Strawberry Banana Bread with glaze (Vegan)





Jump to Recipe





Banana bread is my absolute favorite snack and because I love the strawberry season, I thought, why not combine both?! Actually, I would not call this dessert bread, I would prefer cake 🙂 but since I used my basic banana bread recipe the term “cake” does not quite fit.

Banana bread in combination with strawberries is absolutely delicious. Strawberries make the bread extra moist and at the same time, it tastes so refreshing. Especially if the bread comes directly from the fridge (I highly recommend it!). It is a perfect summer snack!



Vegan Banana Bread with Strawberries



What ingredients are necessary for a vegan banana bread with strawberries?

Because I was in love with my last chocolate banana bread recipe I used the same again for this bread. I slightly changed it a little bit. It’s absolutely easy to make and you only need a few ingredients. Overripe bananas are very important because they give the banana bread a natural sweetness. The riper they are the sweeter the banana bread becomes. If you don’t want to use sugar you can use agave syrup, coconut blossom sugar, maple syrup or other alternatives. In this case, I´ve added sugar. Maybe the sweetness of the bananas is enough for you? Just try it out 🙂

I have also used spelt flour because I prefer to bake with this flour. In addition, I added oats. To make the bread gluten-free you can use gluten-free flour (e.g. buckwheat) or only oats.

This time I chose neutral coconut oil instead of rapeseed oil. The result was actually the same. I love to use oil for this recipe because I like banana bread very moist and with oil it gets a perfect consistency. By the way, if you like to use coconut oil but you don’t like the taste of it in some dishes then neutral coconut oil is already available in supermarkets or online.

Other ingredients that are important for this vegan banana bread are baking powder, apple cider vinegar, vanilla paste and for all chocolate lovers, the chocolate chips are essential! Of course, don’t forget the strawberries for this recipe :-)))))

Preparation of a strawberry glaze

I have to admit I love a sweet, refreshing glaze on my cake and now also on my banana bread. To make the bread taste a bit more like strawberries I thought it´s a perfect idea to brush a glaze on top. But if you want to prepare the bread healthy I wouldn’t recommend to make this glaze. Of course, this bread tastes also great without it.

The glaze consists of only three ingredients, you just need powdered sugar, butter and of course fresh strawberries. However, you don’t need much of the butter but you need a lot of powdered sugar. It´s definitely worth it! A fresh strawberry glaze is absolutely delish. Let the bread cool a bit and then spread the glaze over the top.

Important: You must sieve the powdered sugar, otherwise you will have lumps in your glaze.
