Oh Banana Bread... how we love you! Since the kids were babies, Banana Bread of all sorts has been not only a staple in our kitchen but also a vehicle to pump healthy ingredients into the kids without them really knowing it.
I've gone so far as to add spinach and avocado to recipes (with success I might add!), but we keep returning to an old favorite recipe (and spinach-free version...) - Oatmeal Banana Bread with Molasses.
Tender and flavorful, we easily removed the dairy when my son became intolerant, but would the old recipe stand up to becoming "veganized"? Absolutely.
The banana and oatmeal bring a tender moistness while the walnuts add a touch of texture. But I think it's the molasses that kicks this recipe over the top with a rich pop of flavor that leaves you simply wanting more.
Fabulous fresh from the oven, we've been known to demolish an entire loaf before the last slice cools. However if you can save enough for breakfast the next morning, a toasted slice slathered with peanut butter and topped with sliced banana is pure heaven.
Whether serving to your plant-based friends or not, this recipe may rise to the top of your most used recipes once you give it a go.
Cheers my friends, here's to banana love!
