plant based milk

You can sub any milk and continue to follow the amounts in the recipe.
This banana bread recipe uses mashed bananas insetad of any oil or eggs. It keeps the bread moist and keeps it from getting dry. If you dont have bananas you can use any pureed or mashed food that is a similar texture (i.e. applesauce, pumpkin puree, butternut squash puree, etc)
How ripe should my bananas be?
The riper the better!! I like to use bananas when theyre turning brown, or once they’ve already turned fully brown. This way they are sweeter! If a banana has already turned partially or fully brown but youre not ready to make this bread yet, you can throw them in the freezer and keep them for up to 2-3 months until you are ready to make this! Once you’re ready, let the bananas thaw by sitting out for 2-3 hours on a papertowel to absorb the moisture from defrosting, or else it will make a mess! Also, once the banana thaws it will be a mushy texture which is actually perfect for this recipe!
This Dairy free, gluten free banana bread from pancake mix recipe calls for apple sauce. You can choose either unsweetened or sweetened apple sauce based on how sweet you want the banana bread to be. Store bought is fine and if you do not have it you can make your own applesauce at home. The idea is to add moisture to the recipe. If you do not have apples you can use mashed bananas or pumpkin puree instead. This recipe is vegan so make sure to use a vegan substitute
