1. Banana Bread

Ingredients:
6 very ripe bananas
2/3 cup coconut sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups oatmeal flour
1 teaspoon baking powder

Method:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Put all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl. Mash them thoroughly with a fork until they form a chunky batter.
Put the batter into your baking container of choice. I love using a cupcake pan for delicious little chunks of banana bread!
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in your preheated oven. Enjoy!

2. Banana Smoothie

Ingredients:
2 frozen bananas
1 celery stalk
1 cup water
1 scoop vegan protein powder

Put all of the ingredients in your blender, blend well, and drink up!

3. Banana Pancakes

Ingredients:
3 bananas
1/2 cup flaxseed meal
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup maple syrup

Method:
In a bowl, thoroughly mash the bananas with a fork.
Add all the other ingredients to the bowl of mashed bananas, and mix well.
Heat a pan. Spoon a large dollop into the pan and spread it out. Repeat for as many pancakes as you can fit in the pan.
Flip each pancake once the first side is brown. Cook on the second side until the pancake is done through.

Tip:
Garnish with your favorite toppings! You can use more maple syrup, some fresh fruit, coconut flakes, vegan chocolate chips, or anything else you enjoy on your pancakes!

4. Overnight Plantain Oatmeal

Ingredients:
1 cup almond milk
1/2 cup oatmeal
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 large banana
1 tablespoon shredded coconut

Method:
In a mason jar, mash the banana with a fork. Add the oatmeal, chia seeds, and almond milk. Mix well.
Top with the shredded coconut. Seal the jar, stick it in the fridge overnight, and tomorrow’s breakfast will be ready when you wake up!

5. Banana Strawberry Ice Cream

Ingredients:
1 frozen banana
1/2 cup of frozen strawberry

Blend the frozen banana and frozen strawberries until smooth. It’s that simple!
Optionally, garnish your delicious ice cream with granola and fresh strawberries.

6. Banana Cereal

Ingredients:
1 cup almond milk
2 bananas
2 tablespoons oats
cinnamon

Method:
Slice one banana and arrange the slices in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for around 15 minutes, or until the slices begin to soften and darken. Put the baked banana slices in a bowl.
Slice the other banana, and put the raw banana slices in the bowl with the baked slices.
Pour the almond milk over the banana slices. Add the oats and cinnamon to taste. Stir and enjoy!

7. Banana Toast

Ingredients:
2 slices of whole grain bread

9. Banana Quesadillas

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon tahini
1 whole-flour tortilla
