Blueberry Dark Chocolate Banana Bread (Vegan!)

Banana bread

Blueberry dark chocolate banana bread? Yes, it is as good as it sounds! I am a complete novice to baking–as in, I can even mess up cake mixes–but this recipe is foolproof, as well as vegan and low-fat. Adapted from Treehugger.



1 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. sugar

1/4 cup agave nectar or other sweetener

1/4 cup applesauce

1 large ripe banana

1/3 cup blueberries

1/3 cup dark chocolate chips



Mash the banana in a bowl, then add in the applesauce and agave. Combine with a fork or mixer until smooth. Add in the dry ingredients a little at a time, stirring until your batter is sticky and well mixed. Fold in the blueberries and chocolate chips, then pour into a greased or non-stick baking tin. Sprinkle a bit of sugar on top for extra crusty deliciousness, and cook at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the bread comes out smooth.

Yields 4 slices. I used a 9″ pie tin because that’s the only baking dish I own (read: novice), but you can double the recipe to fill a proper loaf tin. You may want to–this will disappear fast!
