This is a bit of a change of pace from the things I’ve posted recently. This might be refreshing to some of y’all. Or not..who knows!
Ironically, this one of the first vegan recipes I made when I was looking more into cooking. I actually used to make a lot of baking style recipes because I was into sweets a lot.
These days, my sugar tolerance is a lot lower, which is probably good. But sometimes I still got that desire for sugar.
Now technically, you can lower the amount of sugar added in this recipe or using something that may make you feel a bit better. Like agave or maple syrup. However, I found that the bread didn’t always come out the way I liked it with a liquid sweetener as opposed to sugar. But that’s just me. It might work better for you.
One thing about this recipe is that it comes in handy for someone who eats a lot of fruit. I say that because I bought a bundle of bananas but didn’t want to keep eating them everyday because bananas get boring quick.
On top of that, I have a fruit basket with a banana hanger, so you know they got ripe quick as hell, meaning they were going bad fast. Thankfully, I remembered this recipe and was decided I’m going to put them to use.
I highly recommend experimenting with added ingredients. Banana bread is a good canvas to try new mixtures and flavors because you can always add different things to it for added variety.
