Coffee Cake Banana Bread [Vegan]
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 ripe bananas, mashed (~1.5 cups)
- 2/3 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
- 2 flax eggs (2 tbs ground flax + 6 tbs warm water)
- 1/4 cup dairy free milk, unsweetened
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 4 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Grease and/or line a 9x5 loaf pan.
- For the flax eggs, combine ground flax and warm water in a small bowl, stir, and set aside to thicken.
- In a medium bowl, combine all dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt) and stir to combine.
- In a large bowl, mash bananas using a fork or masher.
- Add melted coconut oil and sugar to bananas and stir together.
- Add in flax eggs, dairy free milk and vanilla extract and stir until combined.
- Add dry ingredient mixture to the wet ingredients and mix together until fully incorporated.
- Prepare the streusel topping by mixing all dry ingredients together (flour, brown sugar and cinnamon), then adding in melted coconut oil. Stir well until you have a course wet mixture.
- Pour 1/2 of the banana bread batter into the pan. Sprinkle 1/2 of the streusel topping onto the batter.
- Pour in the remaining banana bread batter, and top with the rest of the streusel. Pat down the streusel so its lightly embedded into the batter.
- Bake in preheated oven for 55-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the loaf comes out clean. I covered my loaf in tinfoil at about 40 minutes to prevent the top from overcooking.
- Allow loaf to fully cool before removing from pan and slicing. Once cool, cut into 8 slices.
