I happily stumbled upon this vegan banana bread recipe last Fall, and it's been a staple ever since. The funny thing is, I've never been really successful with banana bread. I've made it dozens of times, non-vegan with eggs and milk and such, but it's never turned out quite right. Then I tried this vegan recipe, and to my surprise and delight, it's the best banana bread I've ever made! It always turns out beautifully, with a nice, slightly crispy crust that is a great contrast to the soft bread. I also love the addition of allspice. It lends a fantastic flavor to the bread that I love. Try it! I'm sure you'll love it, too.
