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!

Almond gosh! Another pumpkin spice thing?! 🎃
⠀
It's not new but I recently tried @traderjoes' Pumpkin Spice Almond Beverage. It's vegan, gluten-free, soy free, and lactose and dairy free.
⠀
To be honest, the only pumpkin spice thing I've tried is the drink from Starbucks and I rarely go to Starbucks. This has a strong cinnamon punch. If anything, it should be called 'Cinnamon Almond Beverage' because that's all I taste.
⠀
It's not too sweet. It's got a creamy feel and is slightly smooth. You can definitely see the spices in the drink. It's not the greatest but not the worst. It actually grows on you.

Would I repurchase it? Nah. I'll stick to the traditional almond drinks.

I like saving the Earth for future generations and other species a choco-lat more than eating meat 🤷🏻‍♀️🍰
⠀
Had the Chocolate Caramel Cake from @ikeacanada at the end of September. Very rich and definitely hits that sweet tooth! While I've been vegetarian for a bit over a month now, that doesn't mean I can't eat delicious foods. The stigma against vegetarian/vegan food is ridiculous. I've been vegan in the past and I've had just as good vegan/vegetarian food as meat-containing products. If you know how flavours work, then you know how to make something delicious.
⠀
Also- I'm not shaming people for eating meat. But, with climate change, it's best if we all eat meat a little less. The carbon footprint in the meat industry is a great one and we all can do our part. Have Meatless Mondays, or make it a habit to make at least one meatless meal a day.
⠀
Climate change is natural phenomenon. It will happen and has happened before. BUT, it's the rate that it is occurring at which is the problem. Humans and other species on this Earth will not survive—the Earth will and adapt. So, let's try and keep the Earth habitable for all the babies and their future kids, and all the other species.

Thank you @influensterca for sending me this #complimentary bottle of @Dove Body Wash Mousse! Already loving the smell from the "scratch and sniff" part but cannot wait to actually try it out!

Also- keeping it real with this selfie taken in the bathroom, where I'll be using this product ✌️

There's nothing fishy about these golden filets 🐟
⠀
Before I went vegetarian, I RARELY ate fish. The main fishes I ate were tuna and eel. But I've had fish and chips before, so I know what to compare when trying out the @garden Golden Filets.
⠀
Maybe because of the grease, it really gave off that fishy, seafood smell I've encountered with fish and chips here. But after a while, it subsided and I was able to enjoy it. The soy taste isn't as prominent in this as other Gardein products but you can still see that because of it, the texture isn't the same. However, it is a good alternative for new vegans/vegetarians that cut out fish.
