Slow Cooker Banana Bread

Leave a comment

This is a recipe from The Vegan Slow Cooker. Banana bread in a slow cooker? Heck yes! This sounded super easy and fast….so I thought.

It started out easy enough, grab all your ingredients.

Then mix your ingredients together.

Pour the batter into a greased loaf pan and put it in the slow cooker.

Place a wooden spoon in place to allow heat to escape and not allow condensation to form on the lid.

This was supposed to only take a few hours, but after four hours, the bread still wasn’t cooked all the way through. It was also a complete mess!

I made this bread in a loaf pan instead of the slow cooker because I wanted to keep my slow cooker clean, but the batter overflowed the loaf pan and made a big mess of both the loaf pan and the slow cooker.

The flavor of this banana bread was ok, but the texture was way off. It was everything that a non-vegan would expect vegan food to be like. It was gummy and kind of gross to eat. I was really disappointed with this recipe. I really wanted a bread that I could throw in the slow cooker and would come out delicious and perfect. However, I guess I will just have to continue that vegan quest because this was not the bread I was looking for.
