I’m excited to share with you today 10 Easy Vegan Banana Recipes so you can go all bananas at dessert time! These are some all-time Favorite Banana Recipes you’ll want to include in your regular vegan dessert line-up!
Round ’em up! I decided it was time for a recipe round-up or two. That’s a thought made easier by the fact that I have so many recipes that fit a particular theme.
The comedian Ryan Styles once said, “Never interrupt me when I’m eating a banana.” Well said, Mr. Styles. Bananas are so tasty and versatile.
That’s why I decided to begin my Recipe Round-up series here. How can you go wrong with banana recipes?
Besides, if you’re like me, we end up buying a lot of bananas and we’re not always able to eat them before they brown to a point where they’re inedible in their more natural state. That’s when I decide it’s time to throw them in cake!
A mashed banana makes an excellent egg replacement for many recipes. That’s a handy trick for veganizing your favorite recipes. Bananas will leave a subtle or strong banana flavor to a recipe so be prepared.
Here are some interesting tidbits about bananas found on Wikipedia:
Bananas actually grow pointing up
The banana fruit develops from the flower of plant which is referred to as the Banana Heart. Ahh, that’s so sweet!
Bananas have a high potassium content. I mean, really high. In fact, they have so much potassium, bananas are considered slightly radioactive. Kinda scary, eh? But don’t be alarmed, we potassium in our diet because it’s necessary for heart, kidney and muscles (to name a few).
There are numerous varieties of bananas cultivated across the planet, but we see mostly just one, the cavendish. Believe it or not, the cavendish is not the most flavorful banana, but it is easy to transport so that’s why it is so readily available at our local grocery store.
