Helloooooo food maniacs!
Our recipe today is a bit unusual for us, because it’s vegan! We did this super delicious banana bread with apples, raisins and lots of other cool stuff. We glazed it with healthy nutella!
So this means that you will have two recipes today in one single post – LUCKY YOU!
- For the banana bread
- 3 fully ripe bananas
- 2 apples (grated)
- 50 gr of raisins
- 100 gr brown sugar
- 1tsp cinnamon powder
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 75 ml vegetable oil
- 3 tsp of baking powder
- 225 gr spelt flour
- Mash the bananas with the oil
- Add all the other ingredients and mix very well
- Cook for about 50 minutes in a preheated oven to 180 celsius
The only thing left is the healthy nutella glaze. This is quite simple – you only need 3 tbsp of hazelnut butter, 50 gr of cacao powder and 1 tbsp of maple syrup. Mix them well and there you have it – guilt free chocolate glaze.
Having hazelnut butter is good for you. One cup of hazelnuts contains 86% of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin E. Vitamin E has been proven to protect skin from the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation, such as skin cancer and premature aging.
Hazelnuts are rich in unsaturated fats, the kind that are actually good for the heart.

It is believed by many experts that bananas were the first fruit cultivated by humans. Alexander the Great first came across bananas in India in 327 B.C. More facts about bananas – here!
We hope that you will try doing this vegan banana bread and if you do – ENJOY!
That’s all for today – see you soon.
