Vegan Banana bread

Hello my glamorous friends I hope you are well . As most vegan's will tell when transitioning in to the vegan lifestyle bananas easily becomes your best friend , the versatility of the fruit is endless  . ( personally I do think we all underestimate the banana but we shouldn't !  ) The possibilities are endless when it comes to bananas as I said before but you can honestly do so much with a banana such as use it a an egg replacer , thickening agent in smoothie's and most of all banana ice cream !!
The list goes on and on when it comes to the uses of a bananas .

For the banana bread:
300g bananas
110gcaster sugar
320g plain flour
140g plant based milk
15g baking powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon

For the topping:
1banana (100g)
desiccated coconut
brown sugar

  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C (340°F).
  2. Roughly chop the bananas, place them into a bowl and thoroughly mash them with a fork to obtain a thick puree with no large pieces.
  3. Add in the sugar, the milk, the cinnamon and stir well to incorporate them.
  4. Add in the flour and mix it in a little at the time; we like to add it in 3 times to make sure it disperses properly before adding more. Whilst you are adding the second part of the flour, tip in the baking powder.
  5. Grease a loaf pan, pour in the batter and level it with a spatula.
  6. For the topping, lengthways cut half of a banana, and place the haled banana in the middle of batter . sprinkle desiccated coconut and brown sugar .
  7. Place the pan into the oven and start counting the cooking time. You want to cook the bread for 30minutes.
  8. At the end of the cooking process, pierce the bread with a toothpick to ensure it is cooked. If it is cooked, the pick will come out dry and with no mixture on it.
  9. Leave to cool and soon after serve .
