Vegan Banana Bread and Lemon Drizzle

Vegan Blueberry Banana Bread

This vegan banana loaf is the perfect naturally sweet snack or breakfast and is absolutely delicious smothered in your favourite nut butter too! At just 126 calories per slice and made with coconut flour, its a great guilt-free way to satisfy your sweet tooth. The texture is slightly different to a moist and squishy banana bread made with sugar and ordinary flour but don’t worry - the flavour more than makes up for it! Not only do the blueberries add a healthy dose of anti-oxidants, they add an amazing purple colour and hit of sharpness which goes perfectly with the sweet banana flavour.

Vegan Blueberry Banana Bread

Ingredients:

Makes 12 slices

  • 200g coconut flour (I use GroovyFood Co. - always!)

  • 2 large mashed overripe bananas

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 50g fresh blueberries

     

Method:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 170C.

  2. Grease a loaf tin (I use a 2lb loaf tin).

  3. Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl - coconut flour, baking soda and baking powder and set to one side.

  4. In another bowl, combine all other ingredients except the blueberries - coconut oil, vanilla extract, honey, alond milk, mashed bananas.

  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well.

  6. Finally slowly stir in the blueberries untill all ingredients are combined.

  7. Smooth the batter into the loaf tin evenly.

  8. Bake in the oven for 45 minutes.

  9. Leave to sit in a warm oven for a further 10 minutes if not fully baked (turn the oven off for this part if you wish to bake for a little longer).

Vegan Lemon Loaf

Vegan Lemon Drizzle

This vegan lemon loaf is the perfect substitute for the sugar-packed Lemon Drizzle classic. While i’m all for a slice of lemon drizzle with a cuppa, I wouldn’t hugely recommend having it for brekkie every day… THIS however, might just be an option. I’m not vegan nor did I plan to make a vegan loaf but when I came to bake I realised I had no eggs - so decided to turn this into the perfect opportunity for a vegan bake! Due to the lack of eggs and use of coconut flour, the loaf is quite soft in texture so don’t quite be expecting a moist fluffy slice of lemon drizzle FYI… BUT I promise you the flavour is AMAZING and the lemon juice and coconut sugar give it the perfect sweetness!

Ingredients:

Makes 12 slices

  • 200g coconut flour

  • 120g coconut sugar

  • 2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil (I use GroovyFood Co. for all 3 coconut products)

  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

  • 150ml of unsweetened almond milk (you can sub for oat/soy/coconut if preferred)

  • 100g of almond or coconut yoghurt (I always use Alpro for both this and the milk)

  • 200ml of freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • Zest of one large lemon

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Method:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 170C (fan oven)

  2. Grease a loaf tin (I use a 2lb loaf tin)

  3. Place the coconut flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda & lemon zest and mix together.

  4. In a separate, larger bowl combine all wet ingredients: lemon juice, vanilla extract, yoghurt & milk.

  5. Tip the dry mixture into the wet ingredients and stir together.

  6. Spread evenly into the loaf tin.

  7. Bake in the centre of the oven for 50 minutes.

  8. Ensure the loaf has fully cooled before tipping out of the loaf tin and cutting. Enjoy!

I spent most of my earlier life trying to be 'thinner', 'prettier' or 'better' and it ruined so many occasions for me growing up. Now I focus on helping women (and men) try to find a love for movement & a sustainable way to lead a healthier lifestyle, one which makes them feel strong & capable, but primarily one that makes them feel good & happy!
