You already know that I love cooking, but I am allergic to recipes with too many steps and ingredients. So I figured out a no-fuss, easy banana bread recipe that’s plant-based, oil-free, moist, and really freaking delicious.
For this recipe, I only used 5 necessary ingredients. That’s it. And everything’s plant-based approved. After you’re done making this, you’re going to be tempted to eat the whole thing.
I know I did. And I ate it all. Whatever, at least it has a lot of fiber.
- 3 very ripe bananas
- 8 dates
- 1 tsp cinnamon powder (optional)
- ¼ cup walnuts
- 1 cup oat bran
- ¼ cup water
- Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.
- Excluding the walnuts, throw everything in a blender.
- Blend for about a minute, until you get a batter-type consistency.
- Mix your walnuts with the banana bread batter.
- Pour batter into a loaf pan. Top with more walnuts if you want.
- Bake for 30 minutes uncovered. Then, for the remaining 30 minutes, loosely cover with aluminium foil.
- Check with toothpick if done. If it comes out clean , it’s done. If not done, pop it in for a few more minutes.
- Remove from oven. Allow to cool for at least 15 minutes. Remove. Slice. Serve.
