  • loaf pan
  • mixing bowl
  • parchment paper or oil for greasing



  • 2 large bananas over-ripe + mashed
  • ¾ cup coconut sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup egg replacer see notes
  • ¼ cup walnut oil another vegetable oil can be subbed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon ground
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 cups bread flour

Fold in:

  • ½ - 1 cup walnuts raw, chopped
  • 1 cup vegan chocolate chips


  • ½ - 1 medium banana sliced long ways


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a loaf pan with parchment paper.
  • Add all the wet ingredients to a large mixing bowl and mash and whisk together.
  • Add in the dry ingredients and whisk (or use an electric mixer) until combined and fluffy. Mixture will be slightly chunky from the mashed banana.
  • Fold in the walnuts and chocolate.
  • Pour batter into loaf pan. Add optional banana slice(s) on top.
  • Bake at 350 for 55-65 minutes or until loaf passes the toothpick test.
  • Pull loaf from oven and allow to cool for at least ten minutes before lifting parchment paper from pan. Cool for another 10-20 minutes before slicing and serving.
  • Store leftovers in the fridge for up to a week. Freeze for longer storage. Serve chilled or warm, whatever your preference. I love cold banana bread from the fridge!


egg replacer: I would use either JUST Egg or silken tofu, pureed + an extra pinch of salt
serving size: I like to thickly slice thos loaf, then slice each slice in half to serve. That way you can have 1-2 servings. Yeah, I usually end up eating the whole slice, but sometimes just a half slice does it!
