Easter is the perfect time to get creative in the kitchen, whether you’re baking a delicious Easter Cake, vegan chocolate eggs or a simple pistachio banana bread.
Our Easter Pistachio Banana Bread recipe will definitely wow your friends and family at every egg hunt this season.
- 80 ml Lightly Sweetened Pistachio Drink
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 sticks unsalted vegan butter
- 3/4 brown sugar
- 4 ripe bananas
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- a pinch of salt
- optional: you can add 2 eggs in a batter
- Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease a pan or coat with nonstick spray. Set aside.
- Combine all dry ingredients together: whisk the flour, baking soda and salt together in a large bowl.
- Using a mixer, beat the butter and brown sugar together on high speed for about 2 minutes. Until smooth and creamy.
- Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the Lightly Sweetened Pistachio Drink, mashed bananas, and vanilla extract until combined.
- Slowly beat the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until no flour pockets remain. Do not overmix. Fold in some pistachios, if using.
- Spoon the batter into the prepared baking pan and bake for 60-65 minutes.
- Check the batter. A toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf will come out clean when the bread is done.
- Remove from the oven and allow the bread to cool completely in the pan set on a wire rack.
- Put some pistachio butter on top of your banana bread for the full experience.
