Vegan Banana Walnut Granola

Vegan Banana Walnut Granola
I've designed this Vegan Banana Walnut Granola recipe to be considerably under-sweet so it can be relied upon for a nourishing breakfast that will deliver sustained energy. If you prefer your granola more on the sweet side, increase the sugar by 2 to 4 Tablespoons.

As the granola is toasted, the heat brings out the full potential of rich banana-enhancing notes from the cashew butter, banana chips and walnuts. As bananas ripen, their starches convert to fructose which makes them sweeter and more suitable for baking. In fact, whenever you plan on baking with banana I advise you to always use over-ripe bananas. I usually transfer these over-ripe bananas to a plastic freezer bag and store them in the freezer. When I have enough saved up I use them in things like Banana BreadBanana Walnut Pancakes and this granola. 

Vegan Spring Form Crusts | Gluten-free

Vegan Spring Form CrustVegan crusts are the foundation of many desserts so it’s important to treat them seriously. When making a crust for a springform pan, it’s important to have options that pair nicely with your dessert. One example is that you'd want to use a gluten-free crust with a gluten-free cheesecake. Regular cheesecakes go great with a graham cracker crust recipe but what if you’re not going the traditional route? That Vegan Apple Caramel Cheesecake might be better paired with a ginger snap cookie crust or a walnut crust. What if you’re doing something entirely different from a cheesecake or maybe you have a gluten intolerance? Maybe you want to take it to the next level and make a Vegan Chocolate Mouse with a hazelnut crust! Now you can do almost any type of spring form crust if you have access to dry cookies or nuts based on the recipe below.

Vegan Carrot Cake Muffins or Bread

Vegan Carrot Cake Muffins or Bread Carrot cake is my all-time favorite dessert so I adapted it into a heartier quick bread in the form of this Vegan Carrot Cake Muffin recipe so I could justify having it for breakfast. It's pointless to resist carrot cake goodness in it's new quick bread form so don't even try. A dollop of almond butter on top contrasts nicely with carrot cake flavor and adds extra nutritious oomph to power your day of world domination.

Yeasted Vegan Banana Bread

Yeasted Vegan Banana BreadThe more I use yeast instead of baking powder for quick breads such as Yeasted Vegan Banana Bread, the more I notice that yeasted breads produce far better flavor results. How did we get into this bad habit of chemically leavening our sweet breads with baking powder and baking soda? One word: convenience. Yeasted breads take about 3 times longer to make because we have to wait for the yeast to do it's thing. Yeast leavened breads are usually considerably more flavorful than chemically leavened breads because as the yeast ferments and spits out C02 that rises the bread, it also produces a multitude of complex flavor compounds. This is not the case with chemically leavened breads where few flavor byproducts are produced during the chemical reaction between acid and alkalne that produces the C02. Yeasted Vegan Banana Bread is now my go-to vegan banana bread recipe.

Vegan Apple Walnut Stuffing

Vegan Apple Walnut StuffingThis Vegan Apple Walnut Stuffing recipe is great inside Stuffed Seitan or alongside some Cranberry Sauce during holiday feasts. Apples give it a light flavor-enhancing sweetness which is a great accompaniment to the textures of water chestnuts and walnuts.

Vegan Parsnip Cake

Vegan Parsnip CakeThis Vegan Parsnip Cake recipe is carrot cake's long lost brother, featuring parsnips which are slightly spicy and astringent. Parsnips are teamed up with pineapple, golden raisins, non-diary yogurt and a touch of cardamom to make a vegan cake that's lighter and spicier than carrot cake but every bit as tasty. Like carrot cake, Vegan Parsnip Cake should be liberally frosted with Easy Vegan Cream Cheese Frosting or a variant thereof for best results.

Sticky Vegan Cinnamon Rolls

Vegan Sticky Cinnamon RollsThis Sticky Vegan Cinnamon Roll recipe features brown sugar, maple syrup and just the right amount of cinnamon, making them moist and chewy. And if that's not enough, these vegan cinnamon rolls are topped with walnuts, raisins then drizzled with icing to make them an irresistible treat any time of day.

Banana Delight

Vegan Banana DelightOne wonderful summer in lovely Northern California, I had the pleasure of camping with one of my favorite people ever (who I'll just call Alf). That night he introduced me to something I'll never forget...Banana Delight! Serve with some quality sipping whiskey and good friends.

Vegan Maple Walnut Wonder Cookies

Vegan Maple Walnut Wonder CookiesI used to own a vegan baking company called Enchanted Oven Baking Co. This Vegan Maple Walnut Wonder Cookie was one of the cookies I sold, individually packaged, to health food stores around the San Francisco Bay Area around 2003-2005. Here it is in all its glory. This recipe has been modified from a 200 cookie batch so please excuse the wonky measurements.

