Here’s a healthy delicious recipe for Sesame Crusted Banana Bread. Feel free to use sourdough starter (optional) and keep it VEGAN (also optional). Either way, you’ll love how moist and flavorful it is, and the addition of fresh ginger and sesame seeds give it a beautiful unique twist!
I have a confession. I think this may be the first banana bread I’ve ever made! It’s my friend Tonia’s recipe and turned out wonderfully flavorful and moist and makes good use of the sourdough starter (optional) we both have in our fridge.
This Banana Bread recipe is vegan, or feel to use eggs- either way you’ll love the texture and flavors here!
How to Make Vegan Banana Bread
What I love about this Banana Bread recipe is the beautiful Sesame Seed Crust!
Step One: To make the crust, oil a loaf and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
I you want to keep the Banana Bread vegan, make “flax eggs” – mixing ground flax seeds and water. Otherwise whisk 2 eggs.
Step Three: Mash 1 cup of ripe banana.
Step Four: Measure out 3/4 cup of sourdough starter. ( or sub this with ¾ more mashed banana- see recipe notes).
Step Five: Peel and grate some ginger.
Fresh grated ginger gives the Banana Bread and nice flavor- feel free to add a little more for extra punch.
My husband likes walnuts but do as you please.
Step Seven : Pour the battering the sesame lined loaf pan.
To create a pretty top, split a banana (less ripe is better here) and sprinkle with brown sugar or coconut sugar.
Step Eight: Bake in a 350F oven for 50-55 minutes.
Remove the Banana Bread from the pan and behold the lovely crust!Step Nine: Make the Maple Tahini Sauce – it is seriously good- so please don’t skip this!!!
Slice up the banana bread, toast it if you like and drizzle on the sauce.
Whether you have sourdough starter to use up or not, we think you’ll love this Vegan Banana Bread!
