These vegan banana recipes will put those old, overripe bananas to good use!
From waffles and pancakes to banana bread and cupcakes, these treats highlight the greatness of the tropical fruit.
Bananas are an ideal ingredient for vegan cooking and baking.
Sweet and moist, they make for a great replacement for butter, sugar, and eggs.
So the next time you have some overripe bananas lying around, don’t throw them out, even if they’re dark.
In fact, the darker the peel, the sweeter and softer they are, and the better they are for baking!
If you’re looking for plant-based sweets and treats, look no further than these vegan banana recipes.

2. Vegan Banana Crumb Muffins
These muffins are so delectable, it’s a shock they’re healthy and vegan.

If you pop them in the freezer, they’ll last for up to a month!
3. Vegan Banana Pancakes
Classic pancakes are awesome, but these banana pancakes are next-level.
These flapjacks are soft and fluffy, while the bananas add sweetness and moisture. Fluffy + moist = pancake perfection.
Infused with cinnamon and nutmeg, they taste a bit like banana bread, only, they come in pancake form.
This recipe is versatile, to boot. Try folding in blueberries, chocolate chips, or whatever your favorite pancake mix-ins are.
4. Vegan Banana Pudding
This pudding has layers of sweet banana slices and coconut cream custard served in a glass. It’s equally gorgeous and delicious.
I can’t get enough of how rich and creamy the pudding is, even without the use of cream and dairy.
The secret is coconut milk thickened with arrowroot starch.
Whisk in mashed bananas and some optional turmeric for a pop of color, and voila.

These banana waffles are crisp and golden on the outside and fluffy and moist on the inside.
And unlike regular waffles, these guys are packed with a sweet and fruity banana flavor.
