  • 350 g Ripe Bananas (Approx. 4 medium bananas)
  • 60 ml Vegetable oil (I used Sunflower)
  • 150 g Palm sugar (you may use jaggery powder, coconut sugar or any powdered sweetener of choice)
  • 2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 120 ml non-dairy milk
  • 180 g whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 50 g cocoa powder


  1. In a large food processor, add the bananas, milk, oil, vanilla, salt and sugar. Blend until smooth.

  2. Sift in the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder and cocoa) and just pulse the mixture until smooth. Do not over mix.

  3. If you don't have a food processor, you can do this in a bowl, just use a fork to mash the bananas and mix the ingredients with a whisk and a spatula.

  4. Grease and line a standard loaf pan (9x5 or 8.5x3.5 inch). Pour the prepared mixture into the loaf pan and bake in a preheated oven at 180 C for 45-50 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.

  5. Let the bread cool to the touch in the pan itself on a wire rack before inverting it out to cool completely. Slice it only after it is completely cool.

  6. Store the banana bread in the refrigerator. You can have it cold or warm it up in the microwave. I love having mine cold with a dollop of nutella (you can use any vegan alternative)
