Healthy Banana Bread, Vegan Option
The only Banana Bread recipe you need!
This healthier banana bread is going to be your new favorite. Gluten free, moist and full of flavor. You can even make it vegan by subbing the eggs for 1/2 cup of applesauce!
Banana bread was the most shared recipe in 2020. I guess while everyone was quarantined at home they were craving banana bread! I don't think the trend is going anywhere in the new year so I'm leaving this delicious banana bread recipe for you here to stay.
I love making gluten free banana bread with almond flour for a little nutty taste. Almond flour is my favorite to cook with - find the brand I use HERE.
For this banana bread recipe I added gingerbread chocolate chips to make it a little festive for the holiday season. You can make this gluten free, vegan banana bread without chocolate chips if you'd like! You can also add any nuts or candies that your heart desires to this banana bread and it will still turn out! Sometimes I like to add a scoop or protein or collagen for some extra nourishment.
