Vegan Banana Bread

Hiii guys !

Last week we had three black bananas in our fruit bowl. I tried my best to finish them with green monsters in the days before, but three is a difficult number of bananas to overcome! My mother was panicking that she would have to throw them away and she despises waste….

What is a girl to do?

Make banana bread of course. Yey! This is super easy and who doesn’t like to mash up bananas?

Adapted from Madhuram’s


2 cups Self raising flour

1/2 tsp Baking soda

1/2 tsp Salt

1/4 tsp Cinnamon

1/2 Sunflower oil

1/2 cup Brown sugar

1/2 cup White sugar

3 Bananas, medium size, mashed well

1/4 cup Non-dairy milk (I used almond milk)

1 tsp Apple cider vinegar

1 tsp Vanilla extract

1/2 cup Walnuts (chopped)



1. Combine the apple cider vinegar and the milk in a small bowl, and set aside.

2. Preheat the oven to 140 degrees C. (or your usual cake temperature) for 15 minutes. Line your loaf pans with grease proof paper. (I had three small 4″ loaf pans and it worked out perfectly).

3. In a large bowl combine the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.


4. In another large bowl mix the oil and sugar together well. Add the mashed bananas, vanilla extract and milk-vinegar mixture.


5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and combine well. Mix in the nuts.



Ipad in the kitchen.. 😉

6. Pour the batter into the loaf pans and place in the oven for half an hour or so, keeping an eye on when the banana bread turns golden.


7. And out of the oven….



This was actually a surprisingly successful first attempt at banana bread, luckily I had a tea party to take it to, and it was a hit! 🙂


This cake is bananas – b, a, n a n a s! Enjoy! 🙂

  1. Omg, drool worthy, looks delish! Great post Sonal! Banana bread is in my top 5 of fav baked goods! You’ve inspired me, I’m eating grain & refined/processed carbs free for the past 9.5 months. I need banana bread back in my life, off to the kitchen I go to experiment 🙂

    • Thanks Renee! 🙂 How did your experiment go? YOU’VE inspired me! Refined/processed carbs free for 9.5 months? That’s seriously amazing. You must feel great!

  2. Mmmm yum! I love freshly baked banana bread! The only thing better is freshly baked banana bread topped with peanut butter :)! I actually have a few ugly ass bananas that are a lost cause for normal consumption. Or in other words, bananas that are begging to be turned into something baked- thanks for the recipe, Sonal!

  3. Looks great although I do have to add a ton more of cinnamon like a couple of tablespoons. Yes seriously. 🙂 nice blog.

  4. LOL! It is an excellent way to get rid of bananas! Although another interesting way is to freeze them – makes for great smoothies, so next time when your nervous just peel them, cut in half, put in a freezable bag and stick it in the freezer……phew! 😉

  5. will definitely try out this recipe, looks delish. I bake banana breads but usually out of Trader Joe bought mixes. This one does not seem too difficult to follow so will try it out!!!
