Vegan Carrot Banana Bread

Add some excitement to your traditional banana bread with carrots! This vegan carrot banana bread is tender and full of flavour making it a perfect dessert or afternoon snack.

Not only is it healthy – it’s also dairy-free and egg-free, low in fat, not too sweet but yet super moist. The batter may also incorporate some nuts, raisins and other dried fruits and vegetables; flexible and really good for health-conscious folks I say! It’s also perfect for a light breakfast, too!

Notes

  • For best results, make sure to follow the ingredients and the directions precisely.
  • The riper the bananas, the less sugar you’ll need. If your bananas are not very ripe, you may like to add a tablespoon or so more.
  • Cold milk will harden coconut oil so make sure your milk is at room temperature.
  • For an oil-free bread, use apple sauce instead of oil.
  • For gluten-free bread, use a GF flour blend.
  • For storage: Covered bread on the counter lasts 3 days or in the fridge for about 1 week. Bread in an airtight container/bag stored in the freezer can last up to 3 months, but make sure to thaw the bread overnight in the fridge before removing.
