One Bowl Wonder: Vegan Apple Walnut Bread

Good things come to those who… mix the right ingredients! That’s the saying I’m sticking with after trying this brilliant Vegan Apple Walnut Bread recipe. Make this Easy Vegan Banana Apple Bread filled with bananas, apple, nut butter, no added oil, nuts and chocolate chips. This banana bread has shredded apple in it. Use zucchini to make Banana Zucchini bread. You can add finely chopped apple as well for chunkier pieces. Make it with all spelt or wheat pastry flour or half and half whole grain + unbleached white.
