Can you believe there are only 27 days until Christmas? I know, where has the time gone? Seriously, I can barely believe it. I feel like I just cooked us an epic vegan Thanksgiving feast. We just put up and decorated our Christmas tree with all our ornaments. We just got all our Christmas candles and bath bombs out. Now, it’s just a little over 3 weeks until the big day! Which means, I’ll be in the kitchen non-stop baking, because nothing says “happy holidays” more than freshly baked treats. So I hope you enjoy these 6 delicious, vegan sweet bread recipes like this almond banana bread!
My inspiration for today’s round-up of vegan recipes with bananas is quite simple: I have a bunch of incredibly ripe, brown & spotty bananas that I need to put to good use. I normally either freeze my ripe bananas and turn them into nicecream or make my simple 4-ingredient oatmeal banana breakfast cookies. Those are my 2 go-to banana recipes, but I’ve ventured out too quite a bit with my banana overnight oats and banana bread donuts. But I’m feeling creative and want to turn my bananas into something delicious that I’ve never tried before!
I came into a predicament this week, because I found myself with about 8 extra ripe, brown and spotty bananas that I needed to use up. I thought about making my favorite banana bread donuts, but it’s no longer the weekend so I wanted to try a new snack recipe that’s healthy enough to eat throughout the day. I thought about making granola bars, but then I was inspired by Gena from The Full Helping to make these vegan & gluten-free banana bread blondies adapted from her recipe. They’re really chewy, naturally sweet, and make a great afternoon snack!
