Oma's Easy Banana Bread Recipe (Vegan)

➤ by Oma Gerhild Fulson

Oma's banana bread recipe, super simple, easy, and delicious (and it's vegan)

Oma's easy banana bread recipe is so utterly simple to make! Since it's vegan, everything is just stirred together and it tastes wunderbar! No folding, or creaming, or whipping. Just use a wooden spoon and mix. Bake. Enjoy!


I've needed to include vegan recipes in my recipe box. With one of my grandkids eating this lifestyle, I need to be able to make foods that everyone can enjoy when the family gets together.

That was the basis for creating this recipe. I needed something easy and quick. I needed something vegan and delicious. I needed something to use the over-ripe bananas I had. I NEEDED an EASY banana bread recipe!

I made this banana bread as the birthday cake for my grandson. Everyone enjoyed it. It was so wonderfully moist and nutty!

I was really amazed how easy and quick this banana cake was to make. Even though I normally make banana bread in a loaf pan, using a bundt form made this one look special. All it needed was a sprinkle of powdered sugar over the top. 

I had run out of strawberries, but adding them to the center 'bundt' hole would have looked amazing! Next time!

I've been trying out various vegan recipes after my first attempt at this Simple Vegan Chocolate Cake turned out to be a winner. It's texture and flavor are similar to the chocolate portion of my German marble cake. 

Grab a copy of my own German Cake e-Cookbook in English to help you relive wonderful memories of Oma's kitchen. 

Sharing traditional German cakes, made using easily available ingredients, ... that's such a delicious way to pass on our heritage.

In fact, I used that same recipe and turned them into mini-muffins that tasted almost like brownies!

Using my vegan chocolate cake recipe that's reminiscent for my German marble cake (the chocolate part) and turned them into chocolate brownie mini-muffins. So good!

Above, I used that vegan chocolate cake recipe and turned them into mini-muffins. Only took 15 minutes to bake. Almost tasted like brownies. YUM!
