For Glaze


  • Pour the apple cider vinegar into a 1/4 measuring cup. Fill the remaining cup with dairy free milk. Let set for 10 mins (this makes vegan buttermilk)
  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. 
    Spray or grease a 4x8-inch loaf pan very well.
  • In a large bowl, add the peeled bananas and using the back of a fork, mash them well. No large chunks should remain. Try to mash as much as possible. 
  • To the bananas, add in the vegan buttermilk just made, melted butter, applesauce, and vanilla. Whisk together until smooth. 
  • Mix in both of the sugars.
  • Add peanut butter and beat until the mixture is combined.
  • Scrape the bowl down and then sift in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
  • Fold just until combined. 
  • Add to the bowl chopped walnuts or vegan chocolate chips if adding, and gently fold just until combined. Do not overmix.
  • Pour into greased bread pan and tap the bottom of the pan to ensure it's evenly leveled. Do not fill more than 2/3 full.
    *If you have too much batter, make mini muffins or similar with remaining batter after bread is done.
  • Place in oven for 55-60 minutes on the center rack of the oven.  When done, a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. 
  • *The top of the bread should be a deep brown color. If after 45 minutes, your bread needs more time, cover the top with foil and continue cooking in 5 minute intervals until the toothpick comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and place on a cool rack to cool completely before turning out.

For the Glaze

  • While baking, make the glaze by adding powdered sugar to a bowl and whisk in a tablespoon of milk at a time until slightly runny (it should be thick). Add in the vanilla and whisk again. Add more milk until desired consistency if needed.
  • Once bread has cooled, drizzle over the top.
  • Store any leftovers in an air tight container for up to a 3-5 days.
