Vegan Banana Bread

Health Benefits Of Banana 

Bananas have many health benefits and can be consumed for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Some of the nutrients contained in bananas are potassium, vitamin C, vitamin B6, magnesium, copper, fiber, and protein.

Eating bananas is also a good way to maintain blood sugar levels, aid with digestion, help to maintain heart health, assist with weight loss, and are easy to include in your diet.

Bananas are also very filling and will prevent you from feeling hungry for several hours. This will significantly assist those who are formulating weight loss plans. In addition, a medium banana contains only 102 calories.

Bananas also contain bioactive plant compounds such as dopamine and catechin. The dopamine which comes from bananas acts as an antioxidant and the catechin can assist with reducing the risk of heart disease.

I love that a recipe as delicious as this gluten-free banana bread can also pack a nutritious punch.

Flaxseed Nutrition Facts

Flaxseeds are sprinkled with quite an assortment of vitamins and minerals, along with being a great source of fiber and fats.

However, their most notable claim to fame is the sheer amount of omega-3 fatty acids that they contain, which is usually found in fish and is quite rare to find from plant-based sources.

This makes them come very high on my list of important foods for every vegan pantry.

Most importantly for this banana bread, they can produce a wonderful gel that is the perfect egg substitute for any recipes that require a binding agent. You can find ground flaxseeds in most of my other baked goods as well, savory or sweet.
