Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Peanut butter and chocolate chip banana bread - vegan recipe from tinnedtomatoes.com


I've made another vegan banana bread. I don't know what it is, but there always seems to be leftover and rapidly browning bananas in my house. I add bananas to smoothies and I take them to work to snack on, yet there are always leftover bananas. Never mind, that means Graham gets some scrummy banana bread quite regularly.

I added chocolate chips as usual. Let's face it everything is improved with a spot of chocolate. I also added peanut butter this time and a swirl of caramel on top.

The caramel is completely optional. I know caramel isn't usually vegan, but this one is coconut based. Isn't everything these days? I got it in M&S. It's rather pricey, but it's actually lasted a while. I've added it to a few things and there's still plenty left.

You can perk up banana bread in all sorts of ways, once you have the basic recipe.


5 Top Banana Bread Hacks

  1. Slice a banana lengthwise and add the slices to the top of the loaf before popping it in the oven.
  2. Add spices. Freshly ground cinnamon or nutmeg work really well.
  3. Add blueberries, they will pop inside for a juicy splash of colour that will taste great.
  4. Add sliced bananas to the mixture.
  5. Top with seeds or nuts before baking.

Of course once your banana bread is out of the oven, you have to let it cool a bit before slicing. I know it's a complete pain isn't it? Wait you must, as horrendous as that is, but you can slice it while it's still a little warm. Let's face it you're not going to wait until it's completely cool. That smell is wafting around the house and it look so good.

Once sliced it needs a good layer of dairy free butter and then you need absolute peace to enjoy it and another slice or two. So make sure you warn everyone to go do something else until you call them.

Then share it! If you have to.

What to make with leftover banana bread


If you have any banana bread left over. Ha ha ha! No really, if you do, you can butter some slices and pop them in a ovenproof dish, then top with Alpro dairy free custard and bake. Serve it with more hot custard (or dairy free ice cream). Mmmmmmm! Toe-curlingly good.

Ingredients
  • 3 medium to large ripe bananas
  • 120g caster sugar

Instructions
1. Preheat the oven to 180c/160c fan/350f/gas mark 4.2. Line a 2 lb loaf tin. I like the cake liners rather than faffing about with greaseproof paper.3. Mash the bananas in a bowl, then mix in the peanut butter, sugar and nut milk or cream.4. In another bowl add the flour, baking powder, salt and chocolate chips and mix.5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix. Don't over mix, just enough until it's mixed, then pour in the loaf tin, add a swirl of caramel to the top and bake in the oven for 1 hour.6. Do a skewer test before the hour is up, if it comes out clean it's ready. Keep an eye on it.7. Leave to cool in the tin for a little while, then move to a rack to continue cooling.8. Enjoy!

  4. I ALWAYS have black bananas in my fruit bowl and stashed in the freezer. Usually make muffins with them but this sounds like a great alternative.
