banana bread. Enough said

It is oil-free

melt in your mouth moist

naturally sweetened with bananas and dates

& made with just a few wholesome ingredients


Plus it makes your kitchen smell like a dream. Win-win


Before I give you the recipe, I’ll share with you a little baking hack! No need to wait for your bananas to turn brown to make this decadent recipe. Turn any color banana into a perfectly sweet, ripe black with this simple trick



Turn underripe bananas into their sweet, ready-to- bake counterparts — simply bake them! Lay bananas on a baking sheet, and bake on 300F degrees for 15-30 minutes, depending on their ripeness. They will be ready once bananas are fragrant & have black, shiny skin.


The key to this recipe is making sure the batter is moist! You want to achieve a paste-like texture from the wet ingredients, like so

I find a food processor works best for this, this is the model I use and love!

Next, combine the wet and dry ingredients, but do so patiently. I like to add the dry ingredients in thirds. For every pour of dry ingredients, I follow with 1 T of nut milk mixed in. Repeat until all the dry ingredients are added and mixed. If batter is not moist, add in 1 T nut milk at a time

Bake for 45-50 minutes, careful not to over-bake. Test with a toothpick, making sure the toothpick comes out clean. Let cool and serve! PB drizzle is optional, but highly recommended 😉
