Ingredients

Dry ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup (100 g) gluten-free flour (see notes)
  • 1 cup (90 g) oat flour (gluten-free if needed)
  • 5/8 cup (70 g) ground seeds or nuts of choice
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Wet ingredients:

  • 3 small (240 g) ripe bananas (weight without peel) + one for the top
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tbsp lemon juice or vinegar
  • 1/2 cup (100 g) dates chopped
  • 2/3 cup (160 g) plant-based milk
  • Optional: 3 tbsp chopped dairy-free chocolate (I used sugar-free)

Instructions

  • You can watch the short video for visual instructions.
    Preheat the oven to 360 degrees F (180 degrees C) and line an 8-inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Add all dry ingredients (except the chocolate) to a large bowl and mix with a spoon.
  • In a different bowl, mash the bananas really well (e.g. with a fork).
  • Add the vanilla extract, vinegar, dates, and plant-based milk and stir well.
  • Transfer the wet to the dry ingredients and stir to combine.
  • Pour the batter into the baking pan and optionally add the chocolate on top.
  • Bake the banana bread in the oven for about 45 minutes. Check the center with a toothpick- if it comes out dry or slightly sticky/crumbly, that's fine, just not wet.
  • Let the banana bread cool, slice it, and enjoy (optionally with a vegan chocolate spread)!

Notes

  • Flour: I used a gluten-free flour blend consisting of 50% buckwheat flour and 50% rice flour. However, you can also use an all-purpose GF flour blend or regular flour.
