Hey pixels!! This happy recipe is an adaptation of this one, found at the wonderful blog of my friend Daisy Ashcroft, who made a vegan banana bread. I’ve never made a banana bread before, but I really wanted to make one. So here it is!!


It has been easy and quick. You just need 6 ingredients that you already have at home. And voilà!! A nice breakfast. Or something to bring to a brunch. You’ll impress everyone with this bread. It’s so tasteful they won’t believe it’s vegan.


  • 225g plain flour
  • 100g brown  sugar
  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 75g olive oil


Preheat your oven to 200ºC

Peel the bananas, chop and mash in a large bowl with a fork or a masher.

Mix the bananas with the olive oil and sugar  and stir well.

Add in the flour, baking powder and cinnamon and continue to mix well. Don’t worry if the mixture remains lumpy; it will sort itself out in the oven!


Pour the mixture into a greased loaf tin; I used a bit of olive oil to make it easier.

Bake for 30′.

Turn it out onto a wire rack to cool down before slicing.

Enjoy with butter, home made fig jam and a cup of tea!

Do you like banana bread, my happy pixels? I think it’s great, my result has been great to be the first time I’ve made one.
