While banana bread is a common favourite for many because it's so easy to make, most recipes (as well as breads purchased from shops) will contain dairy and/or eggs.

Banana bread is always a delicious breakfast option or treat. And this recipe is a great one as it's ideal for vegans and still comes out of the oven smelling amazingly delicious.

Preparation time: About 10-15 minutes
Cooking time: 1 hour (sometimes slightly less for a fan forced oven)

Ingredients:
2 cups of self raising flour
3/4 cup of white sugar
1/2 cup of brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 cup of non dairy milk such as soy/almond
4 mashed bananas (about 2 cups- the more ripe/over-ripe they are the better)
1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup of canola oil
2 tablespoons of agave or maple syrup
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Please note: Walnuts, sultanas or even dairy free chocolate chips can also be added should you wish.

Method

Heat your oven to 180C

Lightly oil a loaf dish and set aside. Alternatively, baking paper can be used to line the baking dish.

In a large mixing bowl, blend together the flour, both sugars, and cinnamon.

In a second bowl, mix together the milk, apple cider vinegar, and then set aside for about 2 minutes to combine. Add the 2 cups of bananas, oil and the vanilla. Use a whisk to combine well.

Add your dry ingredients to the wet mixture, and fold until well combined. Don't over-mix the batter or the the dough will become heavy and very dense.

Pour dough into the loaf dish and bake for 1 hour. Bread is finished when a skewer or tooth pick can be inserted into the middle of the loaf and come out clean. If the loaf is still sticky after an hour in the oven, leave it for another 10 minutes.

After removing from the oven, remove the bread from the baking tin and allow to cool for 20 minutes on a wire tray.

You can also remove all sugar, and instead use 1/2 cup of agave or maple syrup. Agave is naturally sweet and often adds a rich flavor to your baking.

Enjoy!
