Vegan Miso Banana Bread
This banana bread will knock your socks off! It's addictively salty-sweet, packed full of bananas and walnuts with miso and peanut butter to liven things up for your delicious vegan breakfast!
- ½ cup dates, chopped
- 3 large overripe bananas, mashed with a fork in a bowl
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- ⅛ tsp salt
- ⅓ cup vegetable oil (or other neutral oil)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 5 Tbsp sweet white miso paste
- 2 Tbsp creamy peanut butter
- ½ cup walnuts, chopped
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a loaf pan. Chop the dates and put them in a small bowl. Cover the dates with hot water and let them soak for 10 minutes. Then drain the dates and set aside.
Mash three overripe bananas in a bowl. Set aside for later.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.
In a separate mixing bowl, mix together the oil, vanilla, soaked and drained dates, sweet white miso paste, peanut butter and mashed bananas.
Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until there is no more dry flour visible.Fold in the chopped walnuts
Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour, until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out mostly clean (it won't be perfectly clean, since you want it to still be a little moist with all that banana goodness).
