The PERFECT healthy vegan banana bread recipe! Comes together in under an hour and is the ultimate healthy sweet treat! 




  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large bananas
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seed
  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a loaf pan and set aside. 
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. 
  3. In a separate small bowl, peel and mash the bananas, making sure they are finely mashed. Whisk in the ground flax seed, almond milk, brown sugar, and olive oil
  4. Add the banana mixture to the flour mixture and mix together until no flour streaks remain. 
  5. Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until a sharp knife inserted into the center comes out clean. 


  • Usually, 2 bananas equal about 1 1/2 cups of mashed banana. 
  • You can replace the brown sugar with granulated sugar, but the bread is going to come out much paler in color!
