Vegan Fluffy Banana Bread with Peanut Butter
Yes, I did it. I’m one of the crazy amounts of people who went bananasfor Banana Bread (did you get it??). Today, I’m sharing my beloved fluffy banana bread recipe featuring our favourite peanut butter!
I know there’s a lot of competition out there for the best banana bread these days. But my confidence knows no boundaries and I’m throwing my recipe at you as well — you’ll be the judge.
I recommend not swapping the flour for gluten-free one. It won’t work as well and you’re banana bread will have a hard time staying in shape. However, you can purchase our Banana Bread Mixes for a GF recipe!
-400gr of flour
-100gr of caster sugar or brown sugar
-1 tsp of baking powder
-A pinch of salt
-Half a tsp of baking soda
-2 tsp of chia seeds
-130ml of sunflower oil
-150ml of any plant-based milk
-2 tbsp of peanut butter
-2 ripe bananas
Place all the dry ingredients in one bowl and mix it all together.
Add the chia seeds and mix them in.
Add your sunflower oil and plant-based milk to the dry ingredients and mix it all with a spatula.
At this point, the dough will look a bit dry. Don’t add any more oil or milk, but some water as you need it. Keep adding and mixing until you get the right consistency.
Add the peanut butter and mix it in.
Use only one and a half of the bananas for the mix (you will be using the other half as a decoration on top). Just make sure to cut the half by the long side.
Smash the bananas with your hands into the bowl with the rest of the ingredients. Mix everything together.
Take your banana loaf tin. Either grease it with plant-based butter and sprinkle some flour on top or line it with some oven-proof paper
Pour your dough evenly into the loaf tin and add the left half banana on top. Bake it in the oven for 50minutes at 160-180 degrees.
