I made this according to the recipe last week and it was REALLY excellent. Not even the sternest omnivore would find a thing wrong with this banana bread, nor would they even think to suspect that it’s vegan.
This week I made a few adjustments to make this a little more in alignment with my personal eating habits. I switched out half of the flour for whole wheat pastry flour, and I cut out roughly 1/4 of the sugar called for. Guess what? It’s still damn amazing banana bread, and it’s really pretty as well. I didn’t do as nice a job of marbling my loaf this week, but it tastes pretty amazing regardless.
The next time I make it I will swap out all of the white flour and I’ll try cutting out an additional 1/4 cup of sugar (not because it’s too sweet tasting, but because I really try to keep my refined sugar usage down to a tiny sprinkle for the most part).

ps. I was initially introduced to this recipe through reading the below linked post by luminousvegans.wordpress.com. Check out their blog for lots of great recipes, it’s rapidly becoming a favourite of mine. The internet and vegan bloggers are an amazing resource for people like myself who are learning how to eat both healthier and more ethically.
