“Veganana Bread”

As I promised to some of you, here it’s my banana bread recipe, another vegan (eggless) recipe. Enjoy!!!! 

banana bread no egg

Recipe for: about 12 servings
Serving size: 1 slice
Calories per portion: 281kcal.
Total Cook and prep. time: 1hr. 15 min.


  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup of whole-wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp of baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp of salt
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 2 tbsp of ground flaxseed
  • 6 tbsp of water
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of sunflower oil (or canola, or coconut oil)
  • 1/2 cup of raisins
  • 1/2 cup of raw almonds (or peanuts, or walnuts)
  • about 1 tbsp of sweetened coconut flakes


  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees and spray with a non stick vegetable spray the a loaf pan (I used a 8.5inch loaf pan).
  2. In a small container mix the ground flaxseed and water and set aside. You will want to use it when it becomes gelatinous (this is what replaces the eggs).
  3. Chop the almonds, but not too much. Set aside with the raisins.
  4. In a bigger container mix all the dry ingredients except the sugar (all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt)
  5. Mash the bananas with a fork and add them in another container together with the sugar and wet ingredients (sunflower oil, mixture of flaxseeds and water and vanilla extract)
  6. Mix dry and wet ingredients. When mixed add raisins and almonds. (I used my Kitchen Aid Artisan Mixer in speed 2)
  7. Put the butter in the loaf pan and sprinkle the top with coconut flakes.
  8. Leave in the oven for exactly 1 hour (check with a toothpick, it should come out clean). Let cool down before cutting and eating.
