Vegan Banana Bread with Strawberries

  • ½ cup applesauce unsweetened
  • 2 large ripe bananas = 1 cup mashed - measured
  • 1/3 cup melted vegan butter cooled to room temperature or oil of choice
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar or sugar of choice
  • 1/3 cup almond milk or milk of choice
  • 2 cups all purpose flour or gluten free flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup rough chopped walnuts optional
  • 1 1/2 cups strawberries hulled and chopped or if using frozen, thaw and drain juice for best results.


  • Instructions
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and spray a 9x5 baking loaf bread pan with non-stick cooking spray or line with parchment paper and grease.
  • In a large bowl, mash the bananas with a fork until smooth. Stir the melted vegan butter into the mashed bananas.
  • Whisk in the soda and salt to the bowl with the wet ingredients, then add the flour and stir until just combined, making sure you don't over mix.
  • Gently fold in the strawberries and walnuts.
  • Pour into the prepared pan, place in the center rack of the oven and bake for 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Let it cool in the pan for a few minutes, then transfer the loaf to a cooling rack. Let the banana bread cool for at least 30 minutes before slicing for nice slices. Serve and enjoy!


Could also substitute non-dairy yogurt option for applesauce.
