Ingredients

  • ½ cup vegan butter (Miyoko's brand is my favorite)
  • 4 ripe and spotty bananas
  • ½ cup brown sugar (packed)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds (mixed with 5 tablespoons of water)
  • ½ cup soy milk
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
  • Mix the ground flax seeds with 5 tablespoons of water in a mug. Set it aside to let it gel up.
    2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
  • Slightly melt vegan butter in microwave or on the stove. Don't fully melt it, just get it softened.
    ½ cup vegan butter
  • Mash bananas in a large mixing bowl. Add sugar, butter, soy milk, ground flax mixture and vanilla and beat with an electric mixer until butter is mixed in well
    ½ cup vegan butter, ½ cup brown sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds, ½ cup soy milk, 4 ripe and spotty bananas
  • Add in the flour, baking powder, and salt and gently mix with a spatula. Make sure not to over mix or it will make the bread too chewy. Fold in chocolate chips or walnuts if you'd like
    1 cup all purpose flour, 1 cup whole wheat flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, ½ teaspoon salt
  • Grease a bread pan & pour batter in pan. Sprinkle brown sugar on top. Bake for 60 minutes or until you stick a knife in and it comes out clean
  • Take out of the oven and let sit for 10 minutes before taking out of loaf pan. Transfer to a cooling rack after 10 minutes, to prevent the bottom from getting too soggy. Don't cut into the bread until it's cooled for at least an hour.

Notes

Don’t over mix the batter, once the flour is in. It will make the bread tough. Stir it just enough to fold in the flour.
Use super spotty bananas. The spottier, the more sweet. 
If you want to cut back on the butter, just use applesauce. 
Measure the flour correctly! Use the spoon and level method by scooping the flour out of the bag with a spoon, and putting it into the measuring cup. Then level it off with the flat end of a knife. Measuring like this ensures that you're not using too much flour.
If you would rather use oil instead of butter, just use ⅓ cup of neutral tasting oil like vegetable oil. 
To make this gluten free, use an all-purpose gluten free baking flour like from Bob's red mill
