Vegan Black Sesame Seed Banana Bread

I thought I’d start with a recipe which I know everyone will love – banana bread, but with a twist. Black sesame seeds for extra protein!

A cholesterol free version of a family favorite. No eggs, milk or butter!

This is a regular afternoon treat in my home, we always have over ripe bananas hanging around. One minute they are green, the next they are gaining little brown spots – fast! I serve my sesame banana bread with fresh fruit slices, such as persimmon, orange or clementines. You can watch reels on Instagram to see the method, but it’s a just 2 separate bowls (1 wet + 1 dry) prepared and then mixed together. Add cherries or some seeds for another variation on the recipe.

If you don’t have black sesame seeds, leave them out or add different seeds instead.

I hope you enjoy my vegan recipes, check back soon for more.
