Vegan Banana Bread - No Oil or Refined Sugar!

This is the best vegan banana bread that I have ever made! Exactly how a banana bread should be: moist tender crumb, not too sweet, and not overly dense like other vegan breads I have made. You won't believe there are no eggs or oil in here! 

I stumbled across this recipe on Fat Free Vegan Kitchen. Check out the original recipe that I adapted here.


3 large over-ripe bananas
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/3 cup soymilk or apple sauce
1/3 cup agave nectar 

2 cups flour white or wholemeal 
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup of desiccated coconut (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 170C. Spray or wipe a loaf pan with oil.

2. Mix the soymilk with 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice and let stand until it curdles. (If using apple sauce, skip this step and add the lemon juice to the bananas.)
3. In a large bowl, mash the bananas and add the remaining lemon juice, soymilk, and agave nectar. Stir well to combine. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, soda, and salt. 

5. Add the dry ingredients along with the coconut to the banana mixture, and stir just until the mixture is well-combined.
6. Spread the mixture evenly in the prepared pan and bake until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 30-40 minutes. 

Serve hot with a nice cuppa! 

And try not to eat the whole loaf at once, hehe :)
