Vegan Baking Ain’t Easy

It’s not that we try to eat vegan at all because clearly we don’t. Just do a quick scroll though our recent posts, and it is obvious we are all about the grass-fed beef, pastured pork and other high quality proteins among other things. That said, if you ever go on a stint of not eating eggs or actually can’t eat eggs….baking becomes a whole new thing. And getting the right consistency without eggs is crazy hard (at least for this Paleo vegan banana bread it was tough for me)! But fear not, I don’t give up easy and really, really wanted banana bread, so you’re welcome! 😉

But Why No Eggs You Ask

I read years ago that a lot of people with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) have allergies and sensitivities to eggs. Well, I really like them and baking, so I decided to turn a deaf ear to that one. It is kind of comical that I say that because one of my primary symptoms of my MS is that I have permanent hearing loss in one of my ears (I’m not actually deaf – just have bad hearing in one ear – ask Justin he’ll tell you). It was sudden and happened shortly before my diagnosis – actually that hearing loss is really the reason I came to get my diagnosis, but that’s another story.

I’ve digressed, so when I say I turned a deaf ear to the idea of eggs maybe not being the best option for me…well, I must have turned to the left (my right ear is the bad one)! But it kind of always stuck with me and lingered in the back of my mind. So…I recently decided to ditch eggs and see how I feel. I think the answer is that I feel better without them. It’s sad and good all at the same time. Making this Paleo Vegan Banana Bread was a must for me. I just needed a slice of comfort food and that is exactly what banana bread is for me.

So Many Tries

I really did work on this Paleo vegan banana bread quite a bit longer than it usually takes me to “get it right”. I think you’re really going to like it though! The outer edges get that almost crispy, but kind of chewy texture, where the inside is like regular banana bread texture but slightly more gooey. It’s actually become a new favorite and something Justin and I go through pretty quick when it’s sitting on the counter! Justin is not typically much of a muffin/bread person, so when he enjoys something I know it has the golden stamp of approval! And you can really do whatever you want for the toppings, or no toppings at all to make it your own. We just happen to like adding some extra banana and walnuts sometimes. Other times chocolate chips! And of course, the obligatory nut butter drizzle!

Ingredients

Optional toppings:

  • 1 banana, sliced lengthwise into long thin sliced
  • Chopped nuts (we like walnuts or pecans, this is optional)
  • Chocolate Chips (topping or you could also fold them into the batter)
  • Nut butter (to drizzle on top after it's baked)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit, and line a standard bread loaf pan with parchment paper. 
  • In a large mixing bowl, mash up the banana. Add the coconut sugar and vanilla. Stir to thoroughly combine all of the ingredients. 
  • Add almond flour, tapioca starch and sea salt. Stir to combine. 
  • Add baking soda and apple cider vinegar. Let them react and then mix in. 
  • Spoon the batter into the lined bread pan, and spread out until it is evenly dispersed. Add toppings and gently press them into the batter. 
  • Transfer to oven and bake for 60-65 minutes, or until the top turns brown, cracks and the loaf is firm. 
  • Once done, use parchment paper to lift the loaf out of the pan and cool. Slice and serve! Store in an airtight container on the counter or in the fridge to keep it fresh longer.

  • I was so excited to see this recipe , especially for my son who cannot have dairy or eggs. BUT , he cannot have any type of nuts, and I see you have almond flour. Is there a way to substitute almond flour for something else?

  • This is the best banana bread I’ve ever had! I just baked it and can’t stop eating it, and I’m not normally a huge fan! But I needed to use up frozen, very ripe bananas so looked for an eggless, paleo recipe. I doubled the number of bananas because they were so shriveled as well as added a fresh, ripe one. I also threw in about a 1/3 cup chocolate chips and 1/3 cup pecans. YUM!

  • Did you cook this in a metal bread pan, or a stoneware? I used stoneware and after 70 minutes(I give a few extra to let the thicker pan heat up) the top was dark brown and although the loaf felt solid, it was still a little too doughy in the lower half ? it’s not like I have any food safety concerns because of the lack of egg, but texture wasn’t quite what I wanted… I toasted the slices on a pan on low temp, so I think it will be okay, but I’d like to know what type of bread pan you used! It smells divine, and the flavor is great… and after the slice is crisped in a pan, it kind of reminds me of bread pudding with a crispy outside. It just isn’t really giving me “bread” texture.

