Over ripe bananas and don’t want to trash? Being a vegetarian I bake a lot of eggless cakes, brownies and cookies. Earlier I have posted my recipe for the red velvet brownies, they are the most baked in my house.
Personally I don’t like to eat ripe bananas. But certain times you tend to end up with a bunch of ripe bananas and dont know whats the best way to utilize them. We started this trend after we discovered one of our relatives made a super sponge vanilla Banana bread.
We all loved the vanilla. So we decided to give it a try. To make a more healthier version I tried it with whole wheat just like the whole wheat raspberry muffins. It turned out super tasty!! The sponge was perfect, and I used very minimum amount of sugar to it. It was a successful trial. We also tried one by adding chocolate and guess what?It was as good as a chocolate cake! Wow! Who doesn’t like chocolate. The super soft, chocolate banana bread was now a cake!!
Here is my variation of banana bread loaf wheat wheat flour. Vegans can try it with almond flour and coconut oil. It will turn out more spongy. Check the notes below for vegan recipe.
A perfect bake!! Super spongy, less sugar and most important Vegan!! Also check the other vegan snack and meal recipes on the blog.

- You can use almond flour instead of cake flour to make it vegan and gluten free.
- You can use refined sugar instead of brown sugar
- Oil can be replaced with coconut oil for vegans. (melt coconut oil before use)
- For vegan replace regular milk with oat milk.
- In case you have just 1 or 2 ripe bananas that alright . You might need 3-4 tablespoons of extra milk to adjust the batter consistency and increase the sugar by 1 or 2 tablespoon
- The baking time may differ from oven to oven. It might take anything between 30-40 minutes. Mine was ready in 32 minutes.
