Whole Food Plant Based Banana Bread
When you cut refined oils and sugars from your diet, you think you’ll never have baked goods again. Of course, I didn’t accept that and got to work trying to find a delicious occasional treat that wouldn’t get me off track. This whole food plant based banana bread is just the thing!
I’ve tried a few different healthy baked good recipes and they have been dense, chewy, gummy, and just plain not awesome. Then I stumbled upon this whole foods plant based banana bread.
Bananas are pretty magical. Sure, they taste great and add sweetness but they also add moistness and binding to your baked goods. But, you have to like how bananas taste. Because the flavor almost always comes through.
Another magical ingredient is whole wheat pastry flour. Whole wheat pastry flour is made from soft wheat berries instead of hard wheat berries like regular whole wheat flour. It’s still made from the whole grain even though it grinds up finer. It’s not quite as fine as all-purpose flour but in most cases you won’t notice much of a difference.
If you’d like to make this whole food plant based banana bread recipe gluten-free, make sure the oats you use are gluten-free. And our favorite replacement for the whole wheat pastry flour is Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free 1 to 1 Baking Flour.