    • Oh dang! I’ve used both a glass and a metal bread pan. It comes out best in a metal pan though I think. It definitely has more of a gooey center than a traditional bread, but not too doughy when I’ve made it – like the addicting I need just one more bite kind of gooey. It reminds me of my mom’s banana bread growing up after it had been sitting on the counter for a couple days, which is when I like it best! 😉

      • OK, good to know! It really taste great, and I will play around with different baking set up’s. My husband is excited for me to experiment with it a lot! Thank you for the great recipe, he is allergic to eggs and has really missed baked goods

          • Upon further testing, a metal muffin tray is giving me the best results…. although the bread is coming out substantially darker than the pictures you have (google search black banana bread, and that’s what mine looks like!) but the texture and flavor are bread, so no complaints here! Great recipe!

          • The metal pan works best for me too! I’m glad that you’ve been able to get the texture and flavor to work out! I’m curious about how dark it is coming out because that’s never happened for me in the many times I’ve made this. I wonder if maybe your bananas are just more ripe than I usually use. That could perhaps be it. Regardless, happy you like the recipe! Stay tuned for another Paleo and Vegan friendly banana bread recipe coming this Fall! 🙂

  • I’m so excited to try this recipe! I just started an elimination diet and have been missing muffins/breads etc terribly. I was wondering if this recipe would still work ok without the coconut sugar? The diet I am following restricts any sort of sugar, even natural sweeteners such as honey/maple syrup/ coconut sugar – and I’m just wondering if omitting the coconut sugar will change the consistency of the bread.

    • Hey there – well, I haven’t tried it without the coconut sugar, but it does have an impact on the consistency. You might have to play with the recipe a bit and add more flour to thicken it up a bit. I’d mix everything up as is per the recipe but without the coconut sugar. Then, take a look at the recipe video at the end of the recipe card and try to match the consistency by slowly adding more almond flour. The cooking time might need to be adjusted as well, so just watch it as it bakes and pull it out when the top turns brown, cracks and the loaf is firm. Let us know how it goes if you give it a try! 🙂

    • I had the exact same question! I did was was suggested and added ~2 tablespoons of coconut flour (I ran out of almond). The bread turned out delicious, although it didn’t seem to fluff up as much as in the pictures above.

      • Amazing! I’m so glad it worked out well! Paleo and Vegan baking is hard…and it definitely doesn’t always rise like traditional baking does. Hopefully you enjoy the flavor and consistency though and that is what counts! Thanks so much for giving it a try and coming to share what worked for you! Appreciate it! 🙂

  • Thank-you so much for this recipe, my son has Autism and has shown to have many food allergies. This recipe fit his diet felt like a treat, and made me so happy I could get him to eat something healthy.

  • I’m not sure why this article needed to begin with how presumably hard it is to bake vegan food, and a disclaimer that you guys “try” to be vegan but aren’t. And then say if anyone wants to go on a “stint of not eating eggs” they should try this recipe. As a vegan who just googled veganbanana bread recipes I was kinda turned off right away. Why not just introduce the recipe? You don’t have to be vegan to eat vegan, but the excuses and assuming not eating the reproductive waste from other animals is a “stint,” is a real turn off of some of your target audience with this one. In news writing we say “don’t bury the lead.”

  • Hello this banana bread looks delicious! Would I be able to replace the coconut sugar with honey and if so how much would you recommend?

    • Hey there – I haven’t tried it, so I can’t say how much or how the consistency would work out. I personally prefer coconut sugar because it has a lower glycemic index. If I were going to try though, I’d probably start by trying 1/4 cup honey. Again, can’t say how it would work out though. You’ll have to let us know if it works if you give it a try!

  • I have not been able to find a good banana bread recipe since going grain free, dairy free, and egg free a couple years ago. Decided to give your recipe a go and so glad I did! Truly wonderful! Thanks for the amazing recipe!!

  • My boyfriend is on a restricted diet for a few months and I just wanted to say thank you for this delicious recipe. I made them for his birthday(there are few baking recipes he can have) and no one could believe how little they had in them. Thanks so much!

  • I haven’t tried this recipe, or any of your dessert recipes yet, and based on how much I love your recipes, I’m kinda scared to! I’ve been working hard to lose weight, and your recipes have been a big part of my success (down 40 lbs!). I so want to try this one, but I’m scared I’ll love it so much, I’ll make it every week! Ha.

    Hoping to make it soon, and take to work so they can help me eat it!

    • Hahahaha! Well, that is quite a compliment. Thank you! This one is good, and consider yourself warned that it is addicting. Some folks have experienced a little trouble with the consistency, since it’s made with no eggs and alternative flours. However, if you’re a fan of banana bread that’s a little gooey in the middle like I do…you will enjoy this one! 😉 Would love to hear what you think if you give it a try! It’s a good plan to make and take to work if you don’t want to accidentally eat it all!

  • I made this!! Added 1 chia “egg” just for kicks.
    + An extra overly ripe banana, just bc I like it extra moist, so it was perfect for me!
    My family loves it and said they didn’t notice any difference.
    Thank you for this grain-free goooodnessss!

    5 stars!
