Healthy Banana Bread {Vegan & Oil-free}

I posted a picture of my banana bread a little while ago and many of you said you wanted a written recipe…so here it is! 

This recipe is tied in with the collaboration I am having with JORD watches. If you came to this recipe via the collab post, then you already know about the $100 giveaway. If you don’t, then you can follow this link:

This banana bread is everything you dreamed of: Moist, fluffy, not overly sweet, and it is healthy so you can eat it anytime of day! 


I based this recipe off of my pumpkin bread and omitted the vegan butter to make it a healthier option. Feel free to substitute with a gluten-free flour blend to make it gluten-free, but I can not guarantee the same results as far as texture! 

I also think topping this with some healthy coconut whip or cashew cream frosting would be amazing! You can also add a variety of nuts, or dried fruits.

I sprinkled mine with a super easy oat crumble that consisted of: rolled oats, almonds, agave, & vanilla extract. There are many things that you can top with this bread, so get creative!

Banana Bread {Vegan & Oil-free}

By: Taavi Elizabeth     Makes: 1 loaf 

instagrampicedited (6 of 9)


  • 1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour 
  • 1 tsp baking soda 
  • 1 tsp baking powder 
  • 1/4 tsp of ground ginger 
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon 
  • 2 1/2 ripe bananas 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar 
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp almond milk (or non-dairy milk of choice) 

(Optional) Crumble Topping 

  • 1 heaping tbsp almonds 
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats 
  • 1 tbsp agave 
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a loaf tin with parchment paper. 
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together all dried ingredients. In a smaller mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas until smooth. Add in the rest of the wet ingredients. Whisk to combine. Pour wet mixture into dry, and stir until just combined. At this stage, you can throw in your optional add-ins (dried fruit, nuts, etc.). Pour batter into the loaf tin. 
  3. If you are making crumble, combine all ingredients in a food processor. Process until crumbly. Sprinkle generously over batter. 
  4. Bake for 25-30 min. or until golden brown and toothpick inserted comes out clean. My favorite way to serve it is warm with either vegan butter or nut butter! Yum.
