Bourbon Banana Bread

There are thousands of vegan banana bread recipes out there, but I think this one is going to be a fast favorite of ours. Feel free to replace the bourbon with rum, apple juice, or non-dairy milk, if you prefer.

Bourbon Banana Bread


1/2 cup vegan butter (check out the recipe at our website)
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups mashed bananas
1/4 cup bourbon
1 teaspoon lime juice
2 cups sifted all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts


Preheat the oven to 375. Spray or oil an 8 x 4 inch loaf pan.

Cream the vegan butter and sugar together. Add the mashed bananas, bourbon, and lime juice, and blend until all is smooth.

Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together and mix into the banana mixture. Add nuts/

Scoop the batter into the prepared loaf pan, and bake for 45 minutes to one hour. Check at 45 minutes. If the top is getting too browned, place a tent of foil over the pan for the last bit of baking. The bread is done when a knife comes out clean.
