Easy vegan banana bread

Banana bread and I have been soul mates for many years now. I am not much of a cake eater but a slice of home-made banana bread that is crammed with brown sugar and cinnamon always has me reaching for the plate.

Many moons ago I blogged a traditional banana bread recipe (https://thehungrymum.com/2012/02/12/banana-bread-that-doesnt-cost-4-a-slice/) and I also loved this banana and chocolate bread recipe (https://thehungrymum.com/2013/04/11/donna-hays-chocolate-and-banana-bread/)

But with the price of two of my fav baking staples – free range eggs and butter – surging in price recently, I have been looking at ways to make baking more vegan. I must say, I have yet to experiment with flax eggs or aquafaba meringues – my vegan baking recipes are simply egg- and dairy-free recipes.

This easy to bake vegan banana bread recipe uses just five common ingredients and no technical equipment. If you have a spoon, bowls and a loaf tin you can bake this dairy-free banana bread. And I hope you do.


3 medium sized over-ripe bananas

1/3 cup PLUS 1 tablespoon canola oil

225 grams self-raising flour

2 teaspoons cinnamon

100 grams brown sugar



Preheat oven to 180C and grease and line a loaf tin with non-stick paper.

Mash the bananas with the oil in a bowl, set aside.

In a large mixing bowl sift together the flour and cinnamon, then stir in the sugar, then the banana / oil mixture.

Stir until everything is incorporated then scrape into the tin.

Bake for 40 minutes, then check with a skewer (if there is batter on the skewer you need to cook for another 5 or so minutes)/ When skewer comes out clean remove from oven and stand in tin for 15 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
