Recipe: Vegan Banana Oat Bread

Food! Don’t we all love to eat! I especially love me some sweet treats and this definitely hits my sweet tooth right in the bulls-eye. This recipe is a much healthier option than other recipes out there and actually only needs a couple of ingredients.

INGREDIENTS:
3 to 4 ripe spotty bananas (Peeled and mashed)
½ coconut sugar 
1.5 to 2 cups of purpose/plain flour (I used whole wheat all purpose flour) 
1 cup soy milk (reduced sugar) 
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 a cup of rolled oats
1 tbsp chia seed
1 tbsp flax seed
⅛ tsp cinnamon
INSTRUCTIONS:

Preheat the oven to 170°C (340°F).

Roughly chop the bananas, place them into a large bowl and mash them with a fork to obtain a thick puree like consistency.

Add in the coconut sugar, the soy milk, the cinnamon and stir well to incorporate them.(You can use a whisk to whisk them together)

Add in the flour and mix it in a little at the time, do not just pour all the flour in. Then, tip in the baking powder and mix well.

Grease a loaf pan with coconut oil, pour in the batter and level it with a spatula.

Place the bread in the oven and bake the bread for about 60 minutes, rotating the loaf pan every 30 minutes to allow for even browning and cooking.

To prevent the surface of the bread from burning, remove the bread from the oven after 40 minutes and cover it with aluminium foil.

At the end of the cooking process, pierce the bread with a fork or chopstick to ensure it is cooked. If it is cooked, the pick will come out dry and with no mixture on it.

Make sure to let it cool for at least 20 minutes or so! Yes the temptation to just devour it right away is so strong but letting it cool and settle down really makes a difference so just be patient!

*FYI this banana bread is more of a denser bread and is best eaten warm! Vegan choco chips or swirling peanut butter in are great add ins as well!*
