If you'd like to try a low-fat vegan banana bread recipe, this is a great one to try. Because this vegan version is egg free and dairy free, with just 1/3 cup of vegan margarine in the ingredients, it is much lower in fat than regular banana bread.
To sweeten it up a bit, add a sprinkle of sugar to the top of the banana bread before baking, for an extra sweet treat. Or, try adding some vegan chocolate chips into the mix just before baking for a vegan chocolate chip banana bread. Of course, it might not be low-fat anymore if you do that.
This low-fat vegan banana bread recipe is great for people new to vegan baking. Even if you haven't yet discovered how easy it is to bake with egg replacers, you can still make this simple vegan banana bread—no egg replacer or egg substitute needed.
Everyone loves banana bread. But, if you're bored of banana bread, here's a fun alternative: this fat-free vegan pumpkin bread, or try this classic vegan zucchini bread recipe.
Cooking spray, for greasing
1/3 cup vegan margarine, or vegan butter substitute
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup soy milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, optional
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
Prepare a loaf pan with a coat of cooking spray or a light coat of vegan margarine. You can also lightly coat the pan with sugar—if you prefer a sweeter vegan banana bread and to give it a nice, sweet, crunchy bit on the outside.
Cream together the vegan margarine and sugar.
Stir in the flour and baking powder and baking soda.
Once the flour is well incorporated, stir in the mashed bananas, soy milk, and vanilla, stirring to incorporate well.
Gently fold in the walnuts or any other chopped nuts you'd like to add.
Pour the batter into a lightly oiled bread pan.
Bake for 50 minutes.
