Mom's Banana Bread Made Vegan

What you need: 

1 cup of sugar (I use Florida crystals)
1/2 cup of butter substitute (Earth Balance)
egg substitute for 2 eggs (2 tablespoons of flax, ground up works well, and 6 tablespoons
of water)
3 bananas (though 2 will work)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups of flour
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of vanilla

What you do: 

Put all of the above ingredients into a bowl and beat together with a mixer until smooth. Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake for roughly 45 minutes at 325 degrees or until a toothpick comes out clean. It may take slightly longer to cook than 45 minutes.
This recipe works well at both sea level and higher altitudes (I usually add an extra bit of flour for cooking at altitude).

Preparation Time: 
10 minutes + 45 minutes

A note about the time....missyjane is right.  I had assumed it took longer because of my college oven and the high altitude.  It does take about 55 minutes in actuality though.  Also, feel free to add walnuts or vegan chocolate chips to mix it up!


I made two loaves of banana bread from two different vegweb recipes, and this one came out way better than the other. It was so moist and yummy. The only thing I'd say is that 45 min. baking time was waaay too short. Mine took over an hour. (Maybe it's just my oven though.)
