Vegan Whole Grain Banana Bread

Vegan Whole Grain Banana Bread

Name something better than a warm, thick slice of banana bread. I’ll wait.

Seriously, banana bread has to be one of my favourite baked goods. I love the little brown speckles from the bananas, and I love when it is just slightly underdone and gooey. Anyone else?

 

As a dietitian, I know that it’s important to aim for 50% or more of your daily grains intake to be whole grain. Whole grains have undergone the least amount of processing and the term whole grain means exactly that – the grain or seed is intact. A grain kernel contains three parts – the bran, the germ, and the endosperm. In whole grain products, these are all in tact. The grain hasn’t been stripped down to just the endosperm, as it is when “white” or refined grains are produced.

Why is this important? Well – whole grains are considered more nutritious than refined grains as they contain more fibre, vitamins, and minerals. Increased intake of whole grains has been associated with a lower risk of heart disease, diabetes, and some cancers.

 

So, I’ve been testing this recipe for vegan, whole grain banana bread for a few months now. First it didn’t rise enough, then it was too dry. Finally, I got it right. It’s perfectly fluffy yet chewy and just sweet enough. But how about I stop talking and let you go make it for yourself.

As always, nothing excites me more than seeing you make my recipes! Tag me on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook if you share photos. 🙂 Enjoy!
