Very Vegan Banana Bread....until you add the Maple Butter.

In a search for something delicious every so often we come across that not so pretty pile of very ripe & brown the simple man these look ready for the trash can, but to the at home Chef, a fabulous reason to bake up something sweet!  

Winter makes me yearn for warm breakfast breads laced with crunchy nuts, chunky pieces of fruit, and the sweet smell of cinnamon.  This recipe was inspired by a need for a healthy treat, an empty fridge & 3 very ripe bananas that were in search of a purpose.  

Enjoy my Vegan Banana Bread...that is until you get to the last few shots, if you don't mind a bit of butter, those pretty pictures are just for you!

Vegan Banana Bread

3 Ripe Bananas
3 TBS Canola Oil
3 TBS Water
3 TBS Honey
1 1/2 Cups Flour
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2-1 C Chopped Pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Oil your loaf pan & set aside while you prepare your dough.

Mix together well, mashed bananas, oil, water, honey & brown sugar.  In a separate bowl mix flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, & pecans.  Combine all into dough & place in loaf ban.  Top uncooked dough with brown sugar & pecans.

Bake for 40-55 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean, time will depend on the heat of your oven.  

I served mine up with a little Brown Maple Butter I threw together!  Just whip up 1 stick of unsalted butter, a pinch of salt & 2 TBS each of brown sugar & PURE Maple Syrup.  Such a great little spread to have on handy for breakfast breads, french toast, or hot biscuits.

Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did, would even make for a wonderful edible gift idea for this Holiday Season upon us!  Please don't hesitate to leave your favorite Banana Bread Recipes & Links in the comment section....until then, tell me you don't just want to take a little bite???


  1. This is the kind of dessert bread I can eat w/o any guilt at all!! Beautiful!! xoxox

  2. This looks really wonderful. I do one with coconut. Seems like an odd combo but it works. Not vegan though. Yours looks so moist. I am loving the butter smeared all over it. Maple butter no less, you gotta know that appeals to the Canuck in me.
