We have doubled the consumption of bananas in this household since having a child. R eats a whole banana everyday, but every once in a while we end up with a few that get too ripe. We like our bananas almost green and so the life of a banana in our household is very short.
I hate wasting food, so when the bananas get a little too soft for our tastes, I bake banana bread. Sometimes I buy extra bananas just so when they ripen, I can bake banana bread. What can I say? I like baked goods.
So today, I am sharing with you a dairy-free version of this classic: Dairy Free Banana Bread recipe!
These days there are a million versions of Banana Bread recipes on the web, but I am a no-nonsense baker. Unless I am hosting the Queen, you won’t see me sifting the flour or using several bowls for one recipe. These days, I bake during nap times, so I need things to be fast and fool-proof.
That is why I love this recipe! No need to separate ingredients, just dump everything in a bowl and you are good to go. By using parchment paper instead of greasing the pan, I also cut on cleaning time and can easily take the loaf out without having to scrape my loaf pan. Win-win!
I talked about taking time to relax during nap time instead of doing everything else in one of my Instagram posts and there is nothing more relaxing than grabbing a cup of tea and a slice of this dairy free banana bread and enjoying a moment of silence.
Mom life is hard and sometimes, you just need to recharge so you can do it all over again for a few more hours. So my friends, if you are needing some comfort food and down time, bake this dairy free banana bread for yourself and enjoy it! You deserve it!
