Mashed bananas, flaxseed meal and almond milk make this healthy vegan banana bread deliciously moist and tender. While this quick and easy bread might be eggless and dairy-free, it's just as delicious as traditional versions. Add bittersweet chocolate chips for a decadent treat.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.

  • Stir water and flaxseed meal together in a small bowl. Let stand for a few minutes.

  • Whisk almond milk, sugar, oil, vanilla and the flaxseed mixture in a medium bowl. Stir in mashed bananas. Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined. If desired, add chocolate chips, stirring just to combine; do not overmix. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan.

  • Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack. Let cool for 1 hour before slicing.


To make ahead: Wrap and store at room temperature for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
