Banana Bread Bundt Cake (Vegan)

Banana Bread Bundt Cake (Vegan)

For Christmas this year, A and I decided not to do gifts since we had just purchased our first home and were trying to save our money. We did however, get each other a Costco membership and call it a “gift”. Costco is like heaven for the environmentally conscious. Everything comes in large bulk containers, meaning that there is so much less packaging being used, and they don’t offer plastic bags, which is equally awesome. The only problem with shopping in bulk is that you have to worry about perishables expiring and creating food waste. Luckily, I am very phobic of food waste, so when our oranges started to go bad, we juiced them all into fresh OJ. Then when our bulk bananas started to perish, I froze half of them into 1″ chunks for our smoothie bowls, and baked the remaining 3 into this banana bread bundt cake.

Of course this banana cake is vegan, but it is also sooooo moist and way delicious. I love vegan baking because it is almost always automatically healthier, and it often makes you utilize ingredients you wouldn’t typically use. This cake is absolutely perfect to eat first thing in the morning and it is chock full of healthy fats and vitamins that you need. A and I like to eat it with a cup of coffee while we sit outside and watch the birds in the morning, such a lovely way to start the day.
