Whole Wheat Banana Bread

Posted by

I’ve had a crazy couple weeks at work and almost no time to do any cooking. All I’ve been daydreaming about is buying 4 bananas and making banana bread. I’m not joking.

Creating recipes and playing around in the kitchen is really my favorite hobby. It’s my ME time and nothing really matters except making something that’s beautiful and delicious. It’s fun, therapeutic, creative, & instantly gratifying when it’s ready and I get to eat eat eat it!

Finally, it’s Friday night and I’m flooring it to Trader Joe’s. 4 bananas and 102 dollars worth of groceries later, I’m cruising home to make this scrumptious, dense, vegan, oil-free, easy-to-bake, banana bread. Emphasis on BREADΒ because it’s definitely NOT cake, it’s bread!
Let’s go!
