Vegan Banana Bread is one of my more traditional recipes. This is actually a gluten-free version, which I am now happy with. Sometimes, it is a case of letting go and experimenting with food and seeing where it lands. I do not add sugar to this dish and prefer mashing half my bananas and leaving the rest sliced within. To this Vegan Banana Bread I like sprinkling banana chips.

What to do next

Tag me on @ethiveganquantum on Instagram to show me what you’ve made and let me know you’re happy for me to share.

My recipes are featured in vegan speciality publications: Nourished, Vegan Life, Plant Based and Vegan, Food and Living.

Order my first self-published book, “Essence: The Beginner’s Guide to Veganism” part of the three-part Circle of Food series. My second book “Presence: The Ascending Vegan” – which explores how to maintain a vegan practice is out in 2027 – I have compiled all the chapters including recipes.

Going strong since 2013.
