Banana Nut Bread

What you need: 

3 ripe bananas, mashed
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a loaf pan. Mix the mashed bananas and oil in a large bowl.
2. Stir in the flour, vegan sugar, salt, and baking soda. Mix in the nuts.
3. Pour the well blended batter into the greased pan and bake for 1 hour. Remove and let cool.
I found this recipe works better than many I've tried, since it sticks together much better, and is healthier for you since it doesn't require shortening and a lot of oil. Any oil will suffice, however olive oil is the healthiest!

SO HOW'D IT GO?

This is great. I didn't leave it in the oven long enough, but it was still great.

Yum! I used 1 cup of whole wheat flour and 1 cup of all-purpose, 1/2 tsp of salt, and 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup agave, and it turned out great. The whole wheat flour gives it a very earthy taste, so you could use a little less whole wheat than I did if you want to try it.
The texture still seems to be right even though I changed the sweetener amounts. Good basic recipe and easy to play around with!

Thank you for this recipe!!!  I have made it MANY times for my boyfriend here in Argentina.  He never gets tired of it!  It's hard to find healthier options for bread and desserts here, so I really appreciate this simple, easy recipe.  It's been great every time!

P.S.  I did reduce the salt to 1/2 tsp. from 1 tsp.  Dazzle

Wow!  After having tried dozens of banana bread recipes over the years, I give a big thumbs up to this one.  Not only is it low-fat and not too sweet, but it bakes evenly without a mushy middle.  I live at a high altitude so I added 1 Tbsp. soymilk to the batter, as well as 1 tsp. vanilla (just because).  Thanks Jessica!  This recipe is a keeper.  ;)b  Dazzle (New Mexico)

I love this recipe!! The only sub. I made was for the nuts, I'm not a big fan of nuts in baked goods. I put chocolate chips in for the nuts, and it was fabulous!! And I cut down the sugar to just about a 1/2 cup. Perfect!

I added a teaspoon of vanilla and 3/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and it turned out really good.  I also used brown sugar instead of white. I might try to use a little more cinnamon next time, though, seeing how I can't even taste it.

My boyfriend made this the other day and it was really good!
The bananas were sitting out on the counter for a while so I feared that the bananas would be too ripe
but to my surprise it came out perfect.
The only changes my boyfriend made was that he added oatmeal
and brown sugar to the top. It was a perfect taste.
We didn't have any walnuts so he completely omited it from the recipe.
Nonetheless it was really good!
Thanks!

Just made this - my non-vegi husband likes it as much as I do. It was SUPER simple to make. I did take it out of the oven at 55 minutes though - and I think next time I'll try it at just 45 minutes - but I'm sure like all recipese this just depends upon your oven. Some other reviewer mentioned cinnamon... that sounds like it would be a great addition to this yummy bread : )  Thanks!  ;)b
