Put your overripe bananas to good use and make this delicious vegan Banana Bread with walnuts! I love having a slice of this for breakfast!
You know it’s gonna be a good day when you have banana bread in the fridge waiting for breakfast! You can add vegan chocolate spread, nut butter, or jam on top, but I mostly eat it plain because it’s so good and flavorful by itself. It’s also a great snack for traveling or to take to work/school/university/wherever you have to go.
Lately, I’ve been reading a lot on the healthy aspects of walnuts, so obviously I used this chance to add walnuts to the banana bread (and chocolate chunks!). They add such a lovely crunch and nutty flavor!
Of course, you can substitute the walnuts with different nuts, dried fruits, more chocolate, really anything you want in your banana bread. Go crazy!
Also, aren’t warm banana bread slices literally the best thing ever?! Mhhh!
Now stop looking at those poor, overripe, brown bananas at your kitchen counter already and start making this banana bread! And share it with all the people you love. <3
This banana bread is super easy to make. Just mash the ripe bananas in a bowl. Add the wet ingredients. Whisk. Add the dry ingredients. Whisk. Add the add-ins (walnuts and chocolate chunks). Whisk. Pour the batter in a baking pan. Bake. Eat. Repeat.
