Tahini Banana Bread by @plantbasedbythess

The only Banana bread recipe you’ll ever need; easy to bake, moist, delicious and perfectly sweet! Remember, the more yellow the peel of the bananas you’re using are, the sweeter your bread will be.

Have your slices with both savoury and sweet toppings; avokado, fennel and tomatoes, or any fresh cheese of your choice with light tahini, maple syrup and sesame seeds are favourite combinations!


Tahini Banana Bread

Yields 12 slices


3 bananas
1 1/2 plant milk
1/2 dl olive oil
3/4 dl light tahini
3/4 dl maple syrup
4 dl spelt flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
1/2 tsp salt

For garnish (optional)

1 banana
Sesame seeds

How to

Pre heat the oven to 175°C.

Put 3 peeled bananas, plant milk, oil and tahini in a mixing bowl. Mix until chunky using an immersion blender - without mixing to much (we don’t want a completely smooth batter) since that will make the bread more compact. Add flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, spices and salt. Fold together using a wooden spoon.

Line a baking tin with baking paper and pour in the batter. Slice 1 banana lengthwise and put on top, sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Bake the bread in the oven for 55 minutes. Take out from the baking tin and let cool on a cooling rack. Let it sit for 15 minutes before cutting in it.
