Nomnomnom. This is SUCH a delight. This is greatness from the inside out. Nobody will bitch about you being Vegan after eating this. Damn this is good.
I generally followed ‘This Rawsome Vegan Life’s’ recipe for this Banana Bread, just switched up the sugar with coconut sugar and the oil with apple sauce! And added in my own homemade peanut butter :) Basically I created a little healthier version of her Banana Bread with the help of one of my favorite blogs ‘FatFreeVegan’ but made the Crust unhealthier ;) So just stick with Rawsome’s Crust if you wanna take it easy! But just let me tell you…the chocolate chunks on top…oh yeah.
Anyhow, preheat your oven to 350°F and let’s get started.
Here are your ingredients for the Banana Bread:
1 cup mashed Bananas (very ripe)
1 TB homemade peanut butter (roast peanuts, blend with veg. oil. voila!)
1/2 cup Apple Sauce
3/4 cup Coconut Sugar
1 TB Maple Syrup
1/2 t Salt
2 TB ground flaxseed mixed with warm water
1 1/4 Cups of Whole Wheat Flour
1 t baking powder
Mix wet & dry ingredients. And then prepare…. THE CRUST:
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
1 t Cinnamon
1 TB homemade peanut butter
1 TB Olive Oil
1/3 cups chopped Pecans + Dark Chocolate.
Pour batter of dry & wet ingredients into a long bread loaf pan (oil if it is not a non sticky one). Lightly spread the crust on top and bake for about 40 minutes. Check consistency with a toothpick! Let cool down before taking it out of the pan! And eat away :)
