Treat of the Week: Vegan Banana Apple Chunk Bread

I came home late from work the other night and, the moment I entered the hallway leading to the living room, I was hit with an incredible smell.  It was a sweet smelling aroma that I would recognize anywhere - freshly baked banana bread!  My tired body immediately woke up and headed straight for the kitchen where my assumption was verified.  Liza had baked us one of the most amazing smelling banana breads I had ever encountered.  Not only that, but it was completely vegan, tremendously healthy, and apparently easy to make.  And, to top it all off, I would not be posting this recipe right now if this bread wasn't absolutely delicious in every way!  It's sweet, ridiculously moist, and surprisingly light.  It can really be eaten at any time of the day and the prep work is so minimal, you can make the whole thing (from start to finish) in just over an hour.  Enjoy and, if you didn't believe me about the previous recipes, do yourself a favor and try this one - you will not regret it!  Please leave comments and tell your friends.  Let's get some banter going!!!

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 apple, peeled and diced
  • 2/3 cup Sucanat or sugar (Liza used Raw Agave - a staple of any healthy sweet tooth diet!)
  • 1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour (Liza used Bob's Almond Flour to make it gluten free)
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.  Lightly spray (or grease with butter/butter substitute) a nine-inch loaf pan.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, mash the bananas with a fork.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.  Pour into greased pan.
  4. Bake for 45-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out dry (Liza baked ours for about 70 minutes - it could have been our oven or the flour substitution but it still came out perfectly - just keep an eye on it)
  5. Cool in pan for 15 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack.
  6. Enjoy!  It doesn't get any easier than this recipe!
