Vegan Banana Bread

Vegan Banana Bread

The best banana bread ever (in my humble opinion)

Now, lets just get it out of the way.. we know everybody has taken lockdown as an opportunity to bake mass amounts of banana bread and we must admit we got sucked into the hype. This however, led us to the best banana bread recipe that we have found. I will put my reputation on this recipe. Anyway, enough about my love for this vegan banana bread! Go and try it for yourself:
