Healthy but Oh-So-Damn-Good Banana Bread

This can either be vegan friendly (how I make it) or for those of you who love your dairy, not vegan. This is so tasty and full of seeds and yummy stuff. I created this one day trying to make a vegan alternative to the regular banana bread my mom makes (it was pretty basic--this is way better).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. Prepare a loaf pan (I like to oil it then line it with wax paper so it doesn't stick at all).
  3. Mix sugars and melted margarine in a large bowl.
  4. Pre-mix your fake eggs (or beat your regular eggs) and add them.
  5. Mash the 3 ripe bananas and mix those in too.
  6. Add soda, vanilla, cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg.
  7. Mix in the flour, oats and wheatgerm.
  8. Now add all your seeds and raisins.
  9. Place mixture into the pan and cook in the oven for an hour (should be nice and brown on top, if not give it more time).
  10. And there you have it! enjoy!


Most Helpful good. I omitted the white sugar, and I thought it was sweet enough. Love all the fruit and seeds!

This turned out very nicely! I subbed Splenda for the white sugar, omitted the raisins and added some mini chocolate chips instead. I made 4 mini loaves. I will be making this again!

I made this with eggs and substituted sesame seeds for the flax seeds since whole flax seed doesn't get digested. I also used half wheat germ and half ground flax so I would still get the benefit of flax. I also omitted the white sugar because of the sweetness from the banana, raisins and the brown sugar. It was plenty sweet. Last change, sorry for all the tweaks, I added 1 tsp. baking powder as the healthy ingredients used are fairly heavy so I thought it could use a bit more leavening. Adding the baking powder worked very well. This recipe is so delicious! It is a keeper in my family and one I'm proud to serve as breakfast. Thank you for posting it Eryn.
