1 Bowl Vegan Chocolate Walnut Banana Bread

Banana bread is easy to make and it’s always a crowd-pleaser. This vegan version is soft, flavorful, and sprinkled with chocolate chips and walnuts. It’s mixed in one bowl so clean up is minimal.

How ripe should the bananas be?

The best bananas for banana bread are the ones that are way too ripe to be eaten. They should be heavily streaked with brown/black and the inside should be very mushy.

Why is it so important not to overmix quick bread?

Overmixing can cause quick bread to be tough, bake unevenly or cause elongated holes. The more you mix your batter, the more gluten is developing in the bread – which is great for a yeast-risen, chewy loaf, but not so great when you’re hoping for a tender, soft quick bread. Quick bread that has been overmixed will be dense and rubbery.

How to store banana bread:

Banana bread doesn’t last long before losing its freshness. To keep it fresh longer, keep it wrapped in plastic or foil. Refrigerating tightly wrapped banana bread can also extend the shelf life.
