Betty Crocker’s Banana Bread…Veganized

The best simple one bowl Betty Crocker’s Banana Bread…Veganized! This healthier Betty Crocker’s Banana Bread…Veganized is oil-free when made with vegan butter and studded with walnuts.

It has that classic shiny outer crust and soft interior. A slice is perfect for breakfast, brunch or an after-school snack. I wanted this recipe to taste like the classic recipe.

Vegan baking can be a little bit like Goldilocks in the classic fairy tale. Home cooks can find one recipe to be too dry, the next too moist; another one can be too sweet, but the next is not sweet enough.

Happy ending alert: This Betty Crocker’s Banana Bread…Veganized recipe is “just right” in every way.
