Vegan Marbled Banana Bread


During the last week of my Vegan Challenge, I wanted to bake a vegan sweet of some sort. I looked for the easiest recipe and the one with the least amount of ingredients as possible. I found the Vegan Marbled Banana Bread by Post Punk Kitchen, and it was perfect.

I didn’t have all the ingredients so I had to go out and buy them. I also had to wait for the bananas to ripen enough.

To make this banana bread, the ingredients list and directions can all be found at Post Punk Kitchen. I did make a second loaf with reduced sugar for my Grandma.

Here are the ingredient amounts I had for the second batch that I made:

  • 3 riped bananas
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/3 unsweetened almond milk
  • 3/4 baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 6 tablespoons boiling water

For 1 cup of mashed bananas in the original recipe, it’s about 3 average sized bananas. I used three in most of my batches but I think 3 1/2 to 4 bananas is best.

You can play around with how you make the bread look marbled. The first time I had my younger cousin swirl the cocoa mix throughout the whole batter. But the second loaf, I decided to make it look marble-y.

One thing you have to be careful of is over mashing the bananas. A problem I had was soapy taste from the bananas because it was over mashed. To ensure that this won’t happen, I suggest getting an actual mixer. I mashed the bananas by hand so that could be why.

If you do try this out, it’s better to eat it fresh. Otherwise, if it’s pre-made, heat it up so it tastes as if it just came out of the oven!

Eat. Snap. Post.

I don't like olives—leaf me alone! 🥬
⠀
Salads don't really fill up my stomach, so I rarely order them as my main entrée. However, when I am looking for something light, I'll order one.
⠀
When I took @xstephanieeee and @alavia to @3brasseursca before one of the Duke Canada basketball games, I got this pasta salad. I forgot the name of this dish but it's on the lunch menu. I'm not a fan of olives and I knew they'd be in this salad, but I figured it'd be just a few olives. Boy, was I wrong! This was like an olive dump!
⠀
If you don't like olives, I'd highly avoid this particular pasta salad.

Throwback to last July at the Burlington Food Truck festival. Since they were featured on 'You Gotta Eat Here!', I tried the Pulled Pork Beanasaurus from Sul Irmaos Smokehouse.
⠀
As you can tell, it's a sandwich with mess written all over it. It was stacked with pulled pork, chili, coleslaw, and fried mac and cheese bites. Taste-wise, it was okay. The fried mac and cheese bites placed on top didn't elevate the sandwich as I hoped it would. It didn't provide the cheesiness I wanted it to.
