Vegan Chocolate Chip Baobab Banana Bread

Vegan Chocolate Chip Baobab Banana Bread

We absolutely LOVE the smell and taste of freshly baked bread and this recipe never disappoints! You'll love biting into delicious bits of banana and chocolate chips and the sprinkling of baobab will leave you feeling energised and bright. 

Ingredients:
Makes 1 loaf

  • 3 medium overripe bananas
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk (almond, cashew, coconut, hemp)
  • 1/3 cup oil (vegetable/sunflower oil/light olive oil – you could also use coconut oil but it may slightly change the flavor)
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar/lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1-2 tbsp Organic Baobab Powder
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt (optional)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 cups vegan chocolate chips
Method:

Preheat your oven to 180°C (350F). Grease a 23x13cm (9″x 5”) nonstick loaf pan with cooking spray, or rub it with some vegetable oil.

In a large bowl mash all 3 bananas – we like to leave a few small chunks of banana. Next add in the vanilla, oil, milk & lemon juice/apple cider vinegar. Continue to mix until combined.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baobab powder, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon (if using), salt & baking powder.

Next add in the wet ingredients to the dry and combine – do not over mix. Fold in chocolate chips, and then pour into your greased pan.

Bake for about 45-55 minutes (all ovens vary), or until loaf has risen and is slightly cracked. It is done when you can dip in a toothpick into the centre and it comes out clean.

Remove pan & allow time for it to cool down before removing, (usually about 15 minutes). You may need to run a butter knife around the pan the help with loosen edges for removal.

Slice & enjoy, or save a few slices in the freezer for later!
