Vegan Apple Banana Bread will Fill your Kitchen with the Sweet Aroma of Home

I'm always a little bit surprised how easy it is to veganize most baked goods. This one was particularly enjoyable. The tartness of the grated apple mingles beautifully with the sweetness of the banana and brown sugar. But what you'll notice most about the finished product is a tender, moist texture, which I think we can chalk up to the apples and flax egg. The whole-wheat flour melts into the background, providing healthy fibre without hitting you over the head with heaviness. Legit desserts for vegans are pretty few and far between. This one feels light and happy and it provides a beautiful contrasting finish to most meals. It's also a delightful accompaniment for a coffee. More

On the plus side, the recipe makes a 10-12 patties depending on how big you like them, and they freeze well. You can eat half now and freeze the rest for later, which would make your effort now a partial investment toward your future eating. More
