Vegan Walnut Banana Bread
Bananas are a good source of vitamin B, vitamin C, and potassium? Ripe bananas are also very sweet, so they can be used in baked goods as a natural sweetener which means less added sugar required! Walnuts are also rich in omega-3’s and antioxidants, and eating healthy fats like nuts helps keep you fuller for longer!
- 1 cup unbleached all purpose flour
- 3/8 cup whole wheat flour
- 3 large overly ripe bananas
- 4 oz unsweetened applesauce
- 2 tbsp agave syrup (optional)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
In a large bowl, mash the bananas. Add the applesauce, agave syrup (for extra natural sweetness if desired), and vanilla extract. In another bowl, add all the dry ingredients and mix evenly. Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, and combine thoroughly.
Preheat the oven to 350 F degrees. Add the batter into a loaf pan lined with parchment paper. Add walnuts on top. Bake for 50 minutes.
