People confuse themselves between banana cake and bread because of similar preparation. But, you must be able to distinguish between a bread and a cake.

Whole Wheat Banana Bread

In a bowl, mash bananas and prepare a smooth puree. Overripe bananas are best to bake this bread as they provide full flavor as well keep the bread moist? In case you do not have overripe bananas, there is nothing to worry. Just keep the bananas in the oven at 200 degree Celsius for 10 minutes.

Mashed Banana for Vegan Banana Bread

Add organic sugar to the banana puree and mix it well. I prefer to use less sugar for my bread as I love the natural sweetness that comes from bananas. If you like your bread sweeter then you can add up to ¾ cup of sugar.

Sugar and Banana for Vegan Banana Bread

Add oil to the banana sugar paste. You can use olive oil as well for this bread. However, I have used rice bran oil in my bread.

Vegan Banana Bread ingredients

Add Cinnamon powder, Nutmeg powder and Vanilla essence to the mixture and stir it well.  Choice of spices totally depends on you. Cinnamon goes well with banana. If you don’t like these spices then you can skip. But trust me cinnamon and nutmeg take this bread to another level.

Spices for Vegan Banana Bread

In a different bowl sift whole wheat flour with baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Now add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Fold gently.

Vegan Banana Bread Dry Ingredients

The batter would be thick just like dough for bread. Don’t make any liquid adjustments or add milk. The batter for banana bread should be thick. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 180 degree Celsius.

Batter  for Vegan Banana Bread

Add sunflower seeds to the batter and mix it. Take a loaf tin. Place a parchment paper in it. Pour the batter into it and with the help of a spatula, level it. Sprinkle chopped walnuts on it.

Let's Bake

Bake it in a preheated oven at 180 degree Celsius for 30 minutes or until it passes the toothpick test.

Once done, take the bread out of the oven and let it rest for 5 minutes before de-molding. If you de-mold the bread as soon as it comes out of the oven, you are risking your bread to break. Remember the baking is still happening within the bread because of the heat inside. It is still too tender for you to hold. Hence it is important to let the bread rest for at least 5 minutes before you de-mold.

    Hi Sonia, thank you very much for this recipe. I make banana bread almost every week and was looking for a recipe which was vegan and also used wheat flour. My search landed me here and I am very pleased with the result. Thank you for the detailed instructions – made it so much easier referring to the images as well. The bread is so soft and moist (i used 3 bananas) and the sweet level is just perfect – i used brown cane sugar. Cant wait to try other recipes 🙂

  • Hi Sonia… I just tried your receipe. It taste good, how ever wasn’t happy with the texture, thought the cake was a bit dry…even the batter was a bit dry compared to banana cake batters I have made before. What do u think I could have added to keep it a big moist or less dry.

  • Made today used organic coconut oil & organic brown sugar. Came out too good. Thank u very much. Please come out with more eggless baking….

    • This sounds fantastic. Thanks much for liking my recipe. Your suggestion noted. Keep visiting the blog, you will find atleast one new recipe every week.

    • Thank You Nitasha for your encouragement. This was my first experiment on Vegan bread. I am happy if you liked it. I have my multigrain experiment done and will be sharing Multigrain bread recipe very soon.

  • Ordinary refined sugar/brown sugar is usually processed with bone char, so it cannot be considered vegan. Any alternatives you would use?
