This deliciously moist vegan banana bread will become a favorite in no time! It’s easy to make and has just the right banana flavor.


  • 2 flax eggs (2 tablespoons ground flax seed + 5 tablespoons water)
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 2 cups mashed overripe bananas (about 4 large or 5 to 6 medium bananas)
  • 1/3 cup neutral oil (grapeseed, sunflower, vegetable)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (or coconut sugar)*
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • Coconut oil, for greasing the pan


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Start the flax eggs and allow them to sit while preparing the ingredients.
  3. Grease an 8 or 9-inch loaf pan with coconut oil.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
  5. In a medium bowl, mash the bananas with a fork. Whisk in the oil, brown sugar, vanilla, and flax eggs with a fork. Stir in the dry ingredients, just until the dough comes together.
  6. Pour the dough into the prepared bread pan. Sprinkle the top with brown sugar.
  7. Bake 60 to 65 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean (if you have a thermometer, the interior temperature should be 200 degrees Fahrenheit). The exact bake time depends on your oven and the size of your loaf pan. Cool completely before slicing.


*You can increase to 2/3 cup if you prefer sweetener bread. We preferred the flavor lightly sweet with 1/2 cup. The sweetness also depends on the ripeness of the bananas.
