Best Vegan Chocolate Banana Bread Recipe

I‘m so excited to share this recipe with you guys, because, I’m not lying when I say this is the BEST Vegan Chocolate Banana Bread I’ve ever made! I‘m very happy that one of the most beloved recipes here on my blog is my classic vegan banana bread. It’s awesome that so many of you have loved changing it up by adding chocolate into it. I really love this idea, but I think when you make it with chocolate, there need to be some changes from my classic recipe. Changes that make it softer and moister! So I came up with the idea to create the perfect recipe. One which is soft, rich and very chocolatey! Finally, here it is! 😃🙌🏻

The perfect breakfast and dessert!

Have I mentioned how much I love banana bread and chocolate? Well, in case I haven’t, let me just say that I really do! One great thing about Vegan Chocolate Banana Bread is that it’s healthier than chocolate cake, even though it almost tastes like vegan chocolate cake. So it’s the perfect sweet treat for any time of the day! I really love making it in advance and keeping it in the fridge for the following days so that I always have a quick and yummy snack on hand. But to be honest, it never lasts that long in my kitchen, because it’s too delicious not to eat all of it! Starting by enjoying it for breakfast, then later as an afternoon dessert with ice cream on top and maybe also before going to bed as a late night snack with extra peanut butter, haha!

How to make Vegan Banana Bread

Another great thing about this recipe is that it’s very easy to make! All you need is one bowl, a spoon, a fork, and a few simple ingredients! You don’t even need a food processor, mixer or blender! Actually, the batter is mixed together in less than 5 minutes, depending on how long you need to peel the bananas maybe, haha – okay, just joking! 😃 But I‘m not joking when I say that it really is very quick and easy to make!

As I mentioned before, we need only a few ingredients! Just flour, cocoa, baking powder, ripe bananas, sugar (or another sweetener), oil, non-dairy milk, vanilla extract, and dairy-free chocolate chips for the topping. Anyways, the chocolate chips are not necessary for this recipe but if you’re like me, you can never have enough chocolate!

Can I make gluten-free Banana Bread?

If you want to make a gluten-free Vegan Chocolate Banana Bread, you can substitute a gluten-free flour blend 1:1. If you can’t find it in a store or online shop, you can also use gluten-free oat flour or make your own oat flour. Simply put gluten-free oats into a food processor or grinder and process into oat flour. Just keep in mind that when using oat flour, your vegan banana bread will not be as soft as when you use a lighter flour. Honestly, I haven’t tried using other flours yet, but feel free to try it. I recommend adjusting the liquid and adding more non-dairy milk if needed because different types of flour absorb less or more liquid.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour or spelt flour (160g) or sub gluten-free flour*
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder (50g)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 very ripe large bananas
  • 1/3 cup + 1 tbsp non-dairy milk (100ml)
  • 1/3 cup oil (75g)
  • 1/2 cup sugar (115g) or to taste
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • Chocolate Chips for topping (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350˚F (175˚C). Grease and line a 9,8-inch (25cm) loaf pan with parchment paper so that there is an overhang on both sides.
  • Place the flour, cornstarch, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl and whisk together.
  • Mash the bananas with a fork. Add to a measuring jar along with the non-dairy milk, oil, sugar, vanilla extract and apple cider vinegar. Stir well to combine.
  • Pour this mixture into the flour mixture and just stir until combined.
  • Fill the batter into the prepared pan. Optionally, sprinkle over chocolate chips. Bake for about 40-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. (If you want a moist banana bread, make sure not to overbake it.)
  • Let cool completely in the pan. Then using the parchment paper to remove it.
  • Slice and enjoy! 😊

Notes

  • To make this banana bread gluten-free, I recommend using a gluten-free flour blend 1:1.
  • If using another flour, such as oat flour or whole grain flour, keep in mind that your banana bread won’t get as fluffy and soft as when using a lighter flour. Also, please make sure to adjust the liquid by adding more non-dairy milk, if needed, because different flours absorb different amounts of liquid.
  • You can use any sweeteners you like, such as maple syrup, agave syrup, coconut sugar or other.

        Bianca, if I wanted to use oat flour, would I increase my almond milk to 1/2cup?

        • Bianca Zapatka 4. April 2019 / 23:44

          I’m not sure how much additional milk you’ll need but I think 1/2 cup sounds good!

    But it has all the chocolate flavour and all the moist from the banana, and the best part, definitely easy to prepare!

    I made this yummy chocolate banana bread yesterday and absolutely loved it. It was so fluffy and chocolatey. Barely was able to stop myself from eating it all at once 😀 I substituted the oil for 60 g of coconut yoghurt for an oil free bread and it worked like a charm. Thanks for this great recipe, will try more of your stuff!!

    Just love this receipe- always a winner! It’s moist and deli and simply super yum! I’m not using oil, but rather nut butter & dates instead, and like to mix approx. 120g spelt flour & 50g whole rain spelt flour with some 50g of fine oats plus 20g of grounded nuts, which works just perfectly! Using this receipe almost every week (huge banana bread addiction, heyo :D), and always try twisting it up. Yesterday I added peanut butter, chopped peanuts and hazelnuts <3. The only challenge you might be experiencing is you can't stop eating ;). So make sure there are always some ripe bananas around (=

    Thanks, Bianca, for your daily inspiration! You're a gem!

    Also, I thinking of make it like a sandwich but I don’t know what kind of filling to use. What do you think?
