Banana bread is one of those foods that really requires no introduction because it is THAT good. It’s one of my absolute favorite things to bake, eat and share with everyone. I’m very into this recipe – it’s super simple and vegan! Even though I’ve ditched the eggs, it’s still perfectly moist. I promise you would never know that it’s vegan. Make it and see for yourself! Enjoy!
