Vegan Carrot & Banana Baked Proats Recipe

Recipe by Laura Holloway (@_healthyhappylaura)

This Vegan Carrot Cake and Banana loaf is perfect for a healthy snack with your tea or coffee throughout the week, or warmed up and served with dairy-free yoghurt as a dessert. Alternatively, you could bake it for a friend or family member – homemade treats are always impressive, especially when they are guilt-free and tasty!

The recipe below is quick, easy, and, best of all, nutritious! It also doesn’t use a host of complicated vegan butter or egg alternatives that can be expensive and hard to find. Bananas not only provide a healthy source of micronutrients, such as vitamin C and potassium, but they make a fantastic vegan substitute for eggs in baking. There’s no need for any added sugar or sweetener in this recipe too because the Vanilla Soy Protein Isolate adds all the sweetness needed!

The Vanilla Soy Protein Isolate gives this banana and carrot cake loaf a boost of plant-based protein which, along with the oats and fruit, will keep you feeling full and satisfied.

It’s too easy and tempting to not give it a go…
