Summer berry banana bread

Cake for breakfast? Yes please! This fluffy banana bread is vegan, healthy and loaded with summer berries!

The most difficult part of baking vegan cakes is always to find a good substitute to eggs. In this case, bananas work perfectly! The texture is fluffy and moist and you won’t notice any difference with regular cakes.

And since it’s called a bread, it’s perfectly fine to spread peanut butter or jam on it, am I right? To be honest, I love it just as it is, straight from the oven 🙂
