NYC Recipes: How to make the vegan Banana Bread from Goodsugar

As I mentioned on my post about the Levain Cookies recipe, I love to cook and I love trying to recreate foods and dishes I’ve tried at restaurants. And I bet this recipe is probably not a recipe that it’s on top of Google searches – but I guess it doesn’t hurt to share it. Goodsugar Banana Bread is one of the best banana breads I’ve tried in my life – and I’m so glad I was able to recreate a recipe with such a similar result!

So, first of all, in case you are not familiar, Goodsugar was founded by Marcus Antebi, who happens to also be Juice Press founder. Goodsugar is a relatively new vegan wellness business, where juices, salads, soups, and shots are part of a nutrient-forward menu. And there’s a bakery, too. Their first location was open in New York City.

When I saw the video above, from @thecarboholic, I was intrigued. I love banana bread – and I also love her recommendations, so I kept Goodsugar in my radar and, when I finally had the chance, I stopped by to try. And oh boy, it definitely didn’t disappoint. So good! It’s moist and it had a delicious crunchiness – because of a grain called millet. So, if you know this banana bread and you wanna recreate this recipe, don’t skip that!

And you know the most interesting part? It’s vegan, gluten-free and it doesn’t contain refined sugars. So, after checking the ingredients, I combined two recipes to create my version.

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 and 1/2 cup almond flour

  • ⅓ cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/4 cup millet
  • Mix the water and the chia seeds. Reserve for 5 minutes
  • Meanwhile, mash the bananas and mix with the oil, the maple syrup and the vanilla extract. Reserve.
  • Mix the flours, salt, cinnamon and baking powder.
  • Mix the chia seed mixture with the banana mixture and then add to the dry ingredients mix.