Maple syrup, rolled oats, cinnamon, vanilla and just the right amount of raisins and walnuts really bring out the best in these dense, chewy maple oatmeal cookies.

Vegan Chocolate Coconut Magic Bars

Vegan Chocolate Coconut Magic BarsThis Vegan Chocolate Coconut Magic Bar recipe is quite possibly the only good thing I got from going to church as a youngster. Sundays were free-for-all sugar fests that kept the kids coming. This vegan dessert in particular often inspired me to secretly infiltrate the church kitchen with ninja-like abilities so I could get to it first while the church service was still in session.

Magic Bars are also known as Seven Layer Bars because they often involve seven alternating layers of things like walnuts, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, butterscotch chips and shredded coconut that are bonded together with a liberal drizzling of condensed non-dairy milk. I opted to forego the peanut butter chips and butterscotch chips due to their near-impossible vegan availability and because they usually push the sweetness envelope a little too far. I then made up for their lack of flavors by opting for Golden Vegan Caramel Sauce or Easy Vegan Caramel Sauce instead of Vegan Condensed Non-dairy Milk in the binding department. The result is a sticky gooey mess of a great thing.

Vegan Protein Power Granola


This Vegan Protein Power Granola recipe is great for a hearty first meal of the day because it's low in sugar, high in protein and high in flavor. It gets the bulk of its protein from hemp protein powder. It then utilizes natural sweeteners like maple syrup, chopped dates and raisins for a complex sweetness profile that won't send blood sugar levels through the roof, if you don't drown it in maple syrup anyway. Walnuts and pecans round out the crunch department in this vegan granola while providing a tasty contrast with the hemp powder.

Vegan Banana Walnut Pancakes

Vegan Banana Walnut PancakesThis easy to make Vegan Banana Walnut Pancake recipe features both banana purée and banana slices for maximum banana flavor. Walnuts add an earthy complexity. Top these vegan pancakes with a touch of almond butter, fruit and/or real maple syrup.

Vegan Banana Walnut Ice Cream


This Vegan Banana Walnut Ice Cream recipe makes wonderfully creamy ice cream due to its extensive use of bananas and cashew butter This vegan ice cream is further enhanced with non-dairy milk, walnuts and a touch of vanilla extract.

Vegan Pumpkin Spice Muffins or Bread

Vegan Pumpkin Spice MuffinsThis Vegan Pumpkin Spice Muffin recipe has a wonderful warm, buttery flavor that is enhanced by barley malt syrup, lemon juice, cinnamon, ginger and a touch of cloves. Pecans add flavor complexity and a delightful crunch. These vegan muffins are equally good with baked sweet potato purée substituted for the pumpkin as well.

Hearty Vegan Breakfast Muffins or Bread | Fruit Sweetened

Hearty Vegan Breakfast MuffinsThis Hearty Vegan Breakfast Muffin recipe was created because I wanted a healthy, hearty vegan muffin that provided good energy for the first meal of the day without giving me a mega-dose of sugar like most other muffins often do. These fruit sweetened muffins contain no refined sugar, more protein, complex carbs and fiber than most other muffins because they feature ingredients like dates, raisins, walnuts, rolled oats, hemp protein powder or soy flour, maple syrup and molasses. These ingredients lend a delightfully complex taste and contribute to a dense hearty texture. They're easy to make and provide about one week of breakfasts. Try them topped with almond butter.

Vegan Banana Walnut Muffins or Bread

Vegan Banana Walnut MuffinsThere's something about bananas and walnuts that just makes a perfect quick bread. This Vegan Banana Walnut Muffin recipe delivers it to your tastebuds thanks to the help of cinnamon, nutmeg a touch of vanilla extract. A slice of these vegan muffins topped with almond butter is a great thing.

Vegan Carrot Cake

Vegan Carrot CakeWhen I was little, I noticed my Mom eating cake. When I asked what kind of cake it was she replied, “you won't like it, it has carrots in it”. Later in life I realized that she said that so she could horde the best type of cake in the world all for herself! (Don't think I forgot about that Mom) Just to make sure that doesn't happen again, I designed this vegan carrot cake recipe which features carrot enhancing ingredients such as pineapple, molasses, cinnamon, cardamom with just the right amount of raisins and walnuts for optimal flavor contrast. It's great slathered with Cream Cheese Frosting. I also have a vegan carrot cake recipe for 8 inch cake pans.

Vegan Banana Walnut Cake

This Vegan Banana Walnut Cake recipe is a staple birthday cake in my family. Nutmeg, walnuts, and a touch of vanilla extract really brings out the banana. It pairs perfectly with Chocolate Frosting or Ganache.
