Vegan, simple banana bread with walnuts & chocolate

If there is a pastry that is very easy to prepare without animal products, then it's probably banana bread. Bananas are the ideal substitute for eggs because they give your cake a wonderfully juicy texture and are a perfect binding ingredient. It's very practical that you use bananas for a banana bread anyway, cause the answer for the missing eggs is found very quickly, guys.

The best bananas for vegan banana bread are covered with brown freckles and actually a bit "over the time". They are very sweet, which is why they replace not only the eggs but also the sugar in our recipe. I like bananas the most when they turn from green to yellow. So when I forget to eat my bananas, and they are already turned brown, I always use them to make banana bread. Baking instead of throwing away is the motto!

EDEKA supported us with this recipe, which makes us very happy! They have a pretty large selection of vegan products and everything you need for baking without milk and eggs. For the vegan banana bread, we used EDEKA organic walnut kernels, which are natural and come from certified organic agriculture. We mixed the walnut kernels into the dough but also spread them on the cake before baking. This way, they roast in the oven and harmonize very well with the sweet bananas in the end! The bananas from EDEKA are cultivated in an environmentally and socially friendly way. More information is available here.
