Vegan Chocolate Banana Bread

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 310g (2 cups) spelt flour
  • 30g (1/4 cup) cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 180ml (2/3 cup) maple syrup, plus extra, to drizzle
  • 125ml (1/2 cup) unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 80ml (1/3 cup) light olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons hot water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • Cacao nibs, to sprinkle (optional)


Step 1
Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan forced. Lightly grease a 7cm-deep, 11 x 21cm loaf pan. Line the base and sides with baking paper, allowing the paper to overhang over the 2 long sides.
Step 2
Whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking powder and cinnamon in a bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the maple syrup, almond milk, oil, water and vanilla. Stir until just combined. Stir in the mashed banana. Transfer mixture to the prepared pan.
Step 3
Bake the banana bread for 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Serve drizzled with extra maple syrup and sprinkled with cacao nibs, if you like.
