As you begin preparing this recipe, you may want to first mix up some flax eggs. Using flaxseed meal and water blended together creates a “flax egg” that will help to bind the bread ingredients together.

Ingredients for this vegan banana bread recipe:
- flaxseed meal
- rolled oats or flour
- plant-based milk (unsweetened)
- cacao nibs (or vegan chocolate chips)
- baking powder

To bake this bread recipe with no oil, use parchment paper for lining the bread pan to keep the loaf from sticking.
Once the banana bread is fresh out of the oven, you can let it cool then enjoy it on its’ own or top it off with your favourite plant-based spread.
For a variation on the recipe, you can substitute the chocolate chips with blueberries, walnuts, or other fruit and/or nut combo.
