Mary’s Famous Banana Bread

I am happy enough when my parents branch out and try my vegan foods, but for them to make vegan foods is a whole other realm of jubilation. My mom whipped up her sister-in-law’s recipe for banana bread. In the past she has used eggs and butter, but this time she used flax/water mixture and vegetable shortening. It is seriously the best banana bread I’ve had.

Here she is!


  • 1/2 c vegetable shortening
  • 1 c sugar
  • 2 tbls ground flax with 6 tbls water
  • 2 c flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 3 medium ripe bananas, mashed

Mix all together and bake at 350 F for 40 minutes. Enjoy!
