We’ve been doing a lot of vegan baking in lockdown and despite the craziness of the world right now, we’re committed to sharing the love with some of our favourite and most delicious vegan banana bread recipes. Seeing as we have a little (ok maybe a lot) more time on our hands, these recipes are getting more creative than ever!
We’re a huge fan of banana bread (especially the vegan and gluten free kind), but we wanted to try something a little different so we teamed up with Amy from vegan food blog Nourishing Amy to bring you this mouthwatering banana bread donut recipe. It’s made using our healthy banana bread mix and is decorated with chocolate and pecans, so don’t worry, there’s lots of treats in store.
