I am not a vegan but, as a vegetarian, I do try and limit the animal products I consume by opting for vegan options as frequently as I can. Since the beginning of July I have also become more aware of my waste and have cut down on single-use and plastic products (I will do a separate post about this journey another time).

Anyway, since my last post with the banana bread recipe, I have played around with a vegan version. My son's Dad, Kris (who happens to be vegan) suggested I try soaked chia seeds to replace the eggs. This worked but, it changed the texture (more dense) and flavour (more nutty and less sweet) - needless to say, my seven year old was not a big fan! He then suggested I use bananas instead of egg but, since the recipe already asked for bananas, I was not sure if this would work... But, boy, did it work well! So, below is the new, improved, cruelty-free banana bread recipe which tastes EXACTLY like the original recipe!

If you give it a try, comment below or on my Instagram page and let me know what you thought.
