Banana Nut Bread

Whenever I want to make something really simple, that is sweet but not overly sweet, which means it would be perfect for both dessert and breakfast or brunch, I think of banana bread.

I grew up on this stuff because at my house, my mom always overestimated the number of bananas we could actually eat, which meant many were overly brown by the end of the week. This meant two things, over the weekend we would have our fair share of my mom's famous bananas foster, and the smell of homemade banana bread (which in my house was served with salted butter and jam on the side... go figure!) would fill every corner of the house. It's the perfect use for bananas that have gone over to the dark side.

What's not to love about banana bread? It's moist, dense, sweet, and with that perfect pairing of banana, walnuts and cinnamon that go together so well.

Today we're teaching you how to make this baby thanks to our partnership with our lovely friends at Vegan Outreach who we made this video for. Make sure to follow them through their blog and youtube channel, they produce so much great content for new vegans and seasoned vegans alike, and we just love the work they're doing to help animals!

A WEEK'S WORTH OF VEGAN BREAKFAST IDEAS

One of the most frequently asked questions I receive is what do you eat on a daily basis as a vegan. For me it's a no brainer since I actually have more variety in my diet now than before I was vegan, but I completely understand how this can be a complete mystery to someone eating a standard meat centered diet. I can understand it because I was once that person that thought all vegetarians and vegans ate were beans and rice. Breakfast especially can seem daunting if you are anything like I was, a bacon and egg breakfast eater all the way. Today I'm de-mystifying vegan breakfasts for you, and trust me it's quite possibly the easiest meal to veganize with just a couple of adjustments. It's also a meal in which you'll get to eat vegan versions of your favorites more than you ever thought possible.

If you follow our weekly Monday blog posts From our Kitchen Table, it's likely that you already have a ton of breakfast ideas under your belt. Every week I share what we've been eating the week before in the hopes that it will inspire your cooking, but today I'm giving you 14 amazing breakfast ideas that are healthy, filling and simply delicious, two to choose from for every day of the week!
