  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 large medium-ripe bananas 1 1/4 lb.
  • 6 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup vegan sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • To a small skillet over medium heat, add walnuts. Cook until lightly toasted.
  • Together in a large mixing bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Stir in walnuts.
  • Into a food processor, add bananas. Pulse 10 times, until mostly smooth but some chunkiness still remains.
  • Add vegetable oil, sour cream, lemon juice, and vanilla bean paste. Pulse 4 more times to combine.
  • Into the flour mixture, gently fold in the banana mixture, just until blended.
