Making vegan banana bread is easy and delicious. Here's a simple recipe for you:


3 to 4 ripe bananas, mashed

1/3 cup of coconut oil, melted, or vegetable oil

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 cup almond milk or any plant-based milk

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup brown sugar, packed

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

If desired, you can add 1/2 cup of chopped nuts or vegan chocolate chips.

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)


  • Preheat the Oven:
Make sure your oven is fully preheated before placing the banana bread inside for even baking. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

  • Prepare the Pan:
Grease a 9x5 inch (23x13 cm) loaf pan.

  • Mash Bananas:

In a spacious mixing bowl, use a fork or potato masher to mash the ripe bananas.

Tip: Use Ripe Bananas: Ensure your bananas are ripe with brown spots on the peel. Overripe bananas are sweeter and add more flavor to the bread.

  • Add Wet Ingredients:
Add the melted coconut oil (or vegetable oil), vanilla extract, almond milk, granulated sugar, and brown sugar to the mashed bananas. Mix well.

Tip: Choose the Right Oil: Use a neutral-flavored oil like melted coconut oil or vegetable oil for a moist and tender texture.

Vegan Milk Substitute: Opt for a plant-based milk such as almond milk, soy milk, or oat milk. Choose an unsweetened variety to control the sweetness of the bread.

Sweeteners: Blend the sweetness by using a combination of granulated sugar and brown sugar. Adjust the sugar levels according to your taste preference.

  • Combine Dry Ingredients:

In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon if using.

Tip: Flour: All-purpose flour works well for banana bread, but you can experiment with whole wheat flour or a combination of flours for added nutrients.

  • Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:
Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet mixture, stirring until they are just combined. Be careful not to overmix.

Tip: Combine the wet and dry ingredients until just blended. Be cautious not to overmix, as it may result in a dense and tough texture.

  • Add Optional Ingredients:

If desired, fold in chopped nuts or vegan chocolate chips into the batter.

Tip: Enhance the flavor by adding chopped nuts, seeds, or vegan chocolate chips to the batter. This adds texture and extra yumminess.

  • Transfer to Pan:
Pour the batter into the greased loaf pan, ensuring an even spread.

  • Bake:
Bake in the preheated oven for about 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs.

Tip: You're looking for a clean toothpick or perhaps a few clinging moist crumbs when testing for doneness.

  • Cool:
Let the banana bread cool in the pan for 10-15 minutes, then move it to a wire rack for complete cooling before slicing.

Tip: Allow the banana bread to cool in the pan for some time before transferring it to a wire rack. This helps it set and prevents it from breaking apart.

Store the banana bread in an airtight container at room temperature for a day or two. For longer storage, keep it in the refrigerator or freeze slices individually.

Feel free to experiment with flavors. Add a dash of cinnamon, nutmeg, or other spices for an extra layer of taste.

  • Slice and Enjoy:

Once cooled, slice and enjoy your delicious vegan banana bread!
