Vegan Banana Bread with Walnuts

Banana bread makes the perfect breakfast or morning snack, or really anytime snack. I’ve always got bananas in the kitchen that I don’t use fast enough and they ripen so quickly! Don’t waste them, this Vegan banana bread devils is super moist, egg and dairy free. Just a few simple ingredients bring this soft bread to life and fill your kitchen with the smell of baked banana sweetness!

I’ve added walnuts because it seemed like a perfect match but they can be replaced with your favourite nut, seed, berry or fruit pieces instead! Pecans, strawberries, chocolate chips or dried fruit would match perfectly also. Get creative with your loaf! This is just a classic style banana bread that is sure to be a favourite!


5 very ripe bananas

1 and 1/2 cups plain flour

1 and 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

pinch of nutmeg

pinch of salt

1/3 cup coconut sugar, or brown sugar

1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

3T chopped walnut pieces


1 Start by preheating your oven to 180ºC, greasing your bread pan (or line with baking paper) and chopping your walnuts into smaller pieces.

2 In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg and salt and set aside.

3 In a separate bowl, mash 4 of the 5 bananas. Make sure not to leave any big chunks. Small chunks are fine though.

4 Add the sugar and oil to the bananas and mix until evenly combined.

5 Once the oil and sugar are incorporated, gently fold in the dry ingredients just enough for everything to come together.

6 Now, gently fold in your walnut pieces or other additives

7 Pour the batter into your prepared bread pan.

8 Slice the last banana and place on top of loaf however you like, I lined mine down the middle to add a little something for the look of it!

8 Bake at 180ºC for 30-40 minutes, then test the bread with a toothpick for doneness. (it should come out clean) If the bread is still too moist bake at 10 minute intervals until done.

9 Store in an air tight container to keep fresh.

This loaf didn’t last long at my house, there’s something about fresh baked bread straight out of the oven that makes everyone want a piece, I hope it has the same result for you!
