Description

Easy 5 ingredient vegan banana bread made with almond butter and spelt flour. Naturally sweetened and oil free, it’s the perfect treat to have on hand for a quick breakfast or healthy snack.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 2/3 cup (400g) mashed ripe bananas
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup (85g) almond butter, see notes
  • 1 3/4 cup (210g) spelt flour (wholemeal, all-purpose, or gluten free blend)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • optional: 1 teaspoon each vanilla + cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F/ 160°C (fan forced) and line a loaf pan with baking paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the bananas, nut butter, maple syrup and vanilla (if using) until creamy.
  3. Mix in the flour, baking powder, cinnmon and salt, and mix until just incorporated (you can also mix in some chocolate chips or chopped nuts if desired!). Do not overmix. The batter will be slightly thick and a few chunky bits of banana is OK.
  4. Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake for 50 – 55 minutes or until cooked through. Stick a toothpick in and when it comes out clean – it is ready!
  5. Let the bread cool in the loaf pan for 10 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool for 30 minutes before slicing.

Notes

  • To store: this banana bread will keep well in an airtight container on the counter for 1-2 days, then I recommend transferring it to the fridge or freezer.
  • Freezer: Cut into slices and place in snap lock bags or freezer friendly bags for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge and bring to room temperature before serving.
