Classic banana bread recipes are sometimes hard to come by. Especially when you need a dairy free recipe. I have found a way to have the super moist texture of classic banana bread with oil rather than butter. And it is SO easy too!
When I was younger My grandma and I would make this recipe with butter. It was always super moist and I loved it as a dessert warm out of the oven. But as I grew I had a period of time where I was not eating any type of dairy. That took the option for this bread out but I still wanted the yummy goodness so I had to convert the recipe to a dairy-free option.
I could have replaced the butter with oil or applesauce but I opted for oil. I am so glad I did because I won’t go back to making this classic banana bread recipe with butter now.
