This Eggless Oatmeal Banana Bread is a vegan version of the classic, moist cake-like bread made with ripe and sweet bananas. It’s very easy to make, ready in less than an hour and a great breakfast treat for the whole family!
I told you I was craving for banana lately! This oatmeal banana bread is definitely the healthiest banana bread on earth! Seriously, I mean it! I chose to use only high-fiber dry ingredients like whole grain oatmeal, flaxseed and whole wheat. Also, I made this oatmeal banana bread with no egg. I love eggs but I also love to experiment vegan baking recipes and bananas are wonderful egg replacements in baking.
This oatmeal banana bread batter is ready in just 3 minutes in a food processor. For this oatmeal banana bread recipe it took just 15 minutes to prepare the whole banana bread! An incredibly quick and easy recipe. You still need 40-55 minutes of baking but if you make this ahead at night it can bake while you watch a movie and then simply let the bread cool down overnight on a cookie rack. First, your house will smell delicious when you wake up! And also, what’s better than a fresh-baked banana bread for breakfast that you can even take-away in your car while going to work! You can also store this bread up to 5 days. Personally I pre-sliced my bread and wrapped each slice in plastic wrap that I keep in the pantry. So easy when you are on a rush in the morning, you just have to grab a slice before you set off!
This egg-free banana bread has an outstanding texture. It was my first attempt to make a vegan oatmeal banana bread and I was a bit doubtful about the texture. But it’s unbelievable! A moist, thick and dense banana bread with a lovely light sweet taste – while using no refined sugar at all.
Instead of sugar, I used brown rice syrup in this recipe which is my favorite liquid sweetener because it’s less sweet than maple syrup and contains only 50% fructose – less addictive to my crazy sweet taste buds! That’s why I said in the recipe box that if you want to use maple syrup instead of brown rice syrup simply minus 1/4 cup or it will be too sweet. Well, if you love super sweet banana bread, go for 1 cup of maple syrup but I really think 3/4 cup is enough.
If you wonder why this oatmeal bread is nut free – I am usually using lots of almond meal in my baking recipes – it’s simply because Emma – my 3 year old girl – loves banana bread and she wanted some for her lunchbox at preschool. As they have a nut-free policy, I had no choice to use whole-wheat flour and oatmeal instead of nuts. However, if you don’t mind eating nuts, I highly recommend adding 1/2 cup of walnuts or crushed raw almonds in the batter if you like.
So tell me, what would you add in this lovely oatmeal banana bread batter?
