Nothing says America quite like a loaf of banana bread. It’s the perfect breakfast, a yummy snack and even a dessert. What can I say, in America, we want it all. And recently, we’ve wanted it more than ever. Fun fact… Google reported that banana bread was the the most searched recipe in the world during the pandemic. Since it seems like everyone and their mother also started playing with sourdough during the pandemic, the natural result is sourdough banana bread! And if we are going to make sourdough banana bread, we may as well make it vegan. Because let’s be real, why would we add eggs to a bread that’s already fluffy and moist?

How to Make Banana Bread Moist

There’s nothing quite like perfectly moist banana bread. There are two keys to making your banana bread moist. First, you’ll want to use overly ripe bananas. The banana peel should be spotting with brown or maybe even mostly brown. Ripe bananas will add more moisture (and flavor) to your bread. Second, you’ll want to measure your flour judiciously. Adding too much flour will dry out the banana bread. While it seems silly, you’ll want to place your measuring cup on the counter and spoon in the flour until it is a little over-full. Then use a knife to level off the extra flour so you have the perfect amount of flour that the recipe asks for.
