What to do when you have a few overripe bananas at home? Should you use them in a shake? Or make some banana muffins from them?
I have an even better solution. What you can make from them is a very easy vegan banana bread. And if you have some walnuts at home, even better.
And why is this vegan banana bread so cool?
First of all, it is VEGAN. And that means, there are only plant-based ingredients used. The second reason why you should bake it is the taste.
The melted chocolate bits inside are super yummy. The walnuts give this bread a wonderful crunchiness. And the caramelized banana on top makes it very complex in flavors and textures.
Honestly, I can’t recommend it enough.
What else you can add to the batter?
- You can always swap the spelt flour for a gluten-free version or use a nut-based flour. Like almond flour for example.
- You can add other types of nuts like chopped almonds or pecans.
- If you are not a fan of dark chocolate you can always use milk chocolate instead. But make sure it is vegan.
- If you would like to make the cake more insulin friendly (lower the Glycemic Index), you can use coconut sugar, xylitol or other sweeteners.
