This Vegan Banana Bread with Walnuts and Chocolate Chips is an updated, “veganized” version of my banana bread recipe I posted here on the blog a while ago.
I decided to use half whole wheat flour and all purpose flour as well as white and brown sugar to change things up a bit. To make this banana bread vegan I replaced the butter with oil and applesauce and used Bob’s Red Mill Egg Replacer instead of eggs. I also substituted almond milk for regular milk, but feel free to use your favorite plant based milk.
I love a big slice of this Vegan Banana Bread with Walnuts and Chocolate Chips with a bit of butter (vegan) and a drizzle of maple syrup. Yummy!Print
